Oppression and freedom



When the spark of revolution ignited
The hope for independence lighted
The fighters we always remember
Who had a heart of ember

The people flee on the path of thorns
Slogans for motherland echoed around

Country divided, friends united
Nations cried, humanity benighted
Wave of sorrow engulfed happiness
Pushed people into utter darkness

The unsung heroes are now lost
Humanity has suffered a lot
Emergence of a benevolent bond
The one which lasts centuries long

Remembering the lion-hearts
As the dawn conceals the dark
The fighters we always mourn
Who never let our country down
Whose blood welcomed the morn
