16719 - The droplets of the children

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Panayiotis Diamadis

The droplets of the children
facing the photographs
and the pile of the shoes
illustrated that barbarity
has no excuse
when it reaches the point
of destroying, of cleaving
the handfuls of innocent life
without a hint of mercy
because they did not want it to exist
without in the future the victims
and not only in the present
and every look is watching you
as if it wanted to understand
why it could not live
without becoming a victim
of a crime against Humanity.
