Below are excerpts of their poems recited by the teenagers of Kozani at the 7th Literary Symposium.
These are worth reading:
The road is eternal
An endless darkness
The moments of my life have no subtitle
Only one continuous movement
Black and white of course
I went to school today
I say I don’t want to, I dare
but my parents don’t care
A pentagram is given to you
a tune to write
you draw Sol’s key
and the race begins.
So close your eyes, let the worries stop,
Right now, find your peace,
Because in the gentle rhyme of this poem,
You will find a moment out of time.
If life is like birds,
Let her travel
If love is an act,
It will be a hug.
– Don’t even try, you won’t succeed.
That’s how I grew up, that’s what they told me
I believed that too.
Who was I to be able to oppose them?
A nightingale chirps every morning,
like a harmonious chant on the day of Holy Saturday
as the sun rises in the twilight of the soul,
who wants to shine but the gloom won’t let her
Give my soul balm, it will bloom and have color
Your body will speak to you from deep sighs
It will make you forget about the sore mouth!!
The body burned, but the soul endures..
Give her joy, give her life, you’ll see she will fight!!!
Today something vague started
It had no color
It had the view of a city
It was the concept of depth
