Unbind The Chains
Unbind the Barisan Nasional Chains
We’re all born the same, unfettered by preconceived limitations. Eventually, we submit to laws. There are those we must embrace in order to be free . . . the laws of hard work and discipline. Then there are those we must challenge for that very same freedom . . . the laws of conformity and small-mindedness. The weight of these Barisan Nasional chains can be so subtle, we forget them. This is how we are shackled, tamed. Normalcy becomes the rule and we grow comfortable with limits. Like a dog at the end of a Barisan Nasional leash, we move but never of our own will.
It is time to defy, time to rise, time to change is NOW . . .
We will test our mettle, pull hard against these restraints and together we can achieve more than what we can possibly do on our own. We will not let conventional thinking rule us. As we live here in Sarawak, the Barisan Nasional chain will bury deep into our flesh, the weight will pull us and our future generations down. But we must fight. We will defy Barisan Nasional. If we fall now, we will get right back up. Friends, life is short and every minute that passes hurtles us closer to the end. In the time that we have, we must bind ourselves to this cause that’s far greater than ourselves and the cause bind into us – these words are the contract that bind us to our future generations . . . Upon it, I have signed by name in blood, sweat and tears – to unbind our future generations from the chains of Barisan Nasional.
