Image for the poem The signs lie to us

The signs lie to us

The sun changes the moon
How light changes darkness
We get older in our own way
Hearts churn with desire
Burning mercury through veins

The road lies before us
but the signs lie to us
We must find our own way


Anger, misunderstandings,
twenty meters behind
We go our way
And do not think about

That our efforts have died
They were covered with mold
That we have become machines
Now we write poems
About terrible misguided
Journeys to dark places


We play the role of jesters
Inside the souls are broken
Hide the gloomy faces
Masked circus clowns
In many bad performances

What is going on around
We lower our heads
Like porcelain dolls
Heart filled with fear


We get older
And the road scares
After all, all life is ahead

And how much is left
Parents, children, friends,
family and work
Salary and money
Debt and care


Freedom is forgotten
And the routine seizes
Why do we grow up
If scared to be older

We will change reality
And not to be adults
While the heart is
yearning, it will beat
We will always try to live


The sun changes the moon
How darkness consumes light
We get older in our own way
Shaped by our experiences

Age is coming
But does not go back,
Years go by
And why it is not clear
Death has a friendly smile


What does age mean
Why should we worship
After all, a child in a shower
Can we stay this way

We are even older
Does not mean wiser
Professions have chosen,
Doctors and fashion models


It is easier to fall in love
Create relationships
But harder to quit
Making decisions

Let them grow tall
And the requests are the same
Friends do not change
We laugh at least


Why make something up
Make faces for someone
Why are we puppets
just a silly gray mass

We are shaped by life's duplicity
Simple street style surely
Overcoming thousands of miles
Getting older
But do not lose consciousness


Hearts churn with desire
Burning mercury through veins
The road lies before us
but the signs lie to us
We must find our own way
