Damaged Good

Pernah liat tanda "Damaged Good" di box nyempil paling belakang di toko atau departement store? "Barang Cacat" kira-kira bahasa indonesia nya. Gak perduli cacat SEDIKIT atau KEBANGETAN. Damaged Good is DAMAGED. Walaupun sudah di marked down alias di sale, tidak semua orang bisa melihat nya dengan semestinya.
Kebanyakan orang sudah skeptis sama segala sesuatu yang di beri label Damaged Good. It becomes worthless. Unwanted. Even for free. Banyak yang merasa terhina kalau dapat lungsuran barang tapi udah DAMAGED. "Yang udah cacat gini sih gue juga bisa beli sendiri!"
But my sister, she's someone who always can see the good in DAMAGED GOOD. She's a treasure hunter. As she always told me "Someone else's garbage could be other people treasure, Ina."
Aku biasa nya mangut-mangut sok ngerti. Sampai akhirnya aku menyadari aku pun si Damaged Good itu...
There's no shine on me anymore, I am broken in many places, I am damaged in any way possible.
.........
.........
IT'S WHAT HAVE MADE ME. My damages, my lies, my big mouth, my stupidity, my flaws. Those what mold me into this Damaged Good: Someone else's garbage, hopefully there's someone who will see me as treasure. Since no one can turn back the time. Undo what have been done. So it's absof**king-lutely dead end to me, to hope for people to see me as a "brand new-shining-have to have" kind of goods.
Cause I'm on the back isle of a shop, in a box with a big sign "DAMAGED GOOD".
