Tak ada kesedihan yang sia-sia
Waktu akan mengumpulkan pecahan-pecahannya
untuk menyusun kebahagianmu suatu ketika

Kesedihan bisa digunakan
untuk menggarisbawahi kebahagiaan

Setiap orang akan menyeduh kesedihan
dan kebahagiaanya di secangkir teh atau kopi
dan meminum airmatanya sendiri

Sebuah puisi tentang Kesedihan,

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen" - Elisabeth Kubler
What makes a person beautiful? Untukku pribadi, the beautiful one comes from the strongest one. Biarlah hargai kesubjektivitasan ini. Being strong is to love someone in silent, to radiate happiness when we are unhappy, to stay calm in moments of despair, to show joy when we don't feel it, to smile when you want to cry, to make someone happy when our own heart is broken, to be silent when we feel like screaming our anguish, to comfort when we need to be comforted, to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down. From coal into diamonds. I have one of those people in my life, she is my mother. She doesn't buy me fancy things but she teaches me how to endeavor in this mad world with kindness, sweat, and hope. I love and respect her a lot, and I wanna make her proud and happy. Jadi, jangan patah semangat dulu ya, walaupun realita sungguh terlihat suram. Ingatlah ibu kita yang terus berjuang.. 
Keep strong!
