My psyche's torn apart,
Obliterated by fear,
Murky thoughts intrude my mind,
Slithering into vacant spaces.

Lucidity is but an empty coffin,
Twenty-one nails sunk in deep,
Ignorant souls weep the loss,
Paying homage to a fictional conviction.

Scowl at the truth,
Gaze fearfully in my realm of solitude,
Scoffing at my menace,
Your ominous eyes killed me in distress.

Stabbed for my beliefs,
Mauled for my honesty,
The blood stained floor,
Defined my savage villainy.

.....or maybe yours.

The Holy Jest

Torn testaments taint the solemn truth,
Probably fades away into a sinful rite,
Greed so dense it shatters all ruth,
Commend those who live out of spite.

Blessed is the one that professes his faith,
His faith that is built on a sea of deception,
Condemned is the one that admits his blemish,
His blemish that is now his old reflection.

Define me for I seek to know,
The ways I am sinister for an innocent demurral,
Define me for I seek to forget,
The ways I'm unwanted in this holy cathedral.

Serene Vitality

Leave while you can,
When the fields flaunt the numbing silence,
Run when you can,
Before time release the raging insurgence.

Hide where you can,
Away from the intense recurrence,
Fight if you can,
Knowing resentment is worthy of riddance.

Hope that you can,
Throw away the trace of reluctance,
Love because you can,
Feed the heart of a partial resistance.

MERDEKA!!!!!!! Favourite 20 Malaysian Songs!

So, as a kid, every 31st of August was a big day for me. I would get ready for 12 o'clock to wish Malaysia (and everyone) Happy Merdeka. As silly as that sounds, I really liked the fact that we actually celebrated our country's freedom and it really amazed me. I remember watching the parade and wanting to be somewhat a part of it. You can imagine as time goes on how that spirit died. Nevertheless, we are celebrating our 56th year of independence and as a tribute, I'm going to do what I do best, making a list of my favourite songs. Oh, just so you know, since I was born till right up to 2007 I was a hardcore listener to Malaysian songs due to my mum and basically my family's interest in Malay songs. Sadly, I feel there was a huge decline in quality to Malaysian music ever since 2007. Anyway, here is my 20 favourites. Happy Merdeka!!!

1. Alhamdullilah by Too Phat feat Yasin
2. Fantasia Bulan Madu by Search
3. Isabella by Search
4. Gerimis Mengundang by Slam
5. Marabahaya by Pop Shuvit
6. Butakah Cinta by Spring
7. Suci Dalam Debu by Iklim
8. Kongsi by Joe Flizzow
9. Keroncong Untuk Ana by M. Nasir
10. Mungkin by Anuar Zain
11. Jangan Lafazkan by KRU
12. Situasi by Bunkface
13. Tekad by Hazami
14. Operator The Line Is Dead by Jason Lo
