Anak kecil

Kedengaran suara
anak kecil
dari jauh
hilang tumpuanku
buat seketika
semua masalahku
tiada
gelak tawanya itu
membuat semua terdiam
seolah kelam
bunyi dominant
bertepuk-tepuk
teriak
melalak
memekak
suatu bahasa
yang tak difahami manusia
kemudian
anak kecil itu membesar
janggal dengan dunia
serba kejam
tiada lagi dia
bertepuk
teriak
melalak
memekak

We grow up and sometimes we forget and we be different.. Don't we all wish the time would stop so we could remain that innocent and loved all the time.

That was the point of this poem. When we look at kids, life is so easy for them. They could laugh, sleep or play all day. We are always complaining about something, or someone. How we could for them not to grow up.
