42156 - The resilience

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Eleni Karpouzis

Hellenism’s resilience
cannot be measured
by its fighting spirit
but through its ability
to revert
to its exact position
even after
the tremendous blows
so it can continue
the war
even if its wounded
in a battle
because its spirit
doesn’t ever kneel down
nor does it bow
its head.
