“LIBERATION”

(Dedicated to all those seeking freedom)

By: Ranbir Singh Sekhon – a Vietnam Veteran, US Army

Liberation, liberation, I do pray

Liberty, liberty, come my way

You are fountain of hope, beacon of ray

In your absence there is no hope to live or play

Without you terror reign and oppression prevails

Your path is of obstacles and hard to pace

Your price is too steep, only the brave can pay

Liberation, liberation, I do pray

Liberty, liberty, come my way

Liberty without you there is sorrow

Mothers  sob, as sons are whisked away

Helpless, they can only pray

Without you there is darkness

Only glow from pyre of those, whisked away

Our minds are numbed, tongues locked

We cannot speak or wish to say

Is this not slavery, what would you say?

Liberty you are bloodthirsty, listen to what people say

Is this the price for freedom must we pay?

Liberation, liberation, I do pray

Liberty, Liberty, come my way

Liberty the brave will claim you,

Bring you home to stay

With you shall come freedom

The oppressor chased away

Darkness will fade and sorrow will be gone

Hope will then throne the foundation

The sacrifice the brave have made

Prayers will be there, Bells shall than ring

Thanking those who brought this day

Festive winds will blow

Singing the ballads of the brave

Those gone in pursuit of freedom

Will be enshrined forever here to stay

Liberty at last there will be tomorrow

For the children to grow and play

Liberation, liberation, I do pray

Liberty, Liberty, come my way
