I Am Libya
I am Libya.
I am the free Libyan sons,
strong, loyal, and revolutionary.
I am the free Libyan daughters,
independent, empowered, and proud.
I am the university students,
eager and bright.
I am the elders,
kind and revered.
I am the Libya of the tribes and their heritage.
I am the Libya of the cities and their prosperity.
I am the Libya of art, music, and literature
of modernity, industry, and innovation.
I am the Libya where no voice falls on deaf ears
and all people have the power of Kings and Queens.
I am the jeweled crown
of beautiful queen Africa.
I am green, fertile Libya
producing crops in former arid desert.
I am strong-willed and refuse to be exploited.
I am the Libya of Muammar al-Gaddafi.
