The World has defiled us!

We lived innocent…

lives!

But now this mirage forces us to

shut our…

eyes!

Arise, my people!

Know Dark and Light!

For in this world,

you have only heard beautiful…

lies.

They have removed from us our language,

maruded our land!

Corrupted our culture

with a pretty

package of deception…

all we received

for our corroboration

was an act of repression.

So we became vindictive,

but their guns

filled us

with a

formidable

trepidation.

I beg of you

To show your bright glow,

Take care, take care

And remember:

We can no longer

Be apprehensive,

Although these,

Our days,

Look somber.

We must be steadfast,

Hold fast to our

Creed,

For no longer may we

Dissemble,

Perpetuation we cease

To seek-

We fight to end these

Useless cycles.

So show again your light

Sprits,

My People,

Open again your eyes…


Why fear the pace of running

When you know that you can

Fly?
