My name is Lela Idris. I am 12 years old and I come from Malaysia,
a small country situated in Southeast Asia. I'm submitting a poem about my home country.
The reason I wanted to write a poem, about my country, is because I like writing poems.
I hope this poem will help you understand how my home country looks, and I also hope you will publish it.
Sincerely, Lela Idris
Malaysia is my home country,
Where I live and play,
Shopping malls everywhere,
Where I spend my time all day.
Different cities everywhere,
Malaca, Perak, and Pinang,
Where visitors visit here and there,
Walking happily all day.
I have friends from different races,
Very friendly are they all,
Hindus, Muslims and Chinese,
All rolled into a ball.
The food there is so delicious,
Especially Chicken Leg,
I think it is very nutritious,
If you are lucky, you can have it everyday.
I always will be a part of Malaysia,
Like a flower that belongs to a tree,
I'll always be so happy,
As pleased as I can be.
