Happy 2019

Rare old times in a modern world,

Hidden stories with a twist

Of memories past,

Beneath the fireworks of the New Year

Wishing these wheels could go for a spin.

“The times, they are a changin”

_MG_7321

In the streets of downtown Thessaloniki; a crisis of humanity –

The shame of walking by a fallen man,

And knowing not how to pick him up.

A plastic cup that cannot save his dreams.

Change occurs, for better or for worse;

Determined by a falling nation, losing its humanity –

And I don’t rage against the dying of the light!
