Poem National Day Malaysia
A poem from Malar Harris titled Yearning for a Better Malaysia on the occasion of National Day
We dream of a beautiful Malaysia
Clear skies, Clean waters,
Pleasant greenery, fresh air
People happily living together
We dream of a safer Malaysia
Free from crime and ugly corruption
Enjoying mother nature with freedom`
A vision attained by wisdom
We dream of a peaceful Malaysia
People endowed with civil rights
Feeling secure trusting each other
Sharing with love and care
We dream of a united Malaysia
Respecting one another accepting differences
Enjoying the contrasting diversity
Embracing moral values with maturity
We dream of a Malaysia in harmony
People indulging in good activities
Innovative and enlightened moving forward
Meeting others’ needs not being self-centered
We dream of a well governed Malaysia
Strong, brave and righteous leaders
Wisely overcoming various plights
Without knife, gun and bomb fights
Hoping that our dream will come true
With God leading, we the crew
If Malaysians are standing together
To make our beautiful country BETTER.
