PALEMBANG, GESAHKITA COM—-The top policies in the circle that surrounds the capitalists In 2004, also became the portrait of the South Sumatran poet Amanda Maida Lamhati through his poems, BREAK YOUR STONE.

The symbol of the universe, Fir Azwar, the real name of Amanda Maida Lamhati, cites the Diction of the Sun as a form of power and rulership in the circle of policy makers in the year in which she wrote the poem.

The sun stabbed the knife again

It shows how the line and choice of words were stabbed very powerfully, it was felt in the object that was the target of the stab that the message of the powerlessness and weakness of society became a picture and a scene for the poet at that time.

Historical records of environmental incidents where there were tears mingling with the enthusiasm of environmental activists which were very strong From the closeness and observations of the poet writer (Fir Azwar) in this area.

Besides, it was enough to record a tragic incidents  for the South Sumatran Environmental and Ecological Fighters to this day as to be a reminder.

That there was a bitter incident in the souls of the rural people who lost their livelihood when their paddy fields were evicted and their fields were evicted and have not returned even though the investmen Policy on land reform policy has been existed already.

Fir describes two contradictory parables between the top and the bottom , namely the heavens, sky and the earth and the effects that are among them.

Crying is not interpreted by Fir as ” Losing ” but from the context that he displays in his poetry it is ” Fight ” And fight on behalf of the earth and the people who need land for a living.
Cry out loud
Cry for your God
Cry for your mother
Cry for your father
Cry for your son

Land disputes and problems are still a big agenda for the fighters for Agrarian Reform Justice, and the threat of ecological disasters also remains in the spotlight and warns activists and environmental activists in this area.

That is sufficient evidence that BREAK YOUR STONE is the choice of a series of poems to be read at the Ecological Poetry reading in Commemoration of World Environment Day a few days ago at the Amanda Maida Lamhati Literature Studio.

Fir realizes that in the struggle there will be tears, there will be many sacrifices that the hard struggle for the people’s land also requires a strategy of tactical maturity and a logical approach that there is a picture of the need for thinking that is strategic and political.

As seeing in “Break the rock that hangs over the head” is as the closing of this poem.

BREAK YOUR STONE
By Amanda Maida Lamhati

The sun stabbed the knife again
The sky is crying
wet
her tears flooded the grass,
asphalt and red soil
The one who hoards the swamp
Come on in!
Come into the house
Cry out loud
Cry for your God
Cry for your mother
Cry for your father
Cry for your son
Break the rock that suffocates the chest
The sun is back stabbing the knife
The sky is sobbing
Poems lost for words
Empty
Scattered in his temple
Come on in!
Come into the house
Cry out loud
Cry for the earth
who lost their green
Cry for the animals
who lost their forest
Cry for the land
who lost the river
Make a fist.
Break the rock hanging over your head.
