Such a One
Any son or daughter who conquers fear,
and chooses to be free,
is thereby powerful.
Naked, weaponless, blessed,
armed only with humanity,
mighty indeed is such a One.
An inspiration to mankind is such a One.
Tyrants instill fear and hopelessness,
hunger after submission,
try to destroy such a One.
Tyrants know deep in their shriveled soul,
at most they can kill,
but never vanquish such a One.
Tyrants tremble before such a One!
Sons and daughters of humanity in chains,
believe freedom is external,
wait to be handed freedom.
Tyranny will dissolve disintegrate die
on the day we realize,
freedom is a decision.
And we become such a One … and One … and One!
