Malaysiakini Letter

On a cold day in hell

Anushka Anastasia Solomon  |  Published:  |  Modified:

On a cold day in hell, pada satu hari sejuk di neraka

I'll produce the poems, saya akan mewujudkan karya sajak/puisi dan pantun

From these raw elements, truth, daripada unsur-unsur asal ini, kebenaran

We will build a united nation, kami akan membangunkan negara bersatu

On a cold day in hell, pada satu hari sejuk di neraka

I'll believe the Malaysian Government, saya akan mempercayai Kerajaan M'sia From it's efforts, a national identity / daripada usha-usaha kerajaan, identiti nasional

We will birth a united nation, kami akan melahirkan perpaduan negara

On a cold day in hell, pada satu hari sejuk di neraka

I'll say good-bye America, saya akan mengucapkan selamat tinggal Amerika Syarikat

Soil the good name of the British/ the Japanese, memburukkan nama British/Jepun/

We will oppose internal threats/ kami akan menentang masaalah dalaman

On a cold day in hell, pada satu hari sejuk di neraka

I'll buy and sell the truth, Saya akan jual beli kebenaran

From these individual efforts, die, daripada usaha-usaha individu ini, mati

We will return the peace earth cannot give/ kami akan mengembalikan keamanan yang dunia tidak boleh memberi

On a cold day in hell, pada satu hari sejuk di neraka

I'll spill my blood on Tanah Melayu, tanah tumpahnya darah ku

From my own efforts try to save the land, daripada usha-usaha sendiri cuba menyelamatkan negara

We will fly the Malaysian flag/ Kami akan mengibarkan bendera Malaysia

At that time, pada ketika itu .

Anushka Anastasia Solomon is a poet in exile from Malaysia and author of 'Please, God, Don't Let Me Write Like A Woman'.
