To Jennifer Lawrence, the ‘Mockingjay’ in Hunger Games
The revolution is on
With time, victory might be ours
But then what is the price of this victory?
We might win, but the victory might be shallow
Where do we draw the line and retreat?
When do we lay down our arms and surrender to the powers that be?
For how long shall we continue to watch them spill the blood
of our brothers and sisters who fight for freedom, justice and change?
What happens if we lay down our arms and surrender?
Shall I who once led the liberators now command heinous abductors?
Do the freedom fighters deserve to be imprisoned
for their crime of seeking freedom?
Indeed, we march on; fighting for what we believe in
With the mocking jay as our emblem, we mock the powers that be
With one blow we spill blood and lose blood at the same time
More ours than theirs
But like the phoenix, we shall rise from the ashes
Kotoko; wukum apem a apem b3ba
Cut one head of the hydra and two grows in its place
We are locked in a cycle of violence.
