Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise. Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room. Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise. Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries. Does my haughtiness offend you?

‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard. You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,

Perempuan Rugi

24/4/2013

Aku tahu jika aku memilih untuk bersama kau
Aku akan jadi perempuan yang paling bahagia di dunia
Aku akan sentiasa rasa disayangi
Aku akan sentiasa rasa dimanja-manja
Aku akan sentiasa mengukir senyuman
Aku akan sentiasa ketawa riang

Senang cerita
Kalau aku pilih untuk bersama dengan kau
Aku lah perempuan yang paling bertuah

Tapi Sayang,
Hati aku tak pernah berhenti dari rindu si dia
Jadi Sayang
Biarlah aku jadi perempuan yang paling rugi dalam dunia demi si dia.

Beku

Eh! Lelaki Beku.
Mari dekat.
Aku mau curahkan lava panas dalam hati kau
Aku mau cucuhkan besi panas dalam jiwa kau
Biar lebur segala yang beku
Supaya kau tahu
Supaya kau sedar
Betapa bernanahnya hati aku
Menampung rindu pada seorang
Manusia beku seperti kau.
