poem is about an old man who used to fight for the independence of the
country in his younger days. However, he is now weak and wheelchair-bound. He
is sad because the independence that he and his peers fought so hard for is
threatened by lies and injustices. Since the persona is old and weak, he can
no longer fight to protect the country's freedom. He therefore urges the
younger generation to unite and speak up so that peace, harmony and justice
of the country are upheld.
