The passion in me /Bara di dalam diriku

Bara di dalam diriku (The passion in me): terse verses by azly rahman

(from the verses "A Passion in Me"
translated by Pauline Fan)

usah menggodaku dengan wang
atau kemasyhuran
atau kemuliaan
... atau untuk menentukan kehidupan orang lain
dalam permainan politik
ketandusan falsafah

aku cuma mahukan sebuah taman
dan perpustakaan yang selesa
atau sekali-sekala sebuah gua
untuk merenungkan kedalaman makna hidup
dan misteri yang ada di dalam diriku

taman penuh
kehidupan
harapan
cinta
itu sahajalah yang aku perlukan

dan masa seketika untuk menulis
cerita
dan kenangan-kenangan
dan soneta
dan puisi
dan untuk berkongsi kasih sayang
dengan sesama manusia

untuk meraikan
kesemarakan
semangat abadi
dalam diriku - ar

PUISI TAMAN WALDEN III

FROM THE ORIGINAL

THE PASSION in ME

tempt me not with money
or fame
or glory
... or to dictate the lives of others
in the game of politics
devoid of philosophy

all i need is a garden
and a cozy library
or an occasional cave
to reflect upon life's profundity
and that mystery within me

a garden of
life
hope
love
is all i need

and a time to write
stories
and memories
and sonnets
and poetry
and to share love
with humanity

to celebrate
the undying flame
of passion
in me – ar
