Our Hope

Our Hope
By Allan CF Goh

The dark clouds may threaten,
Seemingly for eternity.
But after the rain,
The rainbow will appear,
Radiant with colours,
Alive with hope.

The darkness may stretch
Endlessly into the night,
A tarry mass of fright.
But dawn will surely come,
Bringing along the sun-bright,
To dispel the shifting shadows.

So must any rotten regime,
Bloated with corruptions,
Inert with inefficiency,
Accepted decreasingly,
Must sink into oblivion,
Into history’s waste bin.

The wind of change is blowing,
From within people’s soul,
Fresh with gentle hopes,
Full of quiet longings,
Seeking meaningful expressions,
For a better tomorrow.

This general election,
Though fraught with dark threats,
Brings forth that opportunity
For the rainbow arch,
And the sun’s radiance,
To enrich our lives.

For this coming election,
All citizens of good conscience,
Must come out to vote,
With utmost wisdom,
For our country’s future,
For our national salvation.

For our children’s,
And their children’s sake,
Let not this regime sack
Their tender dreams,
And hallowed ambitions,
Into the racist void.

Come this election,
Citizens can realize their dreams,
By voting in righteousness,
And integrity.
Sweep out the corruptions.
Demolish the racism.

Let us wake up to a new morn,
Where the nation is in harmony,
Thriving in meaningful pursuits,
To the best of our potential.
Let the nation grow in peace.
Let us celebrate a true nation.

This election must ensure
A government of the people,
Working for the people,
In tune with the nation,
Marching to a shared future.
Let’s make our hope come true.
