May the universe
pour forth thy tears
cool those heartless
fall on parched lips
drench those empty souls
blow mighty, swift
wrap those angry bodies
make them warm
Sun, shine brilliant
blot out those cruel
fill their thoughts
Shine! glitter! blaze!
Blur their vision
Until they see
but a sea of change
sweeping the whole city
Susan Loone. Penang, Jul 9, 1.24am.
Note: Only a few hours away to the mighty rally. Jul 9 would be a wonderful day to remember, whatever the outcome. The world sits and watches. There would be 24 rallies in solidarity with Bersih 2.0 worldwide.
Instead of joining in the fun, PM Najib Razak has left the country in the hands of the IGP (police). To maintain order or to create chaos? One shall have to wait and see.
I just wish and pray that the police personnel, those who have families, friends, and those whose hearts are yet to be corrupted - may see the light. Perhaps, their hearts too are longing for change. I pray with all my heart and soul that someday our men and women in blue would stand on the side of the people.
I pray they would be merciful to the Bersih 2.0 protestors tomorrow.
This poem is a prayer that the Universe may pour forth the water of kindness and truthfulness into their hearts and soul. To open their minds and eyes, and to realise that they too are a part of the rakyat, and we are with them.
ps. We do pay for their salaries with our hard earned money!
Goodnight for now, and see you later :-)
