Me…(Aku) a tribute to Chairil Anwar (1922-1949)

If this is it
Then so shall it be
Such is final.

Leave it as it is.

I am but a swine
Cast out by my own.

Even in the heat of pain
I will regroup and fight.

The slash of swords I will withstand
Withstand.

Until such time as it is no more.

And then, who cares
I want to live.

This fine Indonesian poet died the year I was born.
Most of his work was censored.
