The Sun is About To Rise!

By Akol Miyen Kuol

The sun is about to rise,
Despite some attempts by the enemies,
Of the light,
To prolong the night.

SOUTH SUDAN SHALL RISE AGAIN

By Akol Miyen Kuol

We shall rise again,
South Sudan will rise again.

My country will not disintegrate again,
The Republic of South Sudan will rise again.

We will not allow our long and bloody struggle to go in vain,
We will not allow the sacrifices of our freedom fighters to go in vain.

We will not allow our homeland to disintegrate again,
South Sudan will stand on its feet once again.

This senseless and meaningless war is a shame,
We will stop this blame game.

Never, never and never shall we allow our homeland to disintegrate again,
South Sudanese will collectively stand on their feet once again.

Justice, peace and freedom will prevail in our beloved homeland once again,
South Sudanese will reunite, become strong and collectively move forward once again.

We will not allow our homeland to disintegrate once again,
Our nation and great people will rise again.
