Delimited by the ocean, in its immense vastness
Copious to acquire
Value laden oceans and rivers
Unravel its treasures and re‐live its pleasures
Oceans and rivers, a link to our ancestry
The basis of our identity
The essence of our heritage
The core of our existence
Modernization reveals the wretched reality
Oceans and rivers, such distinctiveness
Yet blatant ignorance
Oceans here and oceans there,
Why oceans in our agenda seem to disappear?
Pacific humanity exists with the existence of oceans
Dependent on oceans and rivers
When do we take a stand?
Rekindle our hope, can we?
Educating younger generation on oceans and rivers
Will definitely give us a future to keep
