Anthem of Life

“Anthem of Life”

All heartbeats together under just one sound… 

Their prayers voices in unison became every woman’s cry…

While abandoned footsteps on wet sand 

awaited the arrival of the evening tide

to emancipate themselves from the strings of man…

A lotus flower rose from the dirt, exterminated man’s decay…

And softly whispered to the wind of an approaching day…

A new dawn has just begun…

A new man is about to be born…

This time though he knows where he comes from, 

a woman disguised in his body’s soul

will always remind him so…

He will be a woman’s son

of woman’s flesh

of woman’s blood 

he will be of woman’s bones

of woman’s heart

of woman mind,

he will be a woman’s son, 

a woman disguised in his body’s soul

will always remind him so…

And all heartbeats together under just one sound… 

Their prayers voices in unison will become the new anthem of Life…

A woman’s son

of woman’s flesh

of woman’s blood 

he will be of woman’s bones

of woman’s heart

of woman’s mind

he will be a woman’s son…

And all heartbeats together under just one sound… 

Their prayers voices in unison will become the new anthem of Life…
