Off the Beaten Path (with Reading)

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...
