In my small world

Have some coffee and poetry
Let the caffeine tell a story

In my big world,
Racing against time
Deadlines always on the line
All data must be define
Facts and fiqure, should be fine

In my small world,
Differences are made equal
Through words and poetic ritual
War and hatred in a mode of denial
Let the writings embrace us all

In my big world,

    The poet is the man with commitment and embracing family institution to the best he could be.
    The poem was written with passion, reflection and experience of his life. This is the element that giving a soul to his poems.
    The poet wrote well in Malay; in fact his can be so simple and complex in different point of view. And as a friend, I could see his sincerity towards his poems and prose.
    He is very talented Malaysian writer with love, critical thinking and observant and none can deny it and I always hope he will be heard sooner.

Best Poem of Ibnu Din Assingkiri

To My Dear Children

(i)
My teacher used to say,
Person who is problematic
Is a magnet for troubles
Like carcasses attracting flies
Infesting themselves.

Life could be hard,
If you choose the toughest way
Life could be hard,
If you choose just to stay -
Under your own lazy shell.

(ii)
My father used to say
Lived life with ease
Don’t mess other’s territories
Don’t bite the hands
Who gave you foods.

Friends come and go,
Lover may be replaced
But parents and siblings
Like cutting a flowing water
It won’t break up forever.
