Be brave , Ukraine!

So what does it mean to be brave ?
and to stand firm , resisting the urge to cave ..

countless have set out to make their mark ,
but life is tough, and sometimes really stark …

and there are many among us who’d rather bite than bark ,
sticking to your beliefs is no walk in the park …

if making the right choice means an early grave,
then that path, would you still be willing to pave ?

will you cower in fear ,like a helpless slave ,
or will you fight for the ideals that you are trying to save ?

to find your answers , you may need to embark,
on an endless quest ,which only you can remark …

if all you see around is the hand of the dark ,
will you be the one to ignite the spark ?
