Our decision

N. Lygeros

Translation: Paola Vagioni

We read the dead
and we write for the unborn.
We did not choose our season
nor our society.
They were not ours.
We choose the people
of the past and the future
inside a pointless present.
Everybody waited for us
and we wait for the next
inside the solitude of the crowd.
We are alone, we are few.
But we will live
with the dead and the unborn.
