Fear

They say homo sapiens, or humans, if you prefer, are comparatively vulnerable in terms of physicality. However, looking at our history vulnerability is a complex topic.

Today I was looking through my old journals, diaries and notebooks from elementary school till now. While searching I found an old unfinished poem which I think still fits well with the current situation of the world. The poem was written in Greek – I was still in high school so my English were still not as good – so I will first write it in Greek and then I’ll try to translate it.

Ο μεγαλύτερος φόβος

‘Ανθρωπε σε φοβάμαι

Φοβάμαι να τρέξω, να παίξω

Φοβάμαι

Δεν ξέρω που να πάω

Δεν ξέρω τι να κάνω

Βλέπω τέρατα μεγάλα

Άσχημα και τρομερά

Φοβάμαι

Φοβάμαι να μιλήσω, να χορέψω

Φοβάμαι

Θέλω να ζήσω, να γελάσω

Να νιώσω ξανά

Φοβάμαι

Θυμήσου πως ήταν παλιά

Που ήσουν ελεύθερος, χαρούμενος, ζωντανός

And here is the translation:

The Biggest Fear

Human I’m scared of you

I’m scared to run, to play

I’m scared

I don’t know where to go

I don’t know what to do

I see huge monsters,

Nasty and horrific

I’m scared

Human I’m scared of you

I’m scared to talk, to dance

I’m scared

I want to live, to laugh

To feel again

Remember how it was before

When you were free, happy, alive

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed it:) Let me know your thoughts!
