A Man Under The Coconut Tree
I leaned my back against the coconut tree
I saw the birds flying over the air
The wind blew softly
Made the nature so comfort to me
The coconut tree was so robust
The wind sometimes shook it
In a silence I saw hundreds coconut trees around
My heart was soaring up the sky with a smile
“I will take those stars, Dad,” once my little son said.
“I’ll take them for you,” I replied.
“No. I wanna go there. I wanna fly like bird.”
I was smiling at him hopelessly.
Once he was crying
Asking me to fly over the sky
“My friend told me he was flying by plane,” he said while crying.
“Why don’t you make it?”
My job is climbing coconut trees
That’s the only job I do
I can make enough money
Just for the daily meal, My son.
I am dreaming one day
He can fly over the sky
And travel some countries
Do not climb the coconut trees
I sacrifice the whole of my life
Without you, I am nothing
Life is you
I will climb many more coconut trees
I will do it
I am sure you will live a better life
I will struggle for it
