N. Lygeros

When you want peace,
you already have a part of you
which is dead.
You want to be safe
without realizing
that it’s already a compromise.
You feel free in your own jail.
You conceive it, you create it
you build it and now
you are dying in it
in peace.
Rest in peace
doesn’t mean
that you are still alive.
To be safe is a manner
to be partially dead.
Just enough
to stop your mentation.
You occupy your life
with emptiness
in order to feel
that you are doing something
but it’s already
too late for your soul.
