Malam Citra Puisi

Father, Darryl, Me, Qawiem and Yus
On February 19, we had our Malam Citra Puisi. I was one of the poets that are supposed to recite poem on the stage.  Our poem was Tukang Besi di Bengkel Kereta Api. Here's the poem:

Dia lelaki muda dari lembah
tak sempat menatap mata ayah
mengenggam hidup warisan alam
menukul besi
menggelek tayar kereta api
wajah merah memain percikan bunga api
ia mengetuk bersama siul kenari dunia baru
menggiling percaturan nafas
tanpa mengenal jalur kesal
demi upah semangkuk sup awal bulan

dia lelaki tiga zaman
telah dilengkungnya fajar kelabu
telah disilangnya keringat siang
dialah lelaki penakluk malam
menyentik hujan
silih berganti
jari kematunya masih mengetuk jeriji
seperti juga setia dia
menghitung malam
di bengkel tua istirahat seminit berbantal besi
dituangnya kopi sisa semalam
masih jua ia bertasbih
senyum mengenangi dia


Sebatilah alam yang dihirup
darah keringat
demi anak-anak


bisakah satu ketika
putera sulung menubah haluan?


tukang besi di bengkel kereta api
dialah ayahku
dialah pamanku
abang-abangku
itulah adik-adikku
tapi kalau kalian anak-anakku
kini, harus terdidik dari akademi tukang
yang tak lagi menjadi kuda tunggangan

 that's our so-called tukang besi hehe

Truth to be told, I've never recite a poem. Totally never on the stage for poem recitation before. Never ever. Like seriously. I've had this stage fright for standing on the stage, giving out speech. Let alone reciting a poem in front of the audience. *terror Hehe. Anyway, I gave my very best on that day. There were no forgetting lines like what I did on my Delta's KKJ.  *proud Thank God! Though it was difficult for me at the beginning during the rehearsal as I was not fluent enough in Malay language. I don't have the slang which I love to pick it up one day.  *finger crossed But I've managed to pull this through. Sad to say, we didn't win for that competition. However, the memories and experience for that night is absolutely fantastic enough for me to treasure it dearly. *sweet

 that's our Father for that poem *amazed
