The Tired Salaryman  - Poem by maria sudibyo

I try to live humble and selfless 
I try to satisfy myself with limit of happiness
But you want to take away that too
You want to ruin my little heaven

I try to carry on the hurt and the pain
I try to swallow all question and anger 
But you always tear it further
Do you really want to make me strained?

But what to be expected
You never listen about the things I like
And I'm not telling you my interest yet
So I just seem like a defiant child

All you ever seek is only your advantage
And you just envy every stage
You thought that the world is running for you
For happiness you can't even appreciate

Are we back to the same pattern?
Life filled with deep unsatisfactory
Feeling exhausted even before the day begins
Dragging our feet in endless burden

Sometimes you ask too much
Sometimes you reason so absurd 
That I could see clearly behind insecurity
You are just as lonely as everybody

Are we playing the broken record?
Nothing that changed to be better 
Bordering ourself in stubborn shell
Living inside the burning hell

So I try to create my dream
I try to carve my path with song
Remember how I would desire before 
And enjoy the light as much as I can

So I try to find the will to carry on
I try to understand the fear and sadness
Even though the wind favor me to be alone
I will never be an empty carcass
