Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

Verse 1
Hold on brother hold on
The road is long.
We’re on stony ground
But I’m strong. You ain’t heavy

Verse 2
Oh there’s a misspoken truth that lies
Colors don’t bind, oh no.
What do they know? They speak falsely.

Chorus
Here in my home
I’ll tell you what its all about
There’s just one hope here in my heart
One love undivided
That’s what it’s all about
Please won’t you fall in one by one by one with me?

Verse 3
Push back sister won’t you push back?
Love won’t wait.
Just keep pushing on.
Yes I’m strong. You ain’t heavy.

Verse 4
Oh don’t you worry about that…
What we have shadows can’t deny
Don’t you know it’s now or never?

This song takes a little getting used to ... but it grows on you especially after you have a look at the video ... and the tune does stick in your head :))

Although I am still trying to understand the context of the haphazard lyrics thrown together ... I am sure it's going to find it's place amongst many of us 'UNITY RAKYAT' Malaysians ...

I found it funny when I read was it Najib who said Bangsa Malaysia will only come about when we all stop looking at each other on racial and religious backgrounds ... and when we come together and all say I am Malaysian.

Damn it WTF do they think we've been harping on about??? How can we have a Bangsa Malaysia when all over us we see 'pro satu bangsa/agama' only???? hmmmm come on Najib, don't ya grab at straws now that BN is sorta drowning its own miscalculated policies and talk about Bangsa Malaysia - the ones with some peas for brains have been crying out loud for this since 1957 ... will I see it in my lifetime???

We want unity and equality amongst all races. As an Indian I got to first start by saying I am Indian and stop there ... not go on to future identify with one ethnic group. I'm always proud to say I am Malaysian and I am Indian .... but really I am truly Asia :)) - I have Indian, Sri Lankan and Chinese blood in my veins ... I am truly Asian and the epitome of what Malaysia is about ...

If only our politicians wouldn't jump on the unity bandwagon when it suits their agendas but truly sincerely believe in one Malaysia for all.

For now enjoy the song, enjoy the video and be proud we're Malaysian - you never know how bad it's out until you're out of Malaysia ... the politicians are crap, the policies even crappier!!! But in the individuals I have met, there is no place like home ... and Malaysia is the home where my heart is ....

May we all be proud Bangsa Malaysia .... further made stronger with our diverse cultures, religions and peoples!!!
