"How can you be so damn perfect? How can you want to be with my broken soul? In this battle of perfection and brokenness you win. Your perfection beats all the competition. My brokenness just tears us down. Why are you so damn perfect? Why can't I be like you?" • • • (not my best piece.

It's okay to be sad... To be shattered into a million pieces... It's okay to be hurt, to sleep all day, to fall and to take your time before getting up again as long as you do get up (eventually) better, stronger and more awesome than ever. • • • #rock #writers #write #huxley #sumthing #hustle #coffee #tea #poetsworld #poetsociety #poets #quotegram #quoteoftheday #writergram #writersgram #writersroom #writerslife #writersnetwork #writersblock #writerscommunity #wordoftheday #wordsofwisdom #wordstoliveby #creativewriting #instapoet #loveyourself #spokenword
#repost from @wikipuisi - AKU MASIH SANGAT HAFAL NYANYIAN ITU - Gus Mus . . Aku masih sangat hafal nyanyian itu Nyanyian kesayangan dan hafalan kita bersama sejak kita di sekolah rakyat Kita berebut lebih dulu menyanyikannya ketika anak-anak disuruh menyanyikannya di depan kelas satu persatu Aku masih ingat betapa kita gembira saat guru mengajak menyanyikan lagu itu bersama-sama . Sudah lama sekali Pergaulan sudah tidak seakrab dulu Masing-masing sudah terseret kepentingannya sendiri atau tersihir pesona dunia Dan engkau kini entah dimana . Tapi aku masih sangat hafal nyanyian itu sayangku Hari ini ingin sekali aku menyanyikannya kembali Bersamamu : . Indonesia tanah air beta Pusaka abadi nan jaya Indonesia sejak dulu kala Slalu dipuja-puja bangsa Disana tempat lahir beta Dibuai dibesarkan bunda Tempat berlindung di hari tua Sampai akhir menutup mata . . Aku merindukan rasa haru dan iba Di tengah kobaran kebencian dan dendam serta maraknya rasa tega Hingga kini ada saja yang mengubah lirik lagu kesayangan kita itu Dan menyanyikannya dengan nada sendu : . Indonesia tanah air mata Bahagia menjadi nestapa Indonesia kini tiba-tiba Slalu dihina-hina bangsa Disana banyak orang lupa Dibuai kepentingan dunia Tempat bertarung berebut kuasa Sampai entah kapan akhirnya . . Sayang, dimanakah kini engkau Mungkinkah kita bisa bernyanyi kembali lagu kesayangan kita dulu Dengan akrab seperti dulu . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #sastra #puisi #sajak #poem #poems #quote #kutipan #poetry #poet #poets #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #okaholic #puisiindonesia #penyair #puisicinta #sajakcinta #sajakindonesia #sastraindonesia #haripuisi #puisikoran #puisipendek #indonesiamerdeka #72tahunindonesia #merdeka #gusmus #gusmusquotes #wikipuisi
The war within Would it be kind To blow out my mind And release the demons from their cage They only grow stronger with age They're voices become crisper As my voice is nothing but a mere whisper An echo of the past Who knew the control wouldn't last So has succumb to the bottomless void Left fractured and paranoid I know they aren't real As the light they steal So now I don't know which one I am Four faces of the same man Frozen in the icy rain Unable to feel pain Destined to fight a vicious war Each side keeping score But no side ever winning Chances of being whole gradually thinning So this is where I'll stay and sit In the bottom of my minds pit. #poet #poets #poetic #poetry #poetsofig #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsociety #poetryofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #creative #create #poem #poems #poemsofinstagram #write #writer #writers #writerslife #writersnetwork #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #writerlife #word #words #wordsmith
