We Teach

~We teach   because there is a great fulfillment that comes  in working with boys   and girls.   ~We teach   because We wanted to be sculptors,   and We can do so,   by shaping lives for the future.   ~We teach   because We wanted to be artists,   and We can do so,   by painting dreams for children.   ~We teach   because We wanted to be musicians, […]

Anak Kecil Berlari-lari

Anak kecil berlari-lari, Riang, gembira, sambil tertawa, Indah sungguh ibu pertiwi, Aman, damai, sentiasa. Nun jauh di sana, Anak kecil berlari-lari, Sedih, berlinangan air mata, Berlari, menyelamatkan diri. Tidakkah kau lihat wahai kawan, Bumi bertuah, hijau melata, Syukurlah diri wahai kawan, Bumi bertuah, milik kita. Nun jauh disana, Buminya masih berlinangan air mata, Darah merah, segar mengalir, Anak kecil menangis kesepian, Mencari-cari, erti kehilangan. Tanah […]

Sonnet 17 and 3 Quarters

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s bray? Thou art more ugly and more desperate. Rough winds do shake the fleas of May, And summer fortunately hath to short a blind date; Sometime the eye of heaven shall not shine, And often is his cold complexion dirtied; And every fur from furs so bovine, By chance, and nature’s crazy course, untrimm’d; But thy equine summer […]

Where Is The Boy?

Where are all the butterflies that once were? Where are all the smiles that you had? Where is the boy that you once were? Where is the joy that you once had? For once, you were a boy, Who had all the smiles in life, Having fun, full of joy, Running, and catching butterflies. You were a joy to see, Full of bursting energy, A […]

Veiled Love

Veiled Love by karlbum / rahman Where are you my love, Are you in my grasp? Or are you someone’s love, Have you not heard my wisp? There you are my love, Seeming so near… Yet in truth my love, You are so far… My veiled love, Shall I proceed; And face what I feared, An unrequited love. Or shall I stay my hand, And […]

Ada Yang Bertanya

Aidil Fitri 2003

The Blue Mosque, Turkey (c) 2001 Robert Downie @ philiphuang.com (edited by karlbum) Kembali Ke Pangkuan Lebaran oleh karlbum Lebaran menyinar kembali, Penat lelah sebulan terubati, Rasa rindu semakin membara, Teringat sahabat serta saudara. Lebaran menyapa sekali lagi, Diufuk pagi nan suci, Kanak-kanak ketawa riang, Si remaja semakin girang. Lebaran kembali menyinsing, Hadiah dari ilahi, Marilah kita ziarah-menziarahi, Rakan dan taulan yang kian terasing. Lebaran […]

Gurindam Jiwa Merana

Hati gundah gulana, Terseksa jiwa merana, Tak terperi kesakitan, Tanpa kesudahan Hati gundah gulana, Jiwa meronta-ronta, Apakah indah apakah kerana, Jiwa ku meminta minta, Hati gundah gulana, Sakitnya tidak terperi, Lemah badan tidak kerana, Sakit bukan umpama duri, Hati gundah gulana, Sakit nian tak bermadah Bilakah akan bernoktah, Terseksa jiwa merana. Nota: Cuba untuk menggunakan kiasan sebanyak mungkin, menggunakan unsur-unsur bahasa klasik. 🙂

Walking upon this land, I remember my own land, I long to be home, on my land, I long to be in Malaysia, […]
