Agam…. You, the strong boy
Though left behind by mother, father, and all friends who used to protect and enjoy wild life together in your past…. In the beautiful past….
Now even only your name I can remember. Your weak body slowly gave up and sincerely let the soul travel back to the Source. Tears fall and fall and still fall, Agam….
Agam, this ode flows with my tears singing about your happy nature, your painful heart for being separated from your beloved, your tired physical for struggling alone. Adam, my dear boy…. you have been loved and will always be loved after you left us….
Agam, send my best regards to the next life across the border. Someday we’ll meet and greet each other. You are saved from longer pain….
For not loving you enough, for not taking good action, for being so selfish….
Sing now, Agam. Cuddle to your mother. Be happy, the real happy!
- Agam is a baby elephant surviving after his mother was poisoned to death in Aceh, Indonesia. Agam fell into a well and helped by people but his leg was broken and because of mistreatment he died. Was he abused? I can’t tell. I just want to tap Readers’ awareness about other fellow creatures. They exist not to be abused, they exist to be loved — show your affection, take action how little it is would not waste.
My heart is so broken that I have no gut to see Agam’s picture especially the last one when he was in great pain before leaving….
