6475 - The confession of Camus

N. Lygeros
Translation: Paola Vagioni

“There are beings
who justify the world,
who help out living
by their sole presence
– Yes, and they die”.
There was a silence
as if too many words
had been pronounced.
It was the truth though.
Certainly very crude for us
and yet so beautiful.
It was the one that Socrates
only knew but very well
not due to society
that had condemned him
but to humanity
that that accepted him.
