PROGRESS Poem by ILIAS FOUKIS

 



PROGRESS




To those not yet born 
someone 
with intense Biblical care in the use of reason 
will declare 
that we had been promised in life 
that no matter how we behave in life 
transcending the fragments of any and all questions 
directly 
we will have insured                                         

ourselves a place among the Just.



Those who have not been born 
by the time we leave 
will be filling our empty place... 
they will live it just as we did 
completely undisciplined...and very badly.



In such a case 
it will be hard for them to believe in the promise 
that despite all that 
they will die as the Just.




Translation  by  PHILIP   RAMP
