a chance to give

 

“Kenapa sih orang-orang mengataiku pelit? Padahal semua orang kan tahu kalau aku wafat nanti, aku akan memberikan semua yang aku punya pada yayasan sosial dan panti asuhan”, kata seorang kaya pada pelayannya.
“Why everyone said that I am stingy? They know that if I am death, I will give everything I have to the charities and orphanages,” said a wealthy man to his servant.

“Akan saya ceritakan fabel tentang ayam dan sapi”, jawab pelayannya.
“I will tell you a story of a chicken and a cow,” said the servant.

Sapi begitu populer, sedangkan sang ayam tidak sama sekali. Hal ini sangat mengherankan sang ayam.
A cow is famous, not the chicken. It makes the chicken confused.

“Orang-orang berkata begitu manis tentang kelemah-lembutan dan matamu yang begitu memancarkan penderitaan”, kata ayam pada sapi.
“People always talk about your kindness and your eyes which show some pains,” said the chicken to the cow.

“Mereka mengira kamu begitu murah hati, karena tiap hari kamu memberi mereka krim dan susu. Tapi bagaimana dengan aku? Aku memberikan semua yang aku punya. Aku memberikan daging ayam. Aku memberikan bulu-buluku. Bahkan mereka memasak dan membuat sup dengan kakiku untuk kaldu. Tidak ada yang seperti itu. Kenapa sih kok bisa begitu?”.
“They think you are very kind because you give them cream and milk. But what about me? I give everything I have. I give them meat, feathers, my legs for their broth. Why I am not as famous as you?”

“Apakah anda tahu apa jawaban sang sapi?”, kata pelayan.
“Do you know what the answer of the cow?”, asked the servant.

Sang sapi berkata, “Mungkin karena aku memberikannya sewaktu aku masih hidup.”
“Maybe because I give them what I have while I am still alive.”
