Puisi Tentang Cinta Sejati



CINTA YANG AGUNG
karya : Kahlil Gibran

Adalah ketika kamu menitikkan air mata
dan masih peduli terhadapnya..
Adalah ketika dia tidak mempedulikanmu
dan kamu masih menunggunya dengan setia..
Adalah ketika dia mulai mencintai orang lain
dan kamu masih  bisa tersenyum sembari berkata
 “Aku turut berbahagia untukmu”

Apabila cinta tidak berhasil…
bebaskan dirimu…
Biarkan hatimu kembali melebarkan sayapnya
dan terbang ke alam bebas lagi ..
Ingatlah… bahwa kamu mungkin menemukan cinta
Dan kehilangannya..
tapi.. ketika cinta itu mati..
kamu tidak perlu mati bersamanya…

Orang terkuat bukan mereka yang selalu menang..
melainkan mereka yang tetap tegar ketika
mereka jatuh

Puisi Tentang Moral Bangsa


Pesan Tinggalah Kesan

Akankah nantinya kebohongan itu menjadi baik?
Ketika dunia serba terbalik
Tak peduli berbagai kritik
Dengan alasan memberi yang terbaik
Didengarkanlah Setan Berbisik

Katanya bangsa ini bernilai?
Nyatanya, begitu mudah dusta tersampai
Bak pohon yang digoyang-goyangkan angin
Termakanlah prinsip oleh orang lain

Yang dulu asli, sekarang imitasi
Yang dulu suci, sudah habis tercuci
Semua berjalan bagai parodi
Atau bahkan tragedi

Sungguh mengenaskan bukan?
Negeri kebanggaan, dipenuhi penipuan
Tak diperhatikan, namun dipermalukan
Tak dapat penghormatan, melainkan pelecehan
Menjadi sorotan, karena mencengangkan

Negeri ini serasa berantakan
Begitu sulit kejujuran ditemukan
Begitu mudah terucap kebohongan
Tak ingatkah mereka leluhur berpesan,
Tentang menjunjung sebuah kejujuran
Namun pesan, tinggalah kesan

Puisi Tentang Seorang Pemulung


Balada Seorang Pemulung
 
Dia yang terus saja bersedih
Merindukan peluk dan kasih
Haus akan belaian
Juga butuh perhatian

Mengenakan pakaian berdasi
Memakan spageti
Sekedar menjadi mimpi,
Yang seakan khayal menghampiri

Meski  badan terlewat kurus,
Meski  kulit pun telah hangus,
Tetap dijalaninya dengan tulus
Terus mengais,
Walau kadang menetes tangis

Dia tak pernah menginginkannya
Namun Tuhan menakdirkannya
Dia tak penah ingin disakiti
Namun mereka memaki

Tentu saja dia bertanya
Apakah dirinya ini hina?
Sehingga terus hidup merana
Apakah tak cukup uang negara?
Untuk menghidupinya

Puisi Tentang Kehancuran Bumi




RINTIH TANGIS SANG BUMI

Bumi yang lelah mencari cinta
Terus berjalan
Bersama laju waktu yang tak kenal henti dan asa
Dengan seretan kaki yang renta

Teriaknya tak memekakkan telinga
Sehingga eksploitasi berjalan dengan tenangnya
Menambah kelumpuhan tubuh penuh luka
Tercabik dan tersiksa

Perih hanya membuatnya pening
Dicarinya penawar derita dengan hening
Dalam pojok hati yang tak lagi bening
Namun kering…

Terengah dalam dekapan anonim kehidupan
Hijaunya kedamaian terlumatkan oleh desakan pembangunan
Atas nama kesejahteraan
Dengan cara yang tak termaafkan

Kemanakah sang Amor melanglang buana
Meninggalkannya dalam bara panas
Yang membakar senandung cinta manusia
Melalui cerobong asap pembuat tandas

Derap kehidupan terasa menggempita
Semakin meluluhkan badan ringkihnya
Yang semakin menua dan hampir tak bernyawa
Demi kemilau rupiah

Puisi Kerusakan Alam



Jeritan Bumiku

Dalam diam aku mulai pahami
Alam nusantara meronta, menahan keserakahan birahimu
Tiada ketenangan, tiada tentram
Kekalutan yang meraja terus meraja
Mencekam hati budak-budak Ilahi

Bumiku rusak tiada dipinta
Murka menelan beribu nyawa
Tanggung jawab serasa hilang, kalah oleh egomu
Ia bak berbilang namun tak berkata
Akankah kembali alam surga dunia ini?

Isak tangis rentaan penghuni alam memekik
Membahana
Menderu angin bersambut hadirnya derita
Rusaklah bumiku
Bumi tempat berpijak, tempat bergantung

Adakah kau mendengar
Jeritan nyawa melayang terkikis harapan
Air, angin, tanah menangis
Tak kuasa melawan kepedihan yang kau tarikan diatas kepuasanmu
Kau tuli, buta, bisu
Tak sadar, Engkaulah
sang perusak itu
Perusak bumi nusantaraku
