WHERE DO I STAND?

Mafazah Sharafuddin

As a world implores,
and another lends a hand.
I begin to really wonder,
where do I stand?

In the midst of silent war,
I'm a simpleton indeed.
What is just one person,
when they kill in creeds?

Surrounded by bloodshed,
that I cannot understand.
I begin to really wonder,
where do I stand?

An illusion of salvation
and a reality of pain.
The world now gone,
won't ever be the same again!

A person raises his voice,
gets the anti-nationalist brand!
I begin to really wonder,
where do I stand?

The height of discrimination,
that leaves mouths agape!
Rendering them to think
that suicide's the only escape.

If those who kill are
really patriots to their land,
I begin to really wonder,
where do I stand...?
