Painted Perfectly

Imagine a beautiful painting with color diversity

Neglect differences, they combined perfectly

The brush keep etching,

Eager to show their eternal beauty

Realize that we are those colors

Forever side by side, life with a variety of religions and beliefs

Among these vary, we stand in the name of humanity

Integrated, tied, face the intolerance and enmity

Together we share cultural and social values

Harmonizing delightfully from the richness

How? How is Cathedral and Istiqlal standing bravely?

Around the city, they speak for reality

Respect each others colors will be the key

Maintaining solidarity, maintaining harmony

Once we are together, is there anyone brighter?

No, we don't want to compete, but we one painted beautifully 

You and I, youth and adults are the composer of this beauty in diversity
