The Russian Album by Michael Ignatieff

YES, THAT IS THE FANTASY WE MUST SURRENDER – THE FANTASY THAT MOTHER (OR FATHER) CAN FULFILL (sic) WHAT THEY LONG AGO FAILED TO FULFILL (sic).

TO BETINA

A BRIGHTER TOMORROW

LIFE MAY TAKE A DOWNWARD SPIRAL;

AND OVERWHELM US FOR A WHILE.

PAIN MAY SEEM A WAY OF LIFE;

ENDLESS MOMENTS FILLED WITH STRIFE/

GLOOM SETTLE IN OUR SOULS;

SPLITTING THAT WHICH ONCE WAS WHOLE.

AND YET DESPITE THIS PAINFUL RIFT;

THERE STILL EXISTS A TIMELESS GIFT.

THE SAVING GRACE WHEN ALL IS GRAY;

THE PROMISE OF A BRAND NEW DAY.

PEACE & LOVE

JO
