Poem | Obituary

How long has the obituary filled our media pages?

A wife killed her husband and children

then burn their death bodies

A husband killed his wife

when she slept

A family killed their relatives

for a reason that I don’t know

some are jealousy

some are poverty

some are depressed

Is the world being too dangerous for living?

Is life being too cruel?

Maybe I mistranslated the meaning of love

Maybe I mistranslated the meaning of joy

But, I’m right if I translate it as the death of humanity

Yogyakarta, September 3rd, 2019-05.49 a.m. -RIP humanity-
