Give me liberty or death, I shall accept nothing less.
I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man.

The oppression and injustice were unbearable
The want for revenge was evadable

They cried and they wept but they found no mercy
As to who committed these crimes there is no controversy

So they cried out freedom in peace and benevolence
Yet their enemy responded with lies and violence

Their souls battered and their bodies spent
They knew the regime would never repent

So what emerged from the ruthless butchers?
A legendary band of selfless defectors

To protect their people an oath was sworn
And a thus an national army was to form

Be proud again of Syria’s army you may
For they called themselves the FSA


They killed, they raped. The nation’s dignity undone
They have no right, they have no shame. The backlash has begun

Freedom was cursed and its demanders thrown in jail
But the people’s will shall always prevail

They shall never see their land again
For they have already been condemned

Condemned of murder and torture
Found guilty of bloodshed and slaughter

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this is my people's willpower and their determination. My people are being slain everyday in the streets while the world watches idly yet they do not bow down to a ruthless dictator. Our want for freedom is what inspired me to write this and I hope it inspires you to at least acknowledge Syria's greatness and heroism.
