For centuries I also had to die
in distant lands not knowing why
for the first time I gave my life not feeling sore
for I gave it here for my own in a war
thus the sultan’s fief tilled for ages with my hand
has now become for me a
motherland

From the poem “
A Postwar Epic”  by Bülent Ecevit, Former Prime Minister of Turkey
