36th days, after some armed men from Sulu archipelago
spotted in Tandu Wau, Lahad Datu.
This caused the bloodshed between Muslim brethren.
I am still monitoring the sad stories happened to our new recorded history.
If this conflict cannot be resolved today
what more the coming days that will pass by our way?
I am always optimistic that any problems shall have its solutions
but if the parties will lead to apply it.
It is very hard to live where someone doubts everyone
and everyone doubts anyone.
It is hard to live in an open cage; you know you can fly,
but you have no able wings to fly.
I am praying to the lord Allah
to find ways of solving the misery
that both people of Sulu and Sabah are feeling right now.
The remnants of colonisers continued to divide us.
We are all victims. There must be no hatred spark among.
We must be vigilant; there might be any other agent
to hand us instruments for us to play the music
and they are going to dance.
Allah has all the wisdom,
He is the only grantor of peace had we wish!
Ya Allah please help to Let Us All Save Peace.
