I have neither coins
Nor other resources of the world

No one can steal that
I execute such words
That define respect for others
Perhaps I am late,
In the sense of seniority
But I am not weak
In the value of morality
As a fact
I breathe; I live; I feel
With the feeling of God's appearance
Upon my entity
Whenever you will come to me
You will realize, and trust it
I am your ending destiny.
