I Marched On

Crushed by WII
Brutal arms of Japan
Father in prison
Brother in heaven
But I marched on

Crushed by Korean War
Brutal arms of North
Goodbye, Father
See you in heaven
But I marched on

Crushed by hunger
Refugee in an island
Fish swam all around
No net to catch 
But I marched on

Penniless in America
Land of abundance
Thirsty and hungry
To climb a mountain top
But I marched on

Yes, I was crushed
By wars
By hunger
By penniless

But I have marched on
Knowing
I have peace in my heart
I have freedom in my heart
I have gold mine in my heart
Nothing can touch them
