This poem is dedicated to the memory of Mustapha Kallon a.k.a. Babayara who died on March 7, 2011 and buried on March 8, 2011 at home in Daru, Kailahun District in the Eastern Province of Sierra Leone. A 40th day ceremony for the late Babayara was held in Kenema on May 8, 2011. Babayara could be remembered for his selfless sacrifice to the Sierra Leone Peoples Party.

Great warriors die
Great warriors arise

In the dark alleys of the grave
There is a tidal wave
To ride destiny's journey
Toward life's eternal destination
 
Where great warriors belong
Where great warriors come along
 
First it was Kanedaykah [Cain - day - Carr]
Now it is Babayara
 
The force of resistance
Has regrouped at destiny's joint
To celebrate life by death
 
...and Death by life
 
This journey belongs to the living
As it does to the dead
All that remains now is...
 
celebration, Celebration and celebration!
