I will not leave my land

Updated: Mar 20, 2022

I am a Woman. I have an 8-year-old child, a son.

Before him and God, I'll be liable where I have been.

He needs to feel what matters. We are in Kyiv. We're helping out in the bomb shelters, roadblocks, field kitchens.

We will not leave our land. This is our home. Its children protect the land,

organize defence, first-aid posts, navigation. I can't leave. I had the opportunities, but I'm not going anywhere. I won't leave them.

I will not leave my land, I will not leave my heart, because I can’t escape it.

They are the light and hope. We are the light and hope. There are millions of us.

Even if we perish, we will rise from the seeds as a forest. Ukraine is, Ukraine will always be. Ukraine, the Mother. We ARE it.

Ukrainian Text by Katya Chilly, singer. Translated into English by Ukrainianvancouver team – Mar 05, 2022
