It was not ordered

Love must be given to everyone

Give the world some color

For a better existence of humanity.


Love is not a grain of rice

So let’s take it easy

Just because one quarrel

Changes things and destinies.


Love is a vicious circle

But until love becomes constant

We can still lose our dreams

Which are woven from existence and embrace


Life is sometimes a lie

But as long as love exists

Hope cannot die lightly

Because hope is the meaning of life


And love has an expiration date

People would say that lightly

They judged everything without question

And some people they don’t even know!


Destiny carved in the bottom of the soul

I guess that’s the phrase for us unlucky ones

“Love is not a grain of rice

So that it can be thrown lightly!”
