Chase

 

 

I’m racing with death,

it chases me, stops me,

stings every hour.

 

I’m racing with time.

Not just mine.

 

Children. Children.

They have short steps.

 

Maybe

with human help

it will be possible to overcome

the planned annihilation?

 

 

 

 

Only Sometimes

 

 

You said that people are good,

only sometimes they make mistakes.

I do not know what the word

sometimes

means.

 

Maybe

from September to…

 

When will they finish

these wrong death sentences?

Will we live to see?

 

 

 

 

Human Tragedy

 

 

A cry for nothing,

everyone nearby became deaf.

No one can hear calls for help!

Nobody wants to hear anymore!

Who else can react?

 

Only a watchful rat

who emerges from his burrow

to taste human hatred!
