Bitter Taste of Life

POETRY FORMAT, 30 Oct 2017

Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

I am rolling along endless way,
Trying to find my own place in this life,
Feeling the sharp edge of bloody knife,
Searching the welcome bay.
I am sick from the violence and decay,
I suffer from a web of lies,
I don’t want my early demise,
I don’t want to go astray.
I prefer a self-made law,
Where I have my eternal rest,
Where I find the quiet nest,
Near of ebb and flow…
