A letter to my beloved Greeks

The course of Empire Destruction, by Thomas Cole (1836)

 

Dear my beloved Greeks,

 

Your ancestors once fought for freedom and democracy

and you now fight for a name.

You search for the truth in an event that happened thousands of years ago

When your future is an even bigger mystery.

You spend your time & energy trying to prove

what only thr ancient ruins can say for certain.


Maybe it’s become some sort of a chew toy

for your evergrowing desparation.

Maybe it’s time to stop trying to steal from their fame

and start trying to make your own.

      Haha, well, I wouldn’t say I am exactly disappointed, because being disappointed implies that you once had high expectations, and I believe we shouldn’t have high expectations for anything. I would say I am more frustrated at certain reoccuring behaviors. I don’t know, but do explain, what exactly do you mean by progressive historical monumentum? (Εάν θέλεις μπορείς να μου εξηγήσεις και στα ελληνικά, μπορεί να καταλάβω καλύτερα!)
