IF I HAD MY CHILD TO RAISE OVER AGAIN
If I had my child to raise over again,
I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I'd do less correcting, and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less, and know to care more.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I'd run through more fields, and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging, and less tugging.
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd teach less about the love of power,
And more about the power of love.

" I'd teach less about the love of power ... And more about the power of love"
Weeks after Pemilu 2009 for Legislative Member, I was watching the news of those Indonesian Politician busy doing coalition, no matter whether they used to be in opposite directions. Is it good or is it bad? Is it for the people or is it for themselves? Is it for the benefit of the people or is it just in the name of struggling for power?? Sorry to say it seems that they "love the power" more rather than "the power of love".
We're only the spectators.. yet at the time, our vote will determine who's going to lead the country.
I just wish they have the political maturity, to support each other no matter who will win the elections on next July.
