You shall live more

When you are depressed 
Do not let your tears down,
Hope that at the end of the tunnel,
That at the end of the darkness
There shall be dazzling light of day;
       Whenever you are most disillusioned,
Do not let yourself suffer with pessimism,
For after the floods are gone a way
The fields will once again bloom green
And the earth shall be dry again;
        Whenever you feel dejected and humiliated,
Stay quiet as a dove, stay calm,
In the end your soul shall be exalted
And your person shall be smeared with glory
Of triumph, elation and victory;
       Whenever you feel that you can live no longer,
Look at the sun and its beauty
Shall fill you with life, you shall live more.
