The earth conceals itself from all desires,
As what a man pursues, another flees.
What soothes one's troubled soul, can minds inspire -
Ascending heights or drag them to their knees.
Misfortunate it is that ofts the case
Of brigands forcing wills on humble men
Who cry - Relief! Remove us from this place
Of tortured lives, and make us whole again!
Yet, men who maintain peace by shedding blood
