By Alwi Jantan
Do I see a rainbow in the sky
With droves of birds flying by?
Do I see lush greenery
Flora and fauna of sheer beauty?
Do I see rich traditions
From ancient civilisations?
Do I see children playing together
Of various races and gender?
Do I see a true democracy
With freedom of speech and assembly?
Do I see honest leaders
The nation’s burden on their shoulders?
Do I see neither corruption
Nor radical race and religion?
Do I see high integrity
No abuse of power and authority?
Do I see great prosperity
People living in peace and harmony?
Do I see a progressive nation
The love and pride of everyone?
This is only my dream, my friend.
But I’ll dream to the very end.
