say "YES" quickly

Say Yes Quickly
Forget your life. Say God is Great. Get up.
You think you know what time it is. It's time to pray.
You've carved so many little figurines, too many.
Don't knock on any random door like a beggar.
Reach your long hands out to another door, beyond where
you go on the street, the street
where everyone says, "How are you?"
and no one says How aren't you?

Tomorrow you'll see what you've broken and torn tonight,
thrashing in the dark. Inside you
there's an artist you don't know about.
He's not interested in how things look different in moonlight.

If you are here unfaithfully with us,
you're causing terrible damage.
If you've opened your loving to God's love,
you're helping people you don't know
and have never seen.

Is what I say true? Say Yes quickly,
if you know, if you've known it
from before the beginning of the universe....

  1. nice..
    sapa orang yang translate puisi ni?

  2. versi dari Coleman Barks, diterjermah asal daripada A.J Arberry @ Arthur John Arberry.. pakar pengkaji islam yang bukan islam....


    Puisi menyedarkan aku yang mana kita x perlu terlampau mengampu org atasan @ client untuk dpatkan sesuatu... Lebih mulia dan bermakna jika kita mengampu dan berbuat baik dgn "Yang Lebih Atasan" tapi harus pantas dan bersabar.

    P.S: ang perasan x 2 simbol tu, kenal x???
