Testing times are not the time to give up.

Keep on loving your noble Dreams 

Go against the Cosmos -

Masochist, the injustice of your fate.

Cry until your tears run dry.

Hope, you`ll get what is not yours.

Believe in the saying of the Alchemist

Fill the Universe with Positive spell.

Ask God for thousand times to grant you mercy.

Don`t give up till the eternity dies out,

Enjoy, Dream and live till the last breath remains,

Follow the stars, they will guide you

In seeking what was yours and will always be.

Beg God and you shall be filled with Providence.

Search in hope the lost happiness 

You shall find it.

And believe that you are being tested.

For the testing times are not the times for giving up.
