31st Aug 1957 a new nation was born
Malaysians have all come together
Celebrating a country they can call "our own"
And a place that they can also call home.
There were joy in their faces
Whether black, yellow, red or brown
It didnt really matter
Cos it was the freedom and unity that counts.
53 years have passed
Prosperity and harmony have come a long journey
Sad to see that 'racism' is also stepping in
Slowly hijacking the glory and peace of our country.
Some say that this word is dirty
That it pollutes our mind and body
To me, it's also like poison
Gradually killing one country.
We might be yellow, brown, black or white
But we are all still the same
For it is the red blood that is flowing inside us
And that one heart that hold us all together.
So let's hold hands and love one another
For our children and a better future
Put an end to racism
And be as 1Forever.
