A NOTE

by Marcin Malek

And if I come
I'll bring the dew
Blended with cruor
Of our veins

And if I reach your hand
I’ll become the tugboat
Of dignity and pride
Preserved with countless lives

Then... If I fall
I'll be the victor (anyway)
By sacrifice of blood
I'll bring the Happy Easter

To those
Bebeath the coat
Of diminishing faith
a note

against the rhapsody of hate
