don’t you dare close your eyes
if you can, hide your smile
n’ just cry, for your motherland

don’t you run or try to hide
if you can, fight the lies
n’ just try, for your motherland

don’t you dare give up on life
enjoy your life while you’re alive
stand up high, for you motherland

she’ll help you stay alive
she’ll help you free your mind
she’ll help you
she’s your motherland

don’t hesitate to speak your mind
your’re her hope, don’t let her down
n’ just try, for your motherland

if you can lend her a hand
n’ dedicate her all your life
she’s your pride, she’s your motherland


I’m an engineer and an educator. In 2012, I co-founded Karkhana, an education company that designs learning experiences for middle school students. I play guitar and enjoy writing both computer programs and my own songs. I also like illustrating my friends as South Park cartoon characters using Inkscape.
