Story Of An Oyster

Tiram  pinggir pasir, so excited! Karena ada pasir laut berwarna putih | terhempas ke dalam tubuhnya

It was only a grain | but it gave him great pain | for oysters have feelings

Memanglah hanya butiran kecil sja | tetapi. Sang Tiram merasa kesakitan

For oysters have feelings | dan rasa sakit itu, datang terus menerus

Although they’re so plain|Now, did he berate | the harsh workings of fate|That had brought him|to such a deplorable state?

tetapi, adakah kerang yg keskitan itu | berteriak, menjerit..dan menyalahkan takdirnya?

“No,” he said to himself|As he lay on a shell | since I cannot remove ot | I shall try to improve it

Jawabnya sang Tiram “Tidak” | karena aku tak mampu mengeluarkn pasir | maka aku bertahan | dan membuat pasir itu menjdi sesuatu yg berguna

Now the years have rolled around | as the years always do

And he came to his ultimate | destiny…stew | and the small grain of sand | that had bothered him so

Was a beautiful pearl | all rich aglow | now the tale has a moral | for isn’t it grand

What an oyster can do | with a morsel of sand | what couldn’t we do ?? This the final of #StoryOfAnOyster

Andai sja Tiram tahu | mungkin ia akan tersenyum | mengetahui. Pasir yg menyakitinya saat itu | telah berubah mjdi mutiara

Berkilauan indahnya | sang kerang telah mampu mengubah kesulitan | dari brnda kecil yg menyakitinya | menjadi sesuatu yg indah pada akhirnya

Ya. Begitulah. Aku pun sedang mencoba aplikasikan. Jatuh-bangun dan tebing kejayaan, pasti pahit. PERJUANGAN itu PAHIT, karena SURGA itu MANIS.
