Woman

Wanita

Saat lahir ditimang ibunya
Saat kecil wanita digendong ayahnya
Beranjak remaja wanita dipeluk kekasihnya
Kala dewasa wanita diikat getir hidupnya
Setelah menikah wanita diperlakukan istimewa,
Disiksa prianya


Woman

(18/09/2011)

For after born cradled by mom
As a little girl crying in daddy’s arm
Stepping teenage life hugged by love charm
Leapt into adult life, tied by sour-life’s clamp
Filling marriage’s diary with story of champ,
As the first place in beaten and cramped

    oh how awful. this poor woman - is it you? i hope not! beaten and cramped is no way to live - can i hope for a divorce? a murder? running away? great ending. sad, but poignant.

    Wonder what language your first one is Dinda. Your last line leaves me feeling sad, does this mean your positive first part has turned sour? Love how you take the reader through life's stages one line at a time. :) Lizzy

    Dear Dinda, thanks for the translation and for sharing this. I'm amazed how culture and tradition are different yet shape our world but violence against women seem to be universal. It must be pure torment for parents to give their young in marriage to someone who's abusive. Where is the love, I ask. We were not meant to live with abuse. Have a good week Dinda. God bless Love, Annalise
