by Alexis Karpouzos
(Athens, Greece )

The tears of a child, the pain of a mother!
A heart full of memories of a dead father!

Here’s so much sorrow, in every eye.
Nothing but hurt left here,
Nothing but bullets, pain, misery and shattered dreams …
Yet for the children of world only one equation counts: their shared humanity.

We will gather together as brothers,
We will gather together as brothers.
and we will live in solidarity with others in this world,
we are the thirsty souls of a world without divisions.

If we merge mercy with might and might with right,
then love becomes our legacy and change,
our children’s birth right.

Let’s step out of the shade, aflame and unafraid and don’t trust any immortalist.
The dove will find a resting place!!
