Who Is The Fool?
By M.Arief Wibowo
Maybe you don’t have to tell her
Maybe she has realised it
the story of both of you has become
Maybe she has left you
She has completely forgotten you
Going on her life
and laughing happily with those dear friends of hers
But still you just think about her!
which, why, you just choose not to forsake
Now look at this:
Who’s the actual fool?
Who decides to stop living
Who has in mind to kill his life
living beyond the shady veil of misery
due to a mere girl
Wake up, hey you fool
Wake up and clear that mind of yours
Have you become so worthless?
Discarded down there?
Pull those legs of yours
and start making a step
Move yourself forward and forward
and never return
