No meaningless significance, the insanely inhuman evil, portray.

All these, not will misfortune, reverse.
In alliance, our spirit invulnerable, setting goals for a
courageous victory over tyranny, discovering the solutions for
everlasting peace and good will.
Peace will prevail, historians have quoted wisely.

The world listens to cries and cries with relentless compassion.
Ribbons of empathy, turning to a glorious rainbow for peace.
We need heed to our 'Omnipotent' legacy,
ever guiding in our efforts.
Peace will have reigned, and forever kept guarded.
Holding within the boundaries of human decency,
securing our immortal love for a -
Unilateral, Universal Family...
