"My Usual Raya" by Aisya Bte Abu Bakar 2B/20

I look out the window to see

The lampu lap-lip (colourful blinking lights) shining ever so brightly

My favourite lagu raya (hari raya songs) playing loudly in the background

While my nenek (grandma) is in the kitchen

Baking kueh with my aunties

The kids are outside playing with their sparklers

Nothing can compare to this

Suasana Hari Raya (hari raya atmosphere)

Now I’m staring at my front door waiting for the bell to ring

But to no avail

When can I experience

My usual raya (short form for hari raya) again?

(because of covid ...very sad)
