The Independence Day Poem by Jawad Al Harake


Today, I will proudly speak
Of how Lebanese reached the peak
And of how their leaders made the way
And changed history through Independence Day

In past, Lebanon was under France's control
The latter would order and Lebanon would obey the call
There was no real and total independence
'Decisions should be immediately taken hence'

Our leaders weren't satisfied with the situation
And took rebellion into consideration
Having an inner will and great great determination
Pushed them forward and provided them with motivation

Shouting out loud they asked for their freedom and rights
Lebanese folks went into streets demanding with all their might
To be free and independent once and for all
At last, after their rage exploded, they triumphantly achieved their goal

Since then, Lebanon enjoyed the sweet taste of being independent
With the French leaders' orders being to their nation sent
But still, that doesn't meant that French aren't welcome
For Lebanon is a country for all and not for some

So, let's rejoice this momentous date
By showing Lebanon our loyalty and joy great
And by letting unity be our only leader
And love and faith our only feeders
