Towards Freedom

The first man born
In the heaven!

The first woman created
In the heaven!

Craving for knowledge…
Who might be the


Paradise lost

Pining in the ‘cursed’

Men, Women and Children!

Let our today free us
From all the past shackles

Let Satan take a
Back seat

Let us march towards
A new freedom!
