84184 - After 2001

N. Lygeros

2001 was the starting point.
But we have to wait 2002
for the flashpoint.
You started to protect me
but I want from you
to protect Mankind.
And when I learned you chess
it was only for the beginning
as a mental exercise,
nothing more.
Because people aren’t just
pieces and pawns.
That’s why we stop the lesson
at the Battery Park.
But now you know
that everyone deserves to live.
Don’t sacrifice people
because life isn’t a game.
I learn you
to love Mankind,
so love also its parts.
They are precious to me
and they should be precious
also for you.
Of course, it’s only an advice.
And you can make your choice.
– I did it.
