Ibu & Anak (Indonesian)


Ada seorang anak pada usianya yang lanjut
berkata pada Ibunya
Hutangku tak akan lunas padamu, Ibu
Hidup sangat singkat, tetapi aku tak
mau jejakku terluka
Jejak panjang yang indah
Tak ingin terluka
“Jejakmu memang indah, Anakku”
Kenapa aku harus takut kepada Tuhan, Ibu?
Jika jejakku adalah kerinduan
Nyanyian cinta yang tak akan padam
Bicaralah padaku, Ibu
Tuhan selalu maha Kasih
Agama-agama hanya sungai di Bumi
Di langit akan aku temukan Cinta
“Jejakmu memang indah, Anakku”
Tetapi hutangku tak akan lunas padamu, Ibu
“Hanya kau telah padamkan perang di Bumi, Anakku”

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
