How Often Do We Slash Too Fast

POETRY FORMAT, 17 Apr 2017

Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

How often do we slash too fast,
Forgetting that people are before us,
Our teeth knock again from fear,
And blood run out from our chests.

It seems that evil has green light,
Is it no longer possible for us
To get along with other people,
How for so many long years
Could not anybody stop?

Why we cannot forgive
All the old grievances,
Or we are ordered to live
Not on the mind, but like disabled?

Oh, homo sapience, who are you,
The forerunner of destinies on the planet,
You stand at the finish line,
When the end of everything in the world!
