A frail boat our life is in the middle
                             Of a tempestuous ocean,
An exotic blooming flower,
                           In an ever-burning desert,
A fruit-bearing tree, rooted,
                           At the heart of a solid rock,
A delicate existence, surviving,
                           At the top of the Antarctic,

That is why, constantly we are searching for:

A calm friendly harbor of understanding
                                                To anchor,
Some precious drops of vivifying water
                           To quench our thirst,
A few priceless pounds of soil
                           To plant our hungry roots,
A sparkle of life-giving fire
                          To reanimate our frozen body,

 And surprisingly, 
We discover all these treasures
Hidden, in the depths of our indomitable soul,
In the form of ever-living Hope!
