Demosthenes, the statesman and symbol of oratory
Whose period of living before two thousand years
The great man of skill dedicated for his people
For the patriotism, defense, and for noblest causes

Demosthenes, whose verbal defense of speeches great
In terms of decency in words and actions,
Demosthenes, the man of wisdom, and humanity
Tried to save his country from intruders and enemies

Demosthenes, the ardent admirer of democracy at a time
when autocracy was prevalent in nations.
Still without fear he went forward,
with skill of wisdom and knowledge for the people.

Demosthenes the historical character of Greek history
The cradle of civilized world of the time
where eminent thinkers were lived and passed
He was the ever hero of oratory skills in history.

Thousands of years had passed after his demise
Still he has a place in human history of struggles
The struggle through peaceful speeches and knowledge
The oratory skills he tried to awake the people.

Words and speeches can make wonderful changes
which can make the world in perfect harmony and peace
The world we live is to be changed for peace
A perfect place of friendship and without enmity
Surely Demosthenes like orators must come forward.
