how much authority,
intelligence, wealth, or courage
do you have?
with the competence you possess,
liberate the people.
if you are ignorant,
or seeking for something
to get benefitted from disunity,
the death of the country
is what you’ll get as your ration.

My feeble attempt on translating this poem by Maung Thein Zaw (မောင်သိန်းဇော်) from the latest anthology of his poems.
