When things go wrong


Most of the people will

See what ever is nearest

And most likely

The foreground they see

Is messed up

… Full of debris

… Lots of garbage

… Not interesting

And the background

Which is faraway

Is very tempting

… Beautiful to see

… Looks peaceful and calm

… Free of clutter

Is it the reality?

Be there,

Judge for yourself.

On the beach

Playing with kids

Or just sunbathing

Or even go on for a swim.

… Take time

… Have time

… Make time

For yourself

To relax

And enjoy life.

Back to nature,

Nice to say.

… But try looking at

… The dry areas of

… Your country.

Where the trees wilt,

The sand hot and dry,

The wind blows the sand,

And the sky is so bright.

All in a moment.

And suddenly the opposite could happen,

And drought turns into flood.

Still, try to keep the nature

Be a nice and green environment….

Be careful

With how you

…. Think

…. Feel

…. Say

To and about others.

Look at the cliff ahead of you

You could fall

And hurt yourself

If you only look at

The mountains across the sea.

Tiu Kelep Lombok - Iksa Menajang

One of the things

I love

But seldom could make it

Is going to waterfalls

What I love

Is the flow of water from above

The mist created by it

And the wetness of us

The sound of water crashing

Against rock and earth below.

All these will

Wipe out the long walk

Crossing streams

Descending and ascending

To reach the fall

Life is so colorful

That is what we always heard

Many songs written around

The colors of life

But as with other things

In the world


Yes, sometimes

Our mind brings the conclusion


There is too much color

The world is too colorful

Here is what I have to say

About it


Have fun

Lots of fun

And start seeing

Things differently

As the colors of life

Is yours to create

And you command

Your own mind

No offense

But they have provided



In a place to relax

While the wind blows,

The waves roll,

And you can enjoy the beauty of the sea.

Buy some food and beverage there

And enjoy …

Or you can just sit at the sand for free
