Tomorrow Triumphant

DECISION AND PRIDE
I come to you,
to your motherly
face,
to die with you
if it is your time to die,
to live with you
if it is your time to live.

Mother homeland,
magic pride
lifted
among the deepest waters
of the earth,
righteous gunpowder,
safeguard of life!

I como to you,
at your side
I place my fist,
my tear,
my dream,
because you are
the greatest pride
of my life,
the dawn
I always searched for
on the roads.

I come to you,
I come to fight with you,
because you defend us,
you are the voice,
the rebel youth,
the true heart of my life.
