I Am Grieving

Posted in Malaysia, Personal, Reflections at 12:43 am by egalitaria

   Forgive my momentary pessimism. Today I am grieving the nation, but yet it is in deep mourning that I know is buried the desire for light to brandish itself anew.

Last night at the candlelight prayer vigil, we were asked to write prayers on the wall. And to say a word that came to mind. Some were hopeful. My word was “shadows”…

In shadows Malaysia waits

For redemptive light,

In shadows Malaysia longs

For what is right.

It groans and struggles.

All of its pains

To birth justice, peace,

Restoration again.

Your presence we desire

As we fight this good fight.
