Such life it is.
Such society exists.
As it is written in the book of fate.
Restriction of wishes is severe jailer.
Boredom is an unpleasant visitor.
Time is a janitor of all events.
Chains of destiny are strong.
But the quiet voice of change
breaks through the wall of silence
on the surface of history.
