If we lose faith, trust and hope, we are lost

In this world where we have lost the art of sharing,

Though lost in the storm of time, our needs realising,

As rhymesters, we strive to enter Parnassus.

Like lost stars, in time tempest tossed,

We try to light up to get peace at all cost.

But if we lose faith, trust and hope, we are lost.
