The strange waiting

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

You did not want to grow up
only to pass
the time of unhappiness
so that the black misery
finally ends.
That is how you discovered
the misery of society
and the limits of compromise.
There was neither innocence,
nor justice.
It was only then that you regretted
for the time of misery
and you remembered
for the first time in your life
of the human who had not forgotten you.
