38395 - We don’t stop the battle

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

We don’t stop the battle
wherever we might be
because the national issues
remain open
and it’s not the diplomats
who will convince us
that they can solve them
because we have seen them
at their inflictive
and unacceptable acts as well.
We aren’t going
to leave the Skopian issue
to the mercy of the Lord
because we believe
in Christianity
and we haven’t learned
to kneel down
when we ought to
give a fight.
