THE FIRST LADY OF THINKING

“Be stupid, but learn how to be foolish
Without being in the spotlight,
Do not worry: you will survive and be lucky.”
—Paulo Coelho

Lined up as MPs in Parliament
My thoughts
Debates for the time
And the days that flow.

One
Raises and speaks for
This winter’s cold weather,
Must take something
Its freezing passed through me.

Other one
Complains about the tweets
bird,
They are not listening now about how long
Mountains bump.

That white thought
Polemicizes itself:
No, it’s not.
Yes, it is.
Present, first lady of thought.

At the end of the session
plenary
.
I vote unanimously
You take the wheel of the soul.

Come on now
Until you arrive
Only you
Then we talk
I’m sitting there waiting you.

 

WANITA PERTAMA BERFIKIR

“ Jadi bodoh, tapi belajar jadi bodoh
tanpa duduk tengah pentas.
Jangan risau, kau akan selamat dan bernasib baik”
-Paul Coelho –

Beratur seperti Ahli Dewan di Parlimen Pikiran ku Berdebat masa itu Dan hari-hari berikutnya.

Seorang Bangun dan bercakap Cuaca dingin musim sejuk ini Mesti mengorbankan sesuatu Ianya membeku melalui ku.

Seorang lagi Mengadu tentang kicau burung, Mereka tidak mendengar sekarang tentang berapa lama Gunung bertahan

Pemikiran bersih itu Berpolemik sendirinya: Tidak, ianya tidak. Ya, ianya ya. Yang hadir, Wanita Pertama Berfikir. Dihujung sesi Sidang Pleno

Aku mengundi sebulat suara Kau pandu roda jiwa

Mari sini sekarang Hingga engkau sampai Hanya engkau Kemudian kita bercakap Aku duduk di situ menunggu mu.
