"In commemoration to all those who defended my voice,
long before I could speak"...
I'll stand beside you.
Speak when you're too worn
when countries burden you
when history re-writes your legacy,
I will stand in your stead.
Lead those into unity
and while others turn and forget
I will always speak of your victories.
I will carry you
on my voice,
as my strength and my memory.
Though your politics, your leaders
And your own
I refuse to cover, turn my back on you.
One torch might burn in dark solitude
But if held high
It can spark the actions
