Iran 40 years after 1979 Revolution

Feb. 10- Iran 40 years after 1979 Revolution:

 

For 40 years, a nation is under torture

Her body is bruised, her heart is aching, her eyes are wet with tears

It’s been 40 years that her lands and skies have been painted with blood

Cages have been raised, birds enchained, and daggers readied

 

40 years, the struggle of life with death and decay

40 years of blades and gallows and death squads

 

Every year, smiles were erased from faces

How many of our youth they killed in prisons

How many lives were emptied of hope

How many mothers, fathers died mourning for lost children

 

40 years, the struggle of life with death and decay

40 years of blades and gallows and death squads

But Iran has stood firm and has not given in

This will is fighting on and is winning

 

It’s been ages that the cities are filled with cries

The axes fear the blossoms, scythes fear the flowers

The streets are filled with a rebellious spirit

And the bloodthirsty executioners are afraid of this spirit

 

40 years, the struggle of life with death and decay

40 years of blades and gallows and death squads

But Iran has stood firm and has not given in

This will is fighting on and is winning

Know that it will win

Know that it will win
