when the ground shook,
when the sky turned pitch black from the black smoke from the guns and bombs,
when the river turned red with blood,
when the air smelled of death,
when houses burn,when women and children cry,
they can only think of home.

when nothing was heard but the sound of guns and screams,
they can only think of home,
the clear blue skies,
the wide ocean,the green grass,
the sounds of laughter fill their minds.

the soldiers are afraid,
the look on their faces betray their attempt to conceal it ,
they are afraid of death,
afraid of never being able to see their families, friends,
afraid of never being able to return home.

but their courage outweigh their fear,
their determination to win this war,to emerge victorious,
to make their country proud, no matter the price,
they may be afraid of death,
but the are comforted by the fact,
that they are serving their country,
their fatherland,
they are dying for a noble cause,defending their country,
freeing their beloved country from the oppressors,
liberating the people from being slaves on their own soil.

together they sang the national anthem,
singing it loudly, ignoring the sound of explosions,
as they sing, tears swell in their eyes,
not tears of fear,
but tears of determination,
tears of deliverence,
as their voice grew louder,their spirits sore, like an eagle in the sky.

they took one last look around them,
one last prayer, one last chat with their friends,
they do not know what is to become of them,
that is up to God,
they may die, they may live,
that is not known,but one thing is for certain,
if they do die in this war,on this battlefield,
it would be a glorious one,
a death for a greater cause,
deep down they know their death will not be in vain,
their death will inspire others to defend their beloved country.

they took a moment to have one last thought of home,
faces of their loved ones,as they do so, a smile formed on their lips.
their leader gave one last word of encouragement,he did not fail to inspire them,
to give them strength,they admire him for his spirit and determination,
they are glad to fight beside him.

finally, the time came,
it is the time they have been waiting for,
time to make their country proud,to make their families proud,
their leader gave his command to charge, and so they charge without a second thought,
charging into the fog of smoke,
into the unknown, facing death,
and they regret nothing.

Post Physics and EST stress!

i strive for my country, my people,
i hope that one day,
we will be strong, fearless,
never to be colonized again,
no longer looked down upon.

i pray that when our flag flies high,
people would look up in pride and say,"that's the Jalur Gemilang!"
never in fear nor shame

i dream that one day, we can unite,
as one,
one nation, one voice, one pride,
under the magnificent colours of the 'Stripes of Glory'
hand in hand,
we stand as one.

no! this is not a dream!,
it can happen,
it should happen,
it will happen.

stand up all malaysians!
i call upon thee!
stand up for thy country!
thy blood! thy fatherland!

prepare to defend our land,
our soil, our home,
let thy blood flow down to the ground,
to the Rajang river!
to the straits of Melaka!

let thy life end in the battlefield,
on the front lines,
with honour and pride,
than to live and see a foreign flag dominating our clear blue skies,
to live under a shadow of fear,
to be oppressed once more.

defend thy country!
to the last drop of blood,
to the last shout of MERDEKA!

never forget my comrades,
my brothers and sisters,
my people,
we were once colonized for centuries,
once made slaves on our own soil,
once reduced to mere servants.

remember!remember my friends!
let us not forget our past,
let us not repeat our ancestor's mistakes,
let us not be tempted by wealth and power,
blinded by lust and greed,
to the point where we sell our honour, our pride, our souls!
no more!

my friends!
now is our time!
our time to show the world,
to lead them,
to stand tall and proud,
on the world stage,
to remind them, who we are!
to remind them,
we are strong, we are united, we are one!

and let us not forget,
the famous cry of freedom,
the famous declaration of liberation,
