Today, the Day of Destiny

You never walk alon

 

In bated breath the nation awaits

Spots of yellows begin to emerge

Soon congregate into pockets then into seas

Yellow tides surged towards Merdeka in defiant intent

Arms in arms, step by step unwavering towards walls of blue

Unafraid, intent to move forward towards destiny

 

Shouts of aggression are met with deafening silence

Shoves of perspex shields on willing bodies

Shots of canisters only to well up innocent tears

 

Swings of truncheons meeting willing heads

Pain, blood and tears but no retaliations

Like sheep off to sacrificial slaughter

 

No fear, no hatred only surreal peace and calm

Why? To what end? Foolishness?

No! To answer the summon of destiny
