Poem for May - No Ordinary Malay

Adam left Eve, the snake
and the rest of the apple
Adam left his Eden
to join the people
in their half abandoned garden
The people welcome him,
and will love him.

Adam left the impasse, to embrace
a new journey, Adam left his Eden
voluntarily, to join the people
in their halfway walk
The people walk by him,
and will never leave him.

Adam Adli is no ordinary
Malay.
