As always, during tough times in life my muse wakes up and starts singing/dancing/creating... I have been listening to this song by Andrei Makarevich for the past couple months, and I have always wanted to convey its meaning into English.
It's still a work in progress, but this is what I have so far...
The purpose of this life is that I ought to
With all my strength, my body, soul and mind
To go forth, to love, and do what I am meant to
And never ever leave myself behind.
Don't wait for death to come, don't wonder why -
And up until the end you'll breathe without fear.
The bullet that is meant for you you'll never hear -
And all the rest of them will have to pass you by.
Until next time,
