I am Indonesian, and I'm PROUD

I am Indonesian,
and i am proud to be Indonesian,

I was born here, in Indonesia, at the small city called Kediri,
I grew up in that city, engulfing the art of Javanese and I'm PROUD of it,
I also grew up later in Yogyakarta, learning many sorts of Javanese stuff,

Indonesian is my primary language, and I'm PROUD of it,
I learned English and Japanese too, but still, Indonesian is my primary language, along with Javanese as my mother language,
I might sometimes speak in English, using words or sentences in Japanese, or writing not in my beloved language here but i never have any intention to love any other language more than i love Indonesian,

my country is not perfect,
everyone knows that,
and maybe some people are looking down at us too,
but it doesn't matter for me,
I love my country, Indonesia, and I'm PROUD of it,

I might leave this country to continue my study abroad,
but for me, the place i will be working is only here, in Indonesia, and I'm PROUD of it,

you ask me why?
why am i PROUD of Indonesia?
well after all, this is my country,
this is the place where i grew up,
this is the place where people i love live,
this is the place where i am needed,
this is the place where it's me, along with the young generation, who have the ability to make it grow, to make it better,
not just ability, more to a duty, for me, for every young generation,

sometimes when idealism strikes me, finding no place to realize it in this country, i might be upset,
sometimes I am asking myself why should i born here, not in the more developed country,
but then again,
it's a fate,
and there has to be something i can do to develop this country,
when my idealism is going nowhere, maybe i can create a new way to make it real, one day,

nothing is impossible, though maybe nothing is always easy,
so does this country,
I am 23 years old right now, and i know already, i have the obligation to do something helpful for this country,
I, along with my generation,

I am PROUD to be Indonesian,
I never seriously regret for being born in this country,
this country needs me, as it needs my generation,
and all i can do is to do my best,
never give up,
and keep believing, that I, along with my generation, will be able to make this country better,

I am Enneagram type 7 with ENTP, highly imaginative, lots of flight of ideas, yield many hobbies and skills, and unsurprisingly extraordinary. Yes, why do people even bother to define themselves as ordinary while every soul is downright created as extraordinary? :p
