Dear past leaders,

If you were still alive…

I wonder what you’d say.
To the inconsideration, gone astray.
To the separation of our ways.
To the gone hopes of yesterday.
If you were still alive…
I wonder what you would do.
When they’ve gotten one, but want two.
When our greatest fears become true.
When suddenly you don’t know who’s who.
If you were still alive…
I wonder what you’d feel.
About the state of our ordeal.
About the many wounds that cannot heal.
About how we have been forced to kneel.
If you were still alive…
I wonder what you’d be.
In the midst of this decree.
In freedom’s lost key.
In the shadows of them and we.
If you were still alive…
To the unknown we shall dive.
And for justice I know you would strive.
And from the ashes, hope will revive.
But you are still alive.
In the knowledge you had to derive.
In the lessons we had to transcribe.
Till the end of time that will arive…
You will always be alive.
By,
Puteri Eleni, KL
