Tassos Theofilou: Someday it will all be over

Someday it will all be over
and we ‘ll be saying that at least we tried
that our existence was not pointless
that we were not a burden on this earth for no reason
that we have left something behind.

And our faces will be wrinkled
every wrinkle like a stab wound
for every moment of agony
for every century of loneliness.

Those afraid of wrinkles
are afraid of the past
of their meaningless present and
their pre-determined future.
They hate themselves and what they have become.

Time always leaves its marks
we will bear them in pride
