HOPE OF DAWN
[Original written in Polish by - Fr. Jan Pach ]


Hope Of Dawn

I live between the scream of emptiness
and the silence of heaven
I walk on the ridge of hope
and add poetry from the pages of the Gospels
and still I walk in darkness on the edge

Through the smeary pit of events
which the sun has not cleared up yet

I go to the crest of the mountain
with the hope of dawn

Nadzieja świtu

Zyję między krzykiem pustki
a milczeniem nieba
chodzę grzbietami nadziei
i nadal w ciemności idę po krawędzibin

Przez zamazane szyby zdarzen
nie przedarło się jeszcze Słonce

Idę granią
z nadziejł świtu
