No class, suspended, because of monsoon rains
Rains that started last Monday
Rainy days in Mondays like the classic “The Carpenters” song
Making me feel sleepy.
Father arrived with bad news to say
As usual, the conference has started.
We talked about the work – his work
And found out that he will take a leave for pete sake!
He will take a leave, not to say that he will retire,
Retirement is different from taking a 5 days leave
He will take the leave, so that he wont see
How problematic the office can be
I envy those who are educated,
They know how to make lies the truth
In the eyes of the majority he will win
In a battle of ideas that is inevitable of him.
I envy those who can make things worse,
Making a simple life in a catastrophe world;
I am not in the position to write this things,
But surely I am entitled of my freedom of speech.
To speak needs to think,
Of what to say and how to say,
In this society that my family is in,
We are not entitled to make criticism
Over the big boss in front of me.
I am afraid that I might encounter,
Person like her weeping me in vain.
I hate those who see me, not as who I am,
Capable of doing things that can turn
Their lives in upside down.
Tipsy curvy life is what I want
For those who bought my father in tears,
Not because I want revenge,
Not only because of my father
But because of millions of people who are also in vain.
I am sick of this life, making moves on how to advance,
Personal interest over public interest,
Which keeps me inquiring,
Is there really a concept of justice
In country like this?
Viewing in international arena, we live in a capitalist- democratic society,
Free – flow of goods, services and even ideology,
But it is inevitable in a society
To have a contraction between the burgeosie and the proletariat.
Which makes things worst; proletariats clamors for democracy and equality,
But let’s face the reality, egalitarian will never exists,
Since each individual personality has it’s own realistic mindset
That will advance it’s interest over the other.
We want to advance the human rights,
But certainly we can’t do that,
As long as disparity exists
No one can exit.
How to prove that I can make things better
Is what my parents told me
You’ve seen the status quo,
What is you antithesis for this?
You want change?
How will you make one?
How will you participate?
How will you make things better
If people like them still in this world?
All I could do,
As I said to them, is to study
Learn the basics of the game,
Make the most of the strategic planning
As deeper as it can be.
I will enter the game,
Not now but in the future let’s say.
I will make different strategies,
Not to lose in the game.
I remembered what my professor said,
You are in an intellectual journey,
You need to become the philospher kings and queens.
To make life a better .
Since to govern needs intelligence,
But what if, the intelligence corrupted
Our society that we should make a living?
