(Reflection) : Proud to Be 80-90s Generation


Maybe The 80-90s era was an unsafe era
When our voices were shut down
When our expressions were banned
When our political freedom was taboo

Maybe The 80-90s era was technologically boring
When we still had to call through public phone booth
When we still played game watch, Atari, Nintendo, Sega
When we still only had one TV channel with such boring programmes

Maybe The 80-90s era was sophisticatically dull
When we did not have any telephone cellulars
When we did not know what computer was
When we were even happy for having black white TV

But, we are proud to be the 80-90s generations
When we could play freely on the field
When we could play hide and seek without afraid
When we could play kites, monopoly, and various traditional games

But, we are proud to be the 80-90s generations
As we still called our friends with their father’s names
As we still shouted them for hanging out with us
As we still recognize who visited us only by their sandals

We do not have to get neck-ache because of seeing our smartphones
We do not have to get isolated from our closest friends coz of smart gadgets

Then, we love to be the 80-90s generations
Because we are the earliest users of personal computer
Because we are the earliest users of MIRC chat
Because we are the earliest users of internet

Then, we love to be the 80-90s generations
While our idols played naturally
While our favourite singers sang without any manipulation
While our rockstars were on their throne

Every generations is unique
But we love and proud to be the 80-90s generations
Along with Sting, Madonna, Bryan Adams, NKOTB etc etc
Along with God Bless, Nicky Astria, Anggun, and all Indonesian celebrities

So natural and no manipulations

We are part of your history.
