This poem was read out at a solidarity vigil for the people on the boats organised by Penang Stop Human Trafficking Campaign at the Penang Esplanade on 22 May 2015.

Bumi ini Bumi Allah

Seluruh isinya milik Allah

Kamipun diciptakan oleh Allah

Untuk memalumkan bumi Ciptaannya

Di Negeri ku kami Miskin

Hidup terseksa tanpa Perlindungan

Di atas laut hidup kami terkatung-katung

Menanti huluran tangan Sang RaJa Dermawan

Tangisan anak kecil Menyayat hati

Menahan lapar dan titisan air

Sejuk panas badan tak tenaga lagi

Kerana Semua kita biasa lalui

Wahai Sang Dermawan yang bergelumang Harta

Wahai Sang Raja yang hidup Merdeka

Berikan kami perlindungan dan tempat berteduh

Di negeri Allah yang kaya raya ini
