The magic child

N. Lygeros

Translation: Paola Vagioni

It did not chose to be born
only to die for the others.
Besides there was no reason
to not commit suicide.
When its mother looked at it
she was not able not to cry.
When its father looked at it
he could not see it.
Only that one knew what
compassion and humanity mean.
For humanity
as it understood that god forgot about it,
had given him everything
in order to be able to die
as a man, praiseworthy.
And thus the magic child died.
