If We Must Die

If we must die, let it not be like hogs
Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,
while round us bark the mad and hungry dogs,
Making their mock at our accursed lot.
If we must die, O let us nobly die,
So that our precious blood may not be shed
In vain; then even the monsters we defy
Shall be constrained to honour us though dead!
O kinsmen!we must meet the common foe!
Though far outnumbered let us show us brave,
And for their thousand blows deal one deathblow!
What though before us lies the open grave?
Like men weŽll face the murderous, cowardly pack,
Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!

If we live in this time in the RIGHT..there is know death,those that see the truth are the truth, those that want to kill,..Iman say they are dead already,Cuz the life that you take can not be repayed in a prayer,and iman know that 360 come no matter what they do.they are the walking dead,INI is the light of the universe...them can't KILL GOD.....r-22

one heart full of love the wind
