The Bitter Taste of Life

POETRY FORMAT, 19 Mar 2018

Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

I roll in an unknown way,
Trying to find a place for peace,
So tired of suffering, I do not know
If I will get a reliable house.
Everywhere are wars and turmoil,
We are enveloped a thick grid of lies,
When the end comes, say,
How can we not get off the right track?
