    "A revolutionary is a professional, so you must be a professional revolutionary."

    Resist

    I may - if you wish - lose my livelihood
    I may sell my shirt and bed,
    I may work as a stonecutter,
    A street sweeper, a porter.
    I may clean your stores
    Or rummage your garbage for food.
    I may lay down hungry,
    O enemy of the Sun,
    But I shall not compromise
    And to the last pulse in my veins
    I shall resist.

    You may take the last strip of my land,
    Feed my youth to prison cells.
    You may plunder my heritage,
    You may burn my books, my poems
    Or feed my flesh to the dogs.
    You may spread a web of terror
    On the roofs of my village,
    O Enemy of the Sun,
    But I shall not compromise
    And to the last pulse in my veins
    I shall resist.
