At least 490 protesters, including 68 children have been killed during the Iran´s latest unrest in the last three months, according to the Human Rights Activists' News Agency (HRANA).


TO ESCAPE OR TO DIE

To stay means

To accept death.

 

To go means

To accept being away

Forever, with home longing

With longing for your loved ones.

 

You must choose

To stay and to sell yourself

To stay and suffer every day

Suffering for seeing and hearing

That others get into prison and being executed

 

You must choose

To stay and watch a nation goes under

To stay and see people who because of

Hunger lie and betray.

 

To stay and see girls, instead of going to school

Working hard from morning to evening for

Getting a piece of bread for their families.

 

To stay and see

Young children who instead of going to school

Walk up and down the streets and sell

Themselves for some money.

 

You must choose

To stay and suffer your whole life

Or to stay and accept death.

 

You must choose

To go and to be free

To go and live the life

And to experience the beauty of life.

 

You must choose

To stay and fight

You must choose to

Stay and not die

You must choose

To escape and fight

 

You must choose the fight, not the escape.

You must choose to fight and not to die.

You must choose to fight and to live.
