Happy Merdeka Day

Jutting out like a teardrop of continent Asia
Peninsula Malaysia lies sheltered
in the embrace of
massive islands of Indonesia, Borneo.

Malaysia – the peninsula and
the Sabah/Sarawak chip of Borneo
shaped into a nation 60 years ago
with promise of being truly Asia.
May the promise live on unfettered

Happy Merdeka Day to all Malaysians.
