What is the beauty of fighting in any war without blows and counter-blows?
Bearing the deepest wound with the biggest smile,
with the rampaging radiance,
a valor never sheds tears
but only shoots out the fiery embers…
Where is that light of life that hasn’t died out?
Someday I will arrive at the jaws of end,
still in the course of duty,
I am willing to attain the martyrdom,
Everyone loves living with joy
But if I swerve from the responsibilities . . .
Won’t life castigate me?
He is dead,
Whose glory is dead; set forth for every crusade,
I am; outcome would be victory anyway…
Living with dignity, earth would praise me,
Dying for honor, earth would embrace me…
I am the warrior; Triumph is in blood in sweat, and in tears.
