Puisi bahasa inggris

MY AUNT IS MY MOTHER

When my mother was born I do not know
every year to grow my children who are hungry for love
passed more passes
I own no accompanying

But then I found you
take care, look after me, love me
My happy with your
very happy

You should call my aunt my mother
I was sad when you are gone
today was my day so lonely without you
Did aunt want you to be my mother?

Aunt said “anytime may call mom”
I was amazed to hear
my day filled with fun day
until you are old and frail

Until the end of life
mother will still love me
in time, wherever and whenever
I’m proud of you .. my mother’s aunt

 

BESTFRIEND

Smile ..

when we laugh together .
i fell happy when we share the pain .
because you are my bestfriend .
sometimes i fell sad because u make me heard .
but i know you’llbe my bestfriend .

Friend ..
thanks foe erevything .
erevything tou can do and do it for me .
I LOVE U ALL .

A LETTER TO A FRIEND

It’s always hurt to see you cry
To see tears falling like rain from the sky
And there’s no answer for why
I never question myself, I never try

It’s always hurt to know there’s nothing I can do
And fact that I don’t even know what to do
It’s so sad but so true
Feels like the color blue

Someday we’ll see we were wrong
And then we realize the day has done
Time won’t turn back, it’s no use to regret
It’s not easy to say good bye, but someway we have to try

Sometimes it’s hurt to remember
About the days we had together
And a piece of heart inside me
Carved with your smile, you can see…

It was the day when I used to care
Think about you, anytime, anywhere
The day when I used to drive you home
When the night was so cold and you were alone

That’s just history, saved properly in my memory
Now we are so far and so different, and yet so silent….
No voices when you say, just few words on my display
That’s OK. Thanks anyway….

PS. I’m sad about the problem you had
But don’t worry my friend,
I’ll be the man when you look behind

 

THE LAST DATE WITH THE MOON

Here I am, standing in the brink of the day
Staring at the sun that has gone away
And a smile upon your face,
Make me never wanna leave this place

There you are, hardly I can see cause you just so far
I see your eyes blinking, are you a star?
But I remember you said you’re a moon
So I should have seen you soon

And here we are now,
You come to me somehow
You are getting closer and closer,
But why I feel like a stranger?

I remember,
It’s been 365 nights since the last goodbye
It’s too long for me, that’s the reason why

Now please come down, get lower
I’m on the top of the tower and can’t go higher
I have something to say to you
I need to tell you, that… I wanna stop loving you

THE MOON HAS FALLEN

Nothing to say, the rain drifted my words away
No place to stay, the love was taken away
The moon has fallen, the heart has broken
I’m here, fighting against my own demon

The fight of good and bad,
Happy and sad
Love and hate,
But I think it’s too late….

Looks like the demons win,
They’re laughing loud on my sins

Now I’m waiting for forgiveness
From you, not from others
Thousands rivers won’t be enough to wash me
From my sins, and from all the demons in me
______________

A LETTER TO GOD

Dear God,
I am sorry not to take the path You made
My forgiveness to obey the spoke You whisper
My apologized to ignore Your prohibition
I am sorry to travel alone without Your guide

Dear God,
Maybe I am to proud to myself
My confidence to choose all my path alone
This greed that wanting more than I need
The selfish arrogant ungraceful man

Now I am lost in the middle of nowhere
Stand between the dark cold scary valley
This darkness makes me loose my sight
The fog does not allowed me to see the light

Dear God,
Slowly my conscious turn to madness
This eyes getting blurry and shaded
The sound of nature fading away I can not hear
My body is numb I can not even stand

Dear God,
I know I just a sinner
Disgrace my self with all my sins
Throw away your blessing grace
Now I just turn into something I am not

Dear God,
Please take my soul away
To take Your undying conviction
I do not deserve to live this life no more
The demon has own my soul forever

I HOPE I CAN FORGET YOU, SOON

I don’t know, why I should thingking like that
Is about you and only you
I don’t know why I love you so much and miss you much

Every time I see you in my mind
And
Every night I see you in my dreams
I don’t know why I should thingking about you
Sometimes, I’m so doubt so I’ll never forget you for forever
Have more time I tried to do it
But I can’t (forget) do it
Although I have to try
I don’t know why, are you same like me??
Are you know, I always make our story to my poetry
Whenever I create my poetry, I cried…
Sometimes, I regret to meet you because I things to meet you is the happy moment.
And it make I’m so difficult to forget you and these moment

If I know all of will like that, I never want to know you more and more
The fact, I never wish for you to love me
I never thought that you must know about my mind.
But ever, I have mind so you thing like me.

Have you ever know, if I read my poetry I’ll be down
I smiling to remind these last time, sad moment, sweet moment, until the seriously moment
I miss the times and want to back to the last

WHERE CAN I LIFE

I runway from my life
Hope that i can find the paradise
But i think it so hard
I am going to the hell

Maybe i take a wrong way
But no way back to star again
My distination still so far
And too fast if i think to going home

I just wanna do
Work for life not life for work
just wanna find the new place
Where can i life
All i wanna want
Where I can get the better life
For anything that i do
I wanna make it true

Sometime i feel so alone
And no one here to tell
I am finally now believe the feel
Couse it so hard
Couse it’s so far

This is my time to change my word from the painImage

Pidato bahasa inggris

National Education Day (HARDIKNAS)

Asslamualaikum wr. wb.
 

