The Saddening eyes

She sits on the corner With balck holes inside her eyes There are storms and darkness But nobody knows it hurts
People smile, people cheer But in a second of closing eyes They took what they want And they pass, and they go Like a shadow in senseless
She sleeps in the silence Although it is a daylight today Although it was a gloomy yesterday Even a crack will not awake her
She writes on the morning dew But not even close to a word She writes on the dust beside but the wind always blows it up
The day will come again someday When you reach to high and others are behind They need and they come They leave and they go away They see, but they pass They smile but to behind
They talk but on backstage They stab but in front your eyes No one could tell what it means No one understand what it is for

Status Yang Sering Disalahartikan Dalam Berbahasa Inggris

Yo, readers,  hari ini Penulis akan berbagi pengetahuan sederhana, sangat simple, kecil dan bahkan sering dilupakan orang. Pernah dong melihat Curriculum Vitae atau formulir dalam bahasa Inggris. Nah, kalo melihat kolom bagian status, pasti di awang2 kepala ada 4, yaitu single, married, divorced, widow/widower. Nah, kalo single itu belum menikah toh, kalo married sudah menikah, sekarang apa bedanya status "divorced" dan "widow/widower"?? Bukankah widow/widower adalah hasil dari divorced?  Kalo dalam konsep budaya Indonesia, yang namanya janda (widow) ataupun duda (widower) bisa saja karena ditinggal pasangan (meninggal) atau diceraikan toh? But readers, dalam budaya Barat, kedua konsep ini berbeda. "divorced" adalah status yang didapatkan karena bercerai dengan pasangan. Sedangkan widow/widower adalah status karena ditinggal pasangan yang meninggal, dan pasangan yang ditinggalkan tidak menikah lagi.
Sekian infonya, semoga bermanfaat~
