It is A Big World After All

It’s a big world after all

Too much eyes to count

Too many whispers to hear

And you will find mirror everywhere

Even after you were born

 

They will mock you when you didn’t brush your hair

They will mock you when you didn’t apply your makeup

They will laugh at you when you are fat

They will stare at you because you are not same with them

 

But this is the world, not a few minutes of prom

Open your eyes and it is not all about the mirror

Your eyeliner will not end the world hunger

Your 100$ lipstick will not end the shed of red blood

You will just impress their desire with your high heels

 

Look at the sky

Touch the stars

And watch their cries

Listen to their sad song

A song about how they survive the day from missiles

How women hide their eyes and being abused

How a little girl should married a man who 40 years older than her because their parents can’t feed her anymore

 

This is the real world, not a Disneyland where innocents will easily become a princess

This is the real world where makeup should not be the main attention

This is the real world where we should invent the better education

This is the real world where we should hug the poor not abuse them

This is the real world where the war should not be the only solution

 

Open your eyes

This is the big world after all

 

Dedicated to R.A. Kartini, one of the best women superhero in Indonesia and the world. Thank you for making the world better ‘place’ for women. Happy Kartini’s day.
