Forget not your liberty when you’re helpless
Like the god that lacks power for his revenge
Let courage cover you like the shell covers yolk
Forget not, every brutal wound will end up with scars!
Lose not your hope as the shepherd that lost his sheep
For the dark will always come before the new day
Let your faith be alive, allow it not to fade like the days
Forget not your liberty when you lose ability!
Never blame your existence or God for his silence!
Carry your heavy load and know there's liberty ahead!
Procrastination is the very best friend to failure!
The world will surely try to knock you down!
Though none can pre-empt the evil, be sensible!
Do not be silent like a river that has no origin!
Sometimes it will be your willpower against your strength!
Sometimes your time will be against your days!
And sometimes your wish will stand against your will!
Yes, there is a short cut to temporary freedom
But calamity sometimes hides like the yolk in the egg!
While you eat like a victorious lion, telling the glory story
Calamity will burst forth because you follow short lane!
Why can't you be calm? The patient dog eats the largest bone!
See, liberty will surely come... and when it comes
Dust will gather rise to the sky in front of your chamber!
There will be chants and odes and they will drum and dance
It will be for you, for you would have won the throne!
And the sword of victory would remain in your hand!
Now you will rest, because of your endurance and good deeds
