Poems and Songs on Vladimir Vysotsky.

The Exhortation for Myself.Translated by Akbar Muhammad.

Written by Igor Girkin.

Don’t wait for orders! don’t sit still,

Don’t listen to dulcet tones!

Go forward through downpours and winds

And wailing of snowstorms!

Forget about repose and ease,

While thou liv’st — make way!

There will be ages for those deeds

When lying in the grave!

Be honest, brave, do a real work,

Be at thy work a swell.

If get’st to order — take care of

Thy people as of thyself!

The man, who’s never made o’ersights,

Has spent his days in vain —

That man hasn’t born the load of life

And dragged with no avail!

Don’t be concerned about a get

And what the public says —

Remember that but God will set

A price for thy affairs!

1991.
