Jangan maksa

Jangan maksa cuma keinginan kita
Kalau kamu juga tidak mau dipaksa-paksa
Jangan maksa bersikap ceria
Kalau sedang tak ingin tertawa
Jangan maksa ngebut di jalan raya
Kalau nantinya malah celaka
Jangan maksa kelihatan kaya
Kalau hanya untuk gaya

Jangan maksa apa pun juga
Karena hasilnya pasti sia-sia
Jangan maksa tentang rasa suka
Karena cinta datang dengan rela
Jangan maksa tetap menderita
Karena hati bisa lebih keras dari baja
Jangan maksa tapi tanpa usaha
Karena keberuntungan bukan cara

Jangan maksa semua harus sempurna
Yang penting bermakna dan berguna
Jangan maksa anak-anak cepat dewasa
Biarkan mereka tumbuh apa adanya
Jangan maksa merasa punya kuasa
Tetap bersama saja sudah luar biasa
Jangan maksa menjadi serupa
Berbeda bukan hal yang hina

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
