Breaking down cultural barriers
Transposer une culture dans une autre par delà les barrières culturelles

How to live -- how,
Under alien skies…
Where sorrow feeds on sorrow?
How not to think of demise
With this dread of tomorrow,
When my soul’s songs, likewise,
Start to sound hollow…?

How I long to see
Springtime bloom once more,
Find the path to dreams, bright and free…
To fill my soul, drench and restore
My heart with sunshine and be
Able to breathe once more
The warm aroma of my native soil…

My inspiration
Oversees my words’ pace,
As the soul guides heart’s evolution,
Arranging space
For eternal life’s elation…
As I, now seek the road back to the place
That I call my sole space
In all creation…

Avik Derentz
