Kerendahan Hati
Karya: Taufik Ismail

Kalau engkau tak mampu menjadi beringin yang tegak dipuncak bukit,
Jadilah belukar, tetapi belukar yang baik, yang tumbuh ditepi Dana
Kalau kamu tak sanggup menjadi belukar,
Jadilah saja rumput, tetapi rumput yang memperkuat tanggul pinggiran jalan

Kalau engkau tak mampu menjadi jalan raya,
Jadilah saja jalan kecil, tetapi jalan setapak yang membawa orang ke mata air
Tidaklah semua menjadi kapten
Tentu harus ada awak kapalnya

Bukan besar kecilnya tugas yang menjadikan tinggi rendahnya nilai dirimu
Jadilah saja dirimu
Sebaik-baiknya dirimu sendiri

Semoga puisi ini bisa memberi inspirasi ya.. Have a good day all

We who fight for our dream suffer far more when it doesn't work out, because we cannot fall back on the old excuse: "Oh, well, I didn't really want it anyway." We do want it and know that we have staked everything on it and that the path of the personal calling is no easier than any other path, except that our whole heart is in this journey.

Then, we must be prepared to have patience in difficult times.

Are defeats necessary?

Well, necessary or not, they happen.
When we first begin fighting for our dream, we have no experience and make many mistakes. The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and get up eight times.

So why is it so important to live our personal calling if we are only going to suffer more than other people?

Because, once we have overcome the defeats-and we always do-we are filled by greater sense of euphoria and confidence. In the silence of our hearts, we know that we are proving ourselves worthy the miracle of life.

Thank you Mr Paulo Coelho. I will always say never say never (now listening: Never Say Never by Justin Bieber) \m/
