I promise you Charlie

     I’ll not let them silence me

No fear or threat will dry my ink

No muzzle will stop my words

The audacious free thinker won’t kneel



Freedom won’t stop to rain over us

Guns won’t stop ideas or dreams

Fools are those who devote their lives to violence,

to hate and murder



My world was built by those who looked into king’s eyes

Those who saw the fascism embodied in swastika

Those who face tyrants

And fear nothing.



The bold made my world

A world that cherish freedom

A world that saw far to many evils 

Evils that could not be fought with guns only  



I hold dear to me words

Liberté, Fraternité, Igualité

They are more than words

They are the foundations of the western world

I’ll hold my brother’s hand

Be him or her a muslim, a jew, a Christian,

White or black, different or identical

I hold his hand today and tomorrow



I walk with my brother

Through the streets paved by great man and women

People who called themselves freedom fighters and run on a bus

Names like Churchill, Kennedy, Lincoln, M. Luther King will walk with us



No threat will stop me from walking on the street

From criticize, from use my clothes, from thinking

From laugh and from praying

I believe that is my inalienable right to do all that



They are no the first ones trying to silence us

I’ll never be silenced 

Today and tomorrow, I promise

I’ll stand up with my pen and ink to fight



Charlie you taught me once more

How great my world is

And that my freedom is not to be taken for granted

And how important it is that I remain vigilant
