To all those that Dare

The well-trodden paths are beautiful, without flaws  
And their trampled cover is smooth  
There are no cobblestones, stones and sharp edges  
There are signs from the words  

The route is paved and it seems so boring  
And every turn is predictable  
And every step is already learned by passers-by  
Everything is known there, in general  

The peaks cannot be conquered in advance - †
there are only plateaus  
And all the rivers and seas are tamed  
And the wind spreads at your feet quite calmly  
Never knowing about storms  

What boredom! With the crowd, losing their will  
From point A to drag to point B...  
And the wings are tied so tightly behind the back  
And it's cramped, stuffy, fresh in the crowd!  

The soul screams - there are other roads  
Impenetrable dangerous paths!  
But there is scope, there is will, there is freedom!  
And my heart beats so loudly in my chest  

And it can be scary to most -  
The limit is not visible to the eye of those roads  
Not many agree to be the first  
And who dared, and did not dare  

But there are those, challenging fate  
And sending fear, peace and pain to hell  
They step barefoot over the cliff  
Driven only by the wind and the dream  

They are honest, stubborn, incorruptible  
their Universe is equal to the Soul  
And if I ask - how did you live?  
They will answer - it does not seem in vain!  

Such are the only roads for me...

I am always drawn to off the beaten path and I always will be. It was very hard having my whole life erased and being dropped in another country when I was young and being taken to some very off-the-path places but all of the pain and many trials helped to define me. And the only path I long for now is the one least traveled.
The picture is a "road" in the far reaches of Eastern Europe and I remember how we were lost in the mountains for a full day without seeing a single other person and I was at peace. Although it did sound like the axle broke more than once that little car was a damn trooper. I wish I could feel that again.
