A shell


I used to be a clam
Living in my own luxurious shell
Treated very well
Getting what I like
Protected from enemies
Having a thousand hands around

Now I am a just a jelly-like-thing without my shell
So weak and fragile
Struggle for myself just by myself
Can not expect to be treated as I was in my shell anymore

Many obstacles I am facing
Many blood and tears have been generated
It is hurt
It is hard

However, I am perfectly sure
It would make me tough and strong
To face how rude the world is

As I am sure I can not live forever in my shell and become an egotist.

yap bener bgt, kita nggak bisa jadi orang egois yg hidup sendiri dengan dunianya

emang sih kadang2 kita perlu kesendirian untuk merenung dan introspeksi

met idul adha ya

Siapa bilang "jelly creature" itu fragile..?

They have the most sophisticated way to escape and defense...

Gak percaya..?..

Dinosaurus aja punah..sedangkan jellyfish, keong beserta teman-temannya masih bertahan...

Nah lho...???

(eh btw ini ttg siput khan...???)
