The Egyptian Revolution

The revolution Everybody has a limit , a time when enough is enough You must fight for what you believe in ,even when the going gets tough In the cold 25th in the midst of Jan Stood every freedom fighting child , lady and man The tyrannic dictator thought that he would last He thought he could win this and end the revolution fast 30 years is along time , but everything must come to an end For your voice you must fight , for your honor you must defend 1 day passed , he thought everyone would leave But they stayed for day 2 , in that he did not believe On the third day of the revolt , there came a cavalry attack Camels , horses and donkeys to push the protestors back Many lost their lives but their memories lived on They lost their lives so the tyrants would be gone They were used as a symbol for inspiration They were used for hope in times of desperation The police attacked but did not succeed The people refused to fall to tyrannical greed After weeks the system started to crumble Patriotic chants would make the ground rumble Until that faithful february day When everyone listened to what the tyrants man had to say The tyrant gave up the rebels thought they won They thought it was over , they thought they were done But the country got worse the job is not yet complete The country is devastated and it's economy obsolete We must continue on the fight to make a better land We must no let this pass, we must all make a stand For every martyr who gave their lives Leaving behind their children and wives We owe it to them to make their dream come true To make Egypt better for me and for you We must work harder than ever to restore our country's pride We must bring happiness to all who have cried We must better ourselves and take pride in our nation To repair all of this devastation We are all Egyptians we must all unite We must push on and carry on the fight So it does not matter what happens to me We will not stop until Egypt is free
