THE TONGUE

Has been published at Contact Magazine, Second Edition, Number 11, May – June 1995


THE TONGUE

Like a bird,
it can sing melodiously
Like a priest,
it can speak wisely
Like a dew on the thirsty leaves
it can console broken hearts
Like a sunshine in the morning
it can cheer somebody up

Like the angry fire,
it can burn a heart
Like a liar,
it can make untrue promises
Like a knife,
it can cut
even kill cruelly

So,
Be careful with your tongue
Even though you really hit ont the ceiling,
Try to remain cool as a cucumber
For your tongue can create WAR and PEACE!

memang lidah tak bertulang
tak terbatas kata-kata
tinggi gunung seribu janji
lain dibibir lain di hati
