The (hidden) power of Kabyar

Kabyar is animate

But [it’s life is] not just a [fleeting] morn

Kabyar is a weapon

But not for destroying the world

Kabyar is key

For liberation and independence

But not devoid of principles [and morals]

Kabyar has power

Hidden but efficient & effective

Like sharp-pointed spear-head

Can thrust into [the heart of] a power-maniac

Cause trembling, shivering, throbbing & anguished pain

Poem in Burmese by Tekkatho Moe War (Saya U Moe Aung)
