THE TRUE GUERILLAS

THE TRUE GUERILLAS
© Farouk Asvat

The true guerillas stayed at home
They confronted each new day
as if it was a new lease on life
They confronted each new death
as if it was a new way of life
They confronted each new morning
as if it was a new invitation to death
They confronted each new night
as if it was a new way of death

The true freedom fighters stayed at home
They confronted each new day
as if they were attending their own wedding
as if they were witnessing their own birth
as if they were attending their own funeral
as if they were walking with their own angel of death

The true insurgents stayed at home
They went to bed each night
as if they were sleeping with a deadly lover
They went to sleep each night
as if they were in love with death

The true revolutionaries stayed at home
They confronted each new death
as if it was a new way of life
