84691 - No peace

Ν. Λυγερός

When you prefer peace to freedom
sooner or later
you will become a slave.
Slavery is compatible with peace.
Without freedom,
your peace is just a huge jail,
nothing more.
So don’t try to convince us.
We will never prefer peace.
When you prefer fire to light
you are thinking only about your body.
But life is not the duration of the body,
it is the gift of the soul
which needs a purpose.
If the only thing which is important
is your job, your situation
you are already a slave.
You call it life
to excuse yourself.
But it’s only existence.
So take your peace away
and leave us alone
because we don’t need
to waste time with your condition.
