Untuk Sang Pejuang (Indonesian)


Entah sudah berapa banyak kejatuhan yang kusaksikan,
Datang bersama bayang-bayang kelam kegelapan,
Menghantuimu, menelan semangatmu ke dalam mendung,
Menghianatimu hingga kau tak mampu lagi bersenandung.

Namun sebanyak itu juga kusaksikan kebangkitanmu,
Meski ratusan kali retakan kasar bumi menghempaskanmu,
Maka ratusan satu kali kau akan bangkit dengan tegar,
Kembali berjalan hingga kegelapan itu seolah pudar.

Ah, tapi realita memang memuakkan!
Masih juga harus kau terima penghianatan,
Terangnya siang ternyata hanya penipuan,
Hangatnya malam ternyata hanya ujian.

Akupun tak mengerti,
Mengapa semuanya jadi begini.
Namun aku tak bisa masuk ke dalam duniamu,
Dan aku benci keterbatasanku dalam mendukungmu.

Keluhmu kupikirkan,
Sakitmu kurasakan,
Hingga seolah aku ikut tertelan,
Namun tak ada yang bisa kulakukan.

Jangan menyerah! Jangan menyerah sekarang, pejuangku!
Sekali lagi saja, angkat pedang dan perisaimu,
Tunjukkan pada dunia kalau kau tetap tak tertaklukkan,
Walau jalanmu sepi dan kau berjuang sendirian.

Jangan menyerah... Jangan menyerah sekarang...
Karena pada akhirnya kau pasti akan menang.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
