YOU CAN KILL A BLIND MAN NEVER HIS VISION

YOU CAN KILL A BLIND MAN NEVER HIS VISION

 

Dedicated to Asmelash Woldeselassie

 

the late Asmelash Woldeselassie

 

They told us you were trying to escape

From those savages, who massacre and rape

 

They told us you refused to obey and cooperate

It was breaking news because they were so desperate

 

For them you were an enemy, a fugitive and a rebel

They were scared to face you and frightened to tackle

They shot and killed you then bragged and thrill

 

You gave your two eyes fighting for your people

As your vision was too much for enemies to handle

They came for your life second time trying

Your arms gave away while supposed to be dying

 

This time was unlucky you fought not to survive

When the vultures came to take you handcuffed and live

But you are not a coward hard you must have fought

Only took your body not your vision or thought

 

You lost your eyes fighting the Derg’s army

lost your limb during Esayas bombing Mekele the Tigray’s number one enemy

 

then came Abiy, that you hosted with open arm

He betrayed Tigray’s people he caused so much harm

We are crying and screaming we have no idea how to calm

 

We admire your bravery Asmelash ‘Aba Nefso’

you gave your life for new Tigray we promise we shall do so

 

We shall narrate your bravery and write your history

The sacrifice that you payed for emerging Tigray’s glory

 

Oh our hero Asmelash, only took your body in un ceremonious fashion

but they will never take your dream, your history or your vision

 

We salute you our hero we shall say to you good bye

We promise to fight to the end until we form a new Tigray!!

 

A Luta Continua
