it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry, indonesian

I read this anthology when I was in junior high; and New Order government was gripping our country with iron hands. But these poems, written by Taufik Ismail during the chaotic days in 1966 - and are a good reminiscence of them, made me decide that I have to keep on helping the poor people out there. We don't have the New Order anymore, but the people in need are still out there in their shabby clothes and shanty houses, waiting for a change. Waiting for justice.
The language is simple, but deep and touching at the same time.
