A Veteran’s Day Poem

posted November 11, 11:00 am on Artvoice Daily

AND THERE WERE THOSE, WHO NEVER SURRENDERED There were those who sacrificed everything for the freedom of this land They fought, resisted, declined what fate gave They persisted, had faith, they lifted the blanket of despair They made their own choice; to live, -FREEDOM- If that’s not possible; to die, paying the price for freedom They were willingly risking their lives, gambling to be free They were trying to make the impossible reality; to be free There were among them, the young, quickly turning into men There were the women, frail, but just as much as a man There was rejuvenation of the old, worn, tired men Together they became one, the best of fighting men   They’ve invited the world to watch, to see, to hear Freedom for us, Freedom for all is near Those of you with a mighty fist Show up now, at least in spirit, be in our midst Come help us and we will share, let you reap The benefits of freedom that our blood has sown Come help, show solidarity and make this revolt your very own If freedom is to be and it is to be It will have to be for both you and me I am ready to give back to God the most precious gift he has given to me My life, no matter how precious, is worthless if I am not free   And there were those, who never surrendered I want to be among those who this way will be remembered But if God keeps me alive and encourages me to continue to strive For a better world, where freedom shines, I’ll promise, I will fight I will dedicate everything to this noble cause, including my life So this promise is for those, who never surrendered I will remember you and respect you, I render It’s sad that you can’t be here The bells of freedom toll for all to hear   Not in all lands, not yet, not totally You will have some new faces, new friends for company In that internal brotherhood, in a heavenly nation Without limitation and discrimination Your council I seek for freedom’s re-distribution And when there will be no need to “NEVER SURRENDER” And still we cherish the memory of those not surrendered When we have freedom for all, here in all lands We might not wish to rush to join you since living is no longer hell And we can count on eternity to catch up with us, sooner or later   By Eugene Laszlo Hegedus Eugene László Hegedüs was a 17-year-old student in Győr, Hungary, when he had to escape in November 1956...
