War The Warrior Fought

(Popular Igbo war song;
Nzogbu nzogbu
Enyimba enyi
Nzogbu enyimba
Nzogbu Nwoke
Nzogbu Nwanyi
Enyimba enyi
Nzogbu enyimba)
(War song fades to background)
I search the past,
I scan the present,
I see human,
I see some frailties,
I see also conviction and courage.
(War song fades, silent interlude)
I wonder
If I would not fight
War the warrior fought,
Given same cause.
(War song continues, fades)
