"Terkadang hal-hal sederhana seperti senyuman,sapaan 'halo' itu jauh lebih baik daripada "idealisme-idealisme rohani" yang orientasinya adalah diri sendiri,punya maksud-maksud tertentu,tanpa/minim kasih dan yang tidak pernah di aplikasikan sehingga orang lain bosan & muak mendengarnya"

Roots & Wings

Roots & Wings
It has been said that the two most important things we can offer our
children are roots to grow and wings to fly

If I could give you many things,
I'd give you gold and silver rings
Of knowledge that I've gained with years
The gift of smiling through the tears 

Confidence, courage, determination,
Laughter and spirit and love of creation,
Wrapped up in a box
With a bow, I'd give
To you these gifts to keep for as long as you live. 


"If I could give you just two things,
One would be Roots, the other, Wings." 
Roots, not to tie you to the ground,
But to guide you to where your fulfillment is found

The nourishing start, the firm foundation,
The source of your inner determination.
Wings to soar over obstacles, wings to fly free,
Wings to glide to the heights of the best you can be.
And when obstacles loom, from your Roots grows a hand
Providing a strong, sturdy, safe place to land. 

I'd choose these two things for the gifts that are best,
For with Roots and with Wings, you'll find all the rest!
