40639 - Lemkin’s persistence

N. Lygeros

Lemkin’s persistence
was a gift for Mankind
because without this
the ratification
of the Genocide Convention
would be impossible.
His beautiful mind
made possible a utopia
even in dark times
but now after
so many decades
we have to continue
our struggle
to complete
the work
of Lemkin
and to extend
his impact
in the planet.
