SM Salim's Words Echo The Truth

 I received his song in a WhatsApp message, with the visual of Malaysia politicians. I listened the song over and over, breaking each sentence down, appreciating the imagery and "peribahasa". Beautiful piece with loads of insight on human life. Not many songs like this one in our world. Many are the songs of love and longing and madness in love. But this is a song for humanity to reflect. I will print both the actual lyrics in Malay and its translation in English, a quick translation that I may need to edit a couple of times in the future.

Do read the lyrics and be amazed by its poetry and insight. A special thank you to the late SM Salim.
