Dostoevsky “Poem”

I was only in my early twenties when I discovered Dostoevsky

Dostoevsky was a prophetic writer, a man with a mission

I read one book after another like a starving man

Dostoevsky’s writings shaped my personality

Dostoevsky made me think like no other writer did

I spend my youth in an extremist environment surrounded by fanatics

Yet not once the doctrines of the land where I was born and raised dared to influence my thinking

I remain like a pearl hidden and exploded as soon as I escape the prison of that wretched land

Now there is a whole world to conquer

The world of mighty literature superior than anything
