Perang dan Bangsa-Bangsa Kecil - Kahlil Gibran

PERANG DAN BANGSA-BANGSA KECIL
Karya: Kahlil Gibran

Suatu saat, di sebuah padang rumput yang tinggi, di mana domba dan anak-anaknya digembalakan, seekor elang sedang terbang memutar dan menatap anak domba dengan pandangan lapar. Dan saat ia akan turun dan memangsa incarannya, elang yang lain muncul dan terbang di atas anak domba dengan pandangan penuh minat. Lalu kedua elang itu mulai berkelahi dan memenuhi langit dengan teriakan mereka.

Dan si domba menengadah dengan terkesima. Ia berbalik ke arah anaknya dan berkata:

“Betapa anehnya, Anakku, bahwa dua burung yang terhormat ini harus saling menyerang. Tidakkah langit cukup luas untuk mereka berdua? Berdoalah, sayangku, berdoalah pada Tuhan agar kedamaian datang pada saudara-saudaramu yang bersayap.”

Dan anak domba berdoa dalam hati.

WAR AND SMALL NATIONS
By: Kahlil Gibran

Once, high above a pasture, where a sheep and a lamb were grazing, an eagle was circling and gazing hungrily down upon the lamb. And as he was about to descend and seize his prey, another eagle appeared and hovered above the sheep and her young with the same hungry intent. Then the two rivals began to fight filling the sky with their fierce cries.

The sheep looked up and was much astonished. She turned to the lamb and said:

“How strange, my child, that these two noble birds should attack one another. Is not the vast sky large enough for both of them? Pray, my little one, pray in your heart that God may make peace between your winged brothers.”

And the lamb prayed in his heart.
