The youth are rising up

The youth are rising up, they’ve had enough at last

They won’t accept this judgment, they won’t ignore the past

 

They were not there to fight but grew up with the tales

They feel the nation’s pride and know from where it hails

 

They see behind events the politics of trade,

They see their leaders wane and sense their glory fade

 

They didn’t feel the pain but they do feel the pride

They hear their language on – the lips of those who died

 

They want the justice now that so long was denied

in honor of their heroes and all the dreams that died

 

The youth are rising up, they’ve had enough at last

They won’t accept false judgments; they won’t repeat the past

One thought on “The youth are rising up

  1. It is a very inspirational poem. It reminds me of our martyrs who sacrificed their lives to give us freedom. They are our heroes and yes we have grown up hearing the tales of their heroic deeds. I do believe like you that one day our generation will rise up and raise voice against all the injustice which are prevailing in the society.
