Two Hemispheres

Two hemispheres wrinkled by the past – 
profound inheritance of bygone generations.
And if they sleep – in dreams out of the dust 
beasts in the light appear in creation.

The Good looks at itself into a looking glass –
it cannot see the troubles come –
out of the mirror The Evil looks at last  
and to Eternity it goes to dine.  

Two hemispheres are a mass of contradictions,
you cannot find a way lost in the dark,
in searching dashes Soul for sweet religion
and to the Beast she just unburdens heart.

(translated from Russian)
