Restless Thought

Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

My restless provoking thought,
You are wandering among contrasts,
You are in doubt, you never trust
You suffer when everything comes to naught.
Sometimes you tell to yourself: you ought
To reconsider everything, to revise,
At times you make an unexpected surprise,
Smiling, you comment: it is finely wrought!
And when you causally are suddenly caught,
Be a carefully disguised treacherous trap,
You try insistently to find a gap,
So you will be a winner, my masterful thought!
