ARTWORK
The long road is immeasurable, harboring plenty of colorful love stories in sacred arrangements of numbers. 65 is no different from a ghost hiding in the darkness, dangling in every prejudice, sneaking in nightmares, shocking in every stillness, penetrating fogs of fear, feeding hatred for the sake of capital flows. And it is dry season throughout the year, poisonous, turbid water flowing to low places, dissolving in jars of democracy, from where everyone drinks it, brews it with spices of love, religion, morals, and Pancasila... in a big house called the country. The greatness of your soul is unspeakable, your responsibilities are indissoluble, you are strong protecting all the people. Without exception!!
