#Tanahairku by K.I.S

SMILE by K.I.S Malaysia



The KIS crew took about 4 tiring days to finish this graffiti using about a hundred cans of
Montana Gold. During the project we are really looking deeper in ourselves in finding the meaning of Merdeka to us. It was not an easy task but Usman Awang's poem 'Tanah air' helped inspired us during the thinking process and this idea was the result of it.

The poem goes:

Engkau Tanah Air
pemilik perut yang berbudi
penampung hujan penyedut sinar mentari
lahirlah anakmu dari semaian petani
Engkau Ibu Murni
dengan jasa abadi
berdetik didenyut nafas kami
kerna kita satu sama dipunyai
Telah kau rasa
segala seperti kami
dalam ngeri perang dadamu dibongkar besi
di mana-mana wajahmu tak pernah mati
Tapi begitu
sejarah hidup zaman berzaman
pernah merangkul pahlawan kemerdekaan
mereka sujud dalam kaku
mohon perlindungan
Bukankah dengan
kasih dan harapan
kau tenggelamkan mereka dalam dakapan
di mana bunga ganti nisan bertaburan
Negara baru
di atas rongga jantungmu
akan tertegak bertapak dalam kebebasan
cinta antara kita wahyu dari Tuhan.
-Usman Awang
