The willingness to change

when i was young and free,
and my imagination had no limit
i dreamed of changing the world

As i grew older and wiser,
i discover the world wouldn’t change
so i shortened my shights somewhat,
and decided to change only my country

but it too seems immovable,
as i grew ino my twilight years,
in one last desperate attempt

i settled for changing only my family
those close to me
but alas they would none of it

and know, as i lay on my deathbed,
i suddenly realized
“if i had only change my self first,
then by my example,
i might have change my family”
from their inspiration and encouragement
i would have then been able to better country
and who knows i may have been change the world

N.B.

Mungkin dapat dijadikan sebuah bahan renungan, paling tidak menjadi cerminan bagi diri saya sendiri untuk mulai melakukan sebuah perubahan ke arah positif. Untuk sekedar pembaca ketahui, tulisan ini bukan karya saya pribadi melainkan didapat dari batu nisan satu tokoh ternama Eropa. Sebelum meninggal beliau sempat meminta agar tulisan diatas diukir di batu nisannya. (Maaf, saya belum bisa menampilkan nama tokoh itu di posting ini, namun secepatnya entri ini akan saya lengkapi)

“Perubahan besar, selalu dimulai dari yang kecil. Mari kita mulai suatu perbaikan untuk dunia, dimulai dari sesuatu yang kecil, dari sesuatu yang sederhana, dan dari sekarang..!”
