What you see as an ocean is an aquarium for me
What you see as sea is just a wavy serum for me
What you see as sun is a fire ball for me
What you see as stars are burning desires for me
What you see as tree is a stick for me
What you see as rose is blood for me
My insight orders me to revolt against a regime
My pledge is my dream to be free
Do you understand how I feel?
Do you care how I perceive?
Do you fret how I hold up to brutality?
I wonder what my soil will express if given the opportunity to speak
… Drops of blood fell on ground,
Cries of a mother,
Worries of a father,
Dismay of a nascent child,
With a silent scream to bring an end to a regime
