BERSIH - speak up

No true artist can live in a cacoon of an isolated inner world
for we are all have a need to create
and that is why we choose to exhibit.

Art is admired for its techniques, its expression, it's ideas. 
One night out with an artist she told me in the end it is the idea that counts. 

Working in the Art Gallery, there is a hunger to consume new ideas.

As artist be your medium paint, music, writing, the computer, film ...whatever it is,
we got to voice out.Under normal circumstances I'm not bothered by politics. I know some of you aren't Malaysians but repression is everwhere. I'm not asking you to start a revolution, just maybe come out once in a while and participate. 

Time to Voice out and may your voice be heard too. 

BERSIH - speak up

A voice that speaks louder
when all speak at the same time
Asking for a clean vote
Whats the big deal

Is there a fear and insecurity 
That they aren't going to win?
Well I thought the goverment
is supporting the people?
Or are we supporting them?

There is nothing
to be afraid of
if they are
where they are
When the people
"rakyat" has spoken

For too long
I have been a child
Listening to the fears and threats
Weeping as home is not HOME

We will go overseas to study/work
thinking that it is a greener life
and it is but you know your roots
Are here despite all the prejudices

You know what,
bring your teh tarik talk
to the Bersih roadshow and rally
We can all complain about the injustice
Only instead of sitting on our butts
We can walk and talk
Ok bring your mug of teh

BTW the whole
repeatition of
armageddon proportions 
May 13 is wearing thin. 
All these slurs 
Just shows fear
I wonder why
They are so worried

You can sweat it out,
Little technie that you are
All small bytes count 
Voice your disssatisfaction 
Spread the BERSIH around
Not like a virus
More like an anti-virus

Dance if you like to dance
and act it out
Do a cook out
Bring nourishments
Play the songs in your voice 
Make a mini festival
After all it can be
a street performance
Your stage will be as big
As many actors there are 

Capture this moment
join in or youtube it
After all history is made
by the people
the "rakyat"

So if you want to repost this
by all means go ahead
And tag as many as you like
In your FB note
