The Light Seeker
Because my country is in darkness
I must shine light upon it
and I must steal light from below,
steal burning fire from the likes of hell.
I will finish this quest even if it takes my life.
I do not care if I disappear or die:
the sun, light, and everything
belongs to us;
The apple trees, grass, and flowers
We have fought and planted seeds
to make great trees for this planet.
This very earth is ours;
The wisdom and memories
belong to us forever.
