Lost Generation, Reverse Poem

Hampir mirip seperti postingan sebelumnya yang berjudul “Dualisme Dalam Sudut Pandang Pemikiran (‘Aku Peduli’)”, setelah saya browsing, ternyata banyak jenis video serupa. Dan ternyata jenis puisi tersebut adalah “reverse poem” atau puisi kebalikan, hehehhe….baru tau saya kalau ada jenis puisi seperti itu (harap maklum, saya tidak punya backgound sastra….hohohoo).

Dari beberapa reverse poem yang saya temukan di youtube, kebanyakan reverse poem tersebut dibuat dalam bahasa inggris. Dan dari semua yang aku liat, video di bawah ini adalah salah satu yang menurut saya bagus (tentu aja selain ‘Aku Peduli’, yang notabene bikinan anak bangsa sendiri…hehehe), monggo silakan disimak.

Biar lebih jelas lagi, ni saya kali lyric sajaknya, monggo silakan disimak

i am part of a lost generation
and i refuse to believe that
I can change the world
I realize this may be a sock but
"Happiness come from whitin"
is a lie, and
"Money will make me happy"
So in 30 years I will tell my childhren
they are not the most important thing in my life.
My employer will know that
I have my priorities straight because
work
is more important that
family
I tell you this
Once upon a time
Families stayed together
but this will not be true in my era
This is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
30 years from now, I'll be celebrating the 10th anniversary
of my divorce
I do not concede that
I will live in a country of my own making
In the future
Environmental destruction will be the norm
No longer can it be said that
My peers and I care about this earth
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It is foolish to presume that
There is hope.

And all of this will come true unless we choose to reverse it.

Nah, sekarang mari kita balik

There is hope.
It is foolish to presume that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It will be evident that
My peers and I care about this earth
No longer can it be said that
Environmental destruction will be the norm
In the future
I will live in a country of my own making
I do not concede that
of my divorce
30 years from now, I'll be celebrating the 10th anniversary
Experts tell me
This is a quick fix society
but this will not be true in my era
Families stayed together
Once upon a time
I tell you this
family
is more important that
work
I have my priorities straight because
My employer will know that
they are not the most important thing in my life.
So in 30 years I will tell my childhren
"Money will make me happy"
is a lie, and
"Happiness come from whitin"
I realize this may be a sock but
I can change the world
and i refuse to believe that
i am part of a lost generation
