The world is for me a tough place - Nadezhda Zaharieva

The world is for me a tough place
But my tenor I choose how to alter:
Live in honour or live in disgrace
Live in dignity or baseness
Live in treason or faithfulness
Live in hatred or strong fondness.
Don't lie to yourself human daughter,
As a wheeze came to me someone's breath,
Of your fate you are not the true holder
Those who can't survive without bread
Choose only life or death.

Nadezhda Zaharieva (born 1944) Bulgaria
