Bangkitkan Asa


Berlari kencang tetapi tak kunjung sampai ke tujuan

Bahkan terkadang menjauhinya

***

Memanjat sampai ke puncak tetapi tak ada yang tergapai

Bahkan yang di genggaman terbang tak berbekas

***

Berburu di hutan tetapi tak dapat satu pun binatang yang disasar

Malahan tersesat di belantara tak temui jalan kembali

***

Keruh hati dan pikirannya

Dikelilingi kawanan serigala buas

Yang tak kenal puas

Memangsa apa saja

Meneguk darahnya sampai kering

***

Sekawanan domba tak lagi beroleh rumput dan ilalang

Semua pucat pasi dan bulunya rontok satu-satu

Taktala diperah, darah yang menetes, bukan susu

***

Kapan nestapa bakal berakhir?

Sampai akal sehat dan nurani menyeruak kembali

Menyingkirkan “despotic leviathan”

Membawanya ke koridor sempit “shackled leviathan”

Hanya jika kekuatan tersisa terhimpun kembali.
