Though Fate has brought me where I am today,
it was Love unbound, that showed me the way!
I remember the moment I was born
and how the first cry soon became a scorn!
Well, then the abrupt hills and falls began,
that made me forget the maps to my sun
and to the fountain of my life itself,
so I was compelled to live like an elf,
hidden in the wilderness, shrouded in mystery;
although now I have found them both and set them free!
Dear Fate, you have my sincere gratitude
for your cruelty that had hardened me, so I could
wait for her with patience till the preset hour came
but love her still with an urge to make Venus grow insane!
