11365 - Listening to the duduk

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Maria Stambolidou

While listening to the duduk
it is impossible not to think
the history of the Armenians
and the past
that they have traversed
to show
to all of us
that humanity
can defeat
even genocide
because it dies
always standing upright
and gives the example
to the peoples suffering
and not stooping
when the barbarian comes
to exterminate
in order to gain
a ground
without loving it
but simply
because of being in power.
