“How impassive are the roots of your throne?
Do they not rattle, with ruth, as tears are shed?
Know that, cruel tyrants can be overthrown.
Know that, nothing is ever subdued by dread.
Know that, many behemoth’s have been slain.
Know that, silence is an omen of a storm.
Know that, parched eyes can not cry when in pain.
Know that an ember, at heart, still blazes warm.
Love of freedom overcomes every hate,
Sincere hearts are hardest to manipulate.
A spring has come for flowers to spring forth.
A day will come when oppressed retaliate.
Do not be astounded by revolt’s wrath,
For doom is decreed as an oppressor’s fate.”
