ဘေလာ့လာၿပီး မေရးျဖစ္တာ ၂ ႏွစ္နီးပါးရွိသြားၿပီပဲ။ ေဖ့ဘုတ္ေတြေပၚလာၿပီးကတည္းက ဒီဘက္ကိုလွည့္မလာျဖစ္ဘူး။ ျပန္ေရးျဖစ္ေအာင္ လုပ္ရမယ္။ အဓိကကေတာ့ ကုိယ္စိတ္ဝင္စားတဲ့အေၾကာင္းအရာေတြကို ျပန္ၿပီးေရးခ်င္တယ္။ အဓိကကေတာ့ ဓာတ္ပံုႏွင့္ နည္းပညာသတင္းေတြကိုေပါ့။

ငါသာလွ်င္ေတာ္ သူမေတာ္ရ
လူေတာ္ထင္မွာ တို႔ျမန္မာကို

ၾကြားရင္းႏွင့္နစ္ ဝါးရင္းနစ္သည့္

အေကာင္းဆိုးထင္ ဆိုးေကာင္းထင္ႏွင့္
အထင္လြဲပါ တို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ ရမည္လည္း

သူ႔ကိုငါညွိဳး ငါ့သူညွိဳးႏွင့္
အညွိဳးႀကီးပါ တို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ ရမည္လည္း

ၿငီး၍မၿပီး ညဴမၿပီးဘူး
အၿပီးတကာ လုပ္ႏုိင္ပါမွ
ေတာ္ရာေရာက္လိမ့္ ေနာင္အဖို႔
ႏိုးၾကထၾကျမန္မာတို႔ သားေျမးတို႔အတြက္ ႀကိဳးပမ္းစို႔
