She’s just like Pandora.

Her curiosity is bigger than anything.

She’s just like Pandora.

Her jar of gift was closed.

She’s just like Pandora.

Her hand has led to open the jar.

She’s just like Pandora.

Her instinct has led to the very bottom.

She’s just like Pandora.

Her exercises to curiosity was automatic.

In which, there lay hope.

In which, the very bottom is unknown.

In which, the hope seemed to be invisible.

Is she just like Pandora,

when left hand and right one are strangers?

Is she just like Pandora,

when she denied that jar of gift?

Is she just like Pandora,

when she doesn’t know what has been searched?

Is she just like Pandora,

when she didn’t know the first time she opened the jar?

Is she just like Pandora,

when marriage is an abstract thing?

Take it fun, but never run.

Set it free, but never flee.

Let it fly, but never dry.

    Pandora or Isadora,
    Jamilah or Sutinah,
    Guess we can’t help the gift of curiosity,
    As it is actually a bless which enable us to learn about everything…

    Failure and success, tears and laughs, are what have shaped us to what and who we are now and the future.
    Depends on how we take lessons from each and every thing.

    Good luck!