The honorable ones the principle of SMA Negeri 01 Pademawu, all teachers and administration staff of SMA Negeri 01 Pademawu and all my friends from grade X till Xii.
 
Before I begin to give a speech, I would like to invite you to thank to Allah the Almighty, Who has given us Mercy and Blessing, so we can meet together in this blessing place. And also I don’t forget to deliver sholawat and salam to our prophet Muhammad SAW, Who has brought us from the darkness to the brightness, so we are always in the right way.
 
Ladies and gentlemen
 
It be a great hour for me, to stand right here in front of you all to give a speech about education under the title “What happen with our education?” in this National Education Day or HARDIKNAS.
 
To begin this speech, I would ask you two things about our education. What happen with our education?  Is our education well enough or bad enough if we compere with other country?
 
If you have ever heard about the news last year about our international education rank, you would be surprised. As quoted form Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report  2013 which is published by UNESCO and launched in New York on Sunday, 1/3/2013,  our international education rank is at 69th place from 129 surveyed countries all over the world. This rank is lower than in 2011.
 
It opens a question that runs in my head, what happen with our education? Indonesia is a great country with many talented young generations. It was undoubted again that there are so many Indonesian students who win the international education Olympiads such as mathematics, chemical, physics and other. But why our international education rank is still low. So what happen with with our education? 
 
Our government had made some policies which relate to the improvement of our educational standard by improving the national examination (UN) standard which rise year by year. Our government also made an effort to improve our educational standard by improving the teachers’ quality with a programme which well known as “Sertifikasi”. But why our education rank never change. So what happen with our with education?
Ladies and gentlemen
 
So what happen with our education?
 
But sooner I realize one thing. Our education rank actually depends on one thing, only one thing. Our education rank depends on us. Good or bad the education of the countries depend on their students. If we want to change our bad educational paradigm, lets begin with change our perspective with the terms of education itself by keep trying, keep studying, keep innovating, keep inventing for sake of our education.
 
Not much that I can say to day, just a few of words above that I can deliver to you at this moment, thank a lot for your attention and I also ask forgiveness for my mistakes, and the last I say:

Wasalamualaikum wr. wb.

Jika anda sekalian pernah mendengar tentang berita tahun lalu tentang peringkat internasional pendidikan kita, anda akan terkejut. Seperti di kutip dari Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report 2011 yang di keluarkan oleh UNESCO dan di luncurkan di New York pada hari Senin, 1/3/2011, peringkat pendidikan internasional kita berada pada tempat ke 69 dari 129 negara yang di survey di seluruh dunia. Peringkat ini lebih rendah dari pada di tahun 2010.

Ini membuka sebuah pertanyaan yang berlarian di kepala saya, ada apa dengan pendidikan kita? Indonesia adalah negara hebat dengan banyak generasi muda bertalenta. Tidak diragukan lagi bahwa terdapat banyak siswa Indonesia yang memenangkan olimpiade-olimpiade pendidikan internasional seperti matematik, kima, fisika dan lainnya. Tetapi mengapa peringkat internasional pendidikan kita masih rendah. Jadi ada apa dengan pendidikan kita?

 
Pemerintah kita telah membuat beberapa kebijakan yang berhubungan dengan peningkatan standar pendidikan kita dengan meningkatkan patokan ujian nasional (UN) yang meningkat tahun demi tahunnya. Pemerintah kita juga membuat sebuah usaha untuk meningkatkan standar pendidikan kita dengan meningkatkan kualitas guru-guru dengan sebuah program yang dikenal dengan “Sertifikasi”. Tetapi mengapa peringkat pendidikan kita tidak pernah berubah. Jadi ada apa dengan pendidikan kita?
 
Hadirin yang terhormat
 
Jadi ada apa dengan pendidikan kita?
 
Tetapi segera saya menyadari satu hal. Peringkat pendidikan kita sebenarnya bergantung pada satu hal, hanya satu hal. Peringkat pendidikan kita tergantung pada kita. Baik atau buruknya pendidikan suatu negara tergantung siswa-siswanya. Jika kita ingin merubah paradigma buruk pendidikan kita, mari kita mulai dengan merubah pandangan kita dengan istilah pendidikan itu sendiri dengan tetap mencoba, tetap belajar, tetap berinovasi, tetap menemukan untuk kebaikan pendidikan kita.
 
Tidak banyak yang saya bisa katakan hari ini, hanya beberapa bait kata di atas yang dapat saya sampaikan kepada kalian pada kesempatan kali ini, terima kasih banyak atas perhatiannya dan saya minta maaf atas kesalahan-kesalahan saya dan akhir kata saya ucapkan:
 

Wasalamualaikum wr. wb.Image
