This country is not perfect
Our politicians are not
Our planes sometimes fall off the sky
The weather’s humid, and now the haze is coming back
Groceries are getting expensive
And we could go on and on, complaining, bitching
But hey, we’re 59 today.
If you are 59 today, you could choose to say that you’re life’s not perfect
That your parents had never been
And your car breaks down too often.
Or you could say that you’re thankful for all that life has given you
And that you look forward to a fulfilling old age.
This country and this life is really yours for the taking
The choice is yours
Make it matter
Come on, get up, do something.
Stop bitching on Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter
Unless you’re in a position of power, you are not changing anything
You’re just stressing yourself and your ‘friends’
That’s not being apathetic, that’s being realistic
Stop complaining, start living.
The change starts with you. Yes you, that person in the mirror
Don’t stress about things that you can’t change
Make the most of this bumi yang dipijak
And langit yang dijunjung.
It is your duty to make the most of this life
You have only one life on this earth
And make the most of this country, it is your duty
In the end, there is only one Malaysia.
Selamat Hari Merdeka!
