	By Sara Margaryan

	You are trying continuously
	to reach for life
	and you don't mind
	all the obstacles on your way.
	Some people admire your stubbornness,
	others gossip, that you are a failure.
	You don't mind them, either.
	You scrawl on your knees,
	jump as high as your feet can lift you,
	run as long as there is a road ahead,
	with widely stretched arms,
	ready to grasp it - the life.
	Sometimes, of course, it passes by, unnoticed,
	because of your high speed,
	but the main thing is, that you believe in success.

	Keep on going, just slow down a bit
	and turn round when you hear a cuckoo;
	when you see the sunset, stop and glorify it;
	when you are freezing at night, light a fire under the
	moon;
	when the sun burns, jump into the sea to cool down;
	when people drink toasts, join them.
	And the road will wait...
	Don't run all the time.
