Sweat on the forehead
            of a soldier singing on
Love for the ultimate freedom
On a big field where glory shines...
 
The President promises education
The minister signs,
 
The queen is unfaithful
Generals seduce young officers,
 
Tables are set for the occasion;
 
Tonight every decision
Can be made or broken
This evening stands guard
Minutes surrender for
The wrong who will say
What the weak must obey...
 The farmer plows his rainless field
The politician strangles common for
A bloody right.
 
Hey,
 
We are custodians of god's choice
We are the followers of a higher cause
We are servants of faith...
 
We fight to live
We believe in one
We are the mass
We pray for peace
We are followers of
Divinity...
 
We never give in...
 
Leaders of the world
Do u want sense
Are u sure you
Make a difference?

Shams Monower is a poet
