[Music Monday, Merdeka Edition] Warisan By Sudirman

This Sunday marked the 57th anniversary of the independence day for Malaysia. Persekutuan Tanah Melayu or Federation of Malaya, if you really want to be detailed like that.

Just like previous years, Merdeka celebration is always tied together with a theme. Interestingly, this year's theme - Malaysia, Disini Lahirnya Sebuah Cinta - is taken from a song called Warisan by the one and only Allahyarham Sudirman.

Now, I haven't listen to this song for a very long time but Amin (one half of, one of the most renowned local tech blog that focused on mobile segment; in case you want to know) pointed me to the song when I posted the theme song for this year's Merdeka celebration on my Facebook page.

Man, it hit me in the feels immediately. I myself can't really explain why but as soon as I listen to the song and pay attention to the words that the Sudirman sang, my eyes starting to feel watery...

Disini lahirnya sebuah cinta
Yang murni abadi sejati
Disini tersemai cita cita
Bercambah menjadi warisan

Andai ku terbuang tak diterima
Andai aku disingkirkan
Kemana harusku bawakan
Kemana harusku semaikan cinta ini

Betapa dibumi ini ku melangkah
Ke utara selatan timur dan barat
Ku jejaki

Aku bukanlah seorang perwira
Gagah menjunjung senjata
Namun hati rela berjuang
Walau dengan cara sendiri
Demi cinta ini

Ku ingin kotakan seribu janji
Sepanjang kedewasaan ini
Ku ingin sampaikan pesanan
Aku lah penyambung warisan

I simply have no idea why this song hit me in the feels so easily...I mean, while I certainly love this blessed place called Malaysia but I don't think my love amounts to anything as compared to those who actually out there that are working hard to make sure that the rest of us able to live as safe and as peaceful as possible.

I'm nothing, really. I'm just someone who got the opportunity to sit for hours in front of computer to type things to anyone that willing to read it. I'm just...nothing.

Then again, I don't know if anyone out there might have instructed ninjas with onions to be around me, waiting for me to listen to the song. That must be reason then. *sniff*
