My Singapore, My Hearth, My Home

A blend of two worlds,
Mix of city and suburb,
Sprawling with tourists.

Five stars arising,
A crescent moon endorsing,
Red and white unite.

A tiny country,
On its own--- Independent,
Gallant, strong and free.

Living in justice,
Four races in harmony,
Walking hand in hand.

A broth of beauty,
Yes, this is my Singapore,
Yes, my hearth, my home.

    Please don't expect much, since this is coming from a 12+ year old. :)

    The age of the poet is not often the question, but the maturity with which the poem was written- and this sings of it.
