July 20, bloody Wednesday

The day we dared to dare

Buried our differences

Wore the armor

In brevity and dignity

With warnings plenty

Risks too numerous

And the heavens without rain

Fighting for freedom

In post-colonial struggles

Against ruthless villains

Craving for power

For the sake of gain

Tired of broken promises

And frustrated hopes

Fed up with corruption

And budding dictatorship

For a brighter future

Only that my child would see it

To bask in its sunshine

And pride in its beauty

As it struck this anniversary

Honoring those of brave heart

Who stood the grounds

When cowards trembled

And showed the cleavage of foot

Who plunged the jaws of death

At broken spear and raging beast

And so died a noble course

Unselfishly for you and me

For us is to guard this legacy

And nurture this freedom

That they died not in vain
