Me, You, Them - Poem by Nur Meiyati

Dear you

I wanted to know
If I had gone too far
Or played too long on the STAGE
Or made them bored
So I decided to communicate with them
By posting those two poems
So suddenly...
That made people think the story had ended
I said “You have read some parts of my life story”
But it had given an impression of a happy ending story

I was so stunned
To capture the reactions I got
Most of them welcomed the ending
Does that mean they ask me to get down from the stage, I wonder
Does that mean people tend to enjoy only the happy ending story, I wonder

So many things I can learn from that
From you and me and them
So many
I can list more than seventeen
I gain an insight about choice, power, freedom of speech, virtual world, global era, and the world trends
I have a raw insight about how probably heroes are made or designed
I can also see there are a lot lot of poets with wonderful heart

It seems most of them can also learn many things
Not only from me or you
But also from each of them
They see themselves from inside and outside
Everyone is both an insider and an outsider
That is great

Those days...
They apparently got fun as they could laugh at themselves and laughed at each other
I silently smiled
But I didn't want them to think that I fooled them, that I didn't
So I dared not tell them what had made me smile
For fear that they would take back the sundae ice cream they intended to give me
Oh haha. … they have imagined too deep and too detailed

The summary is:
I am glad to be me
I am glad to involve you
Even everyone can be me and you
In the same story or in a separate story
As I and You are NOT copyrighted
