I Was Always Sure.... - Poem by Larisa Rzhepishevska

I was always sure that….
Tomorrow will come.
I’ve heard it from my mum.
That was in old days.
Today those bright rays
Happened to be in a haze.

Today I am a little bit confused.
My childish insurance is reduced.

I am not sure in tomorrow.
I thank God if it doesn’t bring me sorrow.
I’ve stopped looking for the truth.
What’s the use?
All around is only leis,
I can’t find any compromise.

Who can tell me how to live?
Who can tell me whom to believe?

I came to the conclusion and….
I think I am not an exclusion,
In this mad and crazy world.
This confusion hurled an invocation
To the reality of modern life:
Be happy! Do not strive!

I would love to live, to survive
I can see now: There is no use to dive as

You will not find anything on the bottom,
Only mud and silt,
You won’t find any balsam,
But only a feeling of a gilt.
Which was built today, but …not for tomorrow,
In absolutely different way.

The church bells are ringing, it’s good.
But…I am not singing, as …I am not understood.

    Why we feel to be
    I am not sure in tomorrow.
    I thank God if it doesn’t bring me sorrow.
    I’ve stopped looking for the truth.
    What’s the use?
    All around is only leis,
