7707 - The gaze of Far East

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou

When you look at the gaze of Far East
you can understand the miracle of love
which has endured everything for a life.

Otherwise, if yellow bothers you, learn
that it is the same red blood that is shed
by the inhuman torture.

Don’t look only at your suffering,
because you will believe that you are alone
whereas that is what the whole humanity is.

The only way to change things
is that you get hurt in the same way
wherever the wound of humanity might be.
