The Old Man from Drenica
© by VENUS



Tragedy
has frozen your Tears
stopped your Heart beat
torn your Soul into pieces
And has turned this forehead
I painted into a Stone

There you can feel
HISTORY written
Dardanian Anthropomorphy

From this Silence that Hurts
Like in Olympus
I hear your Voice
And the Truth
I see in You!

Let me tell you something
EUROPE..
For centuries
Heroes’ blood
Runs through these veins
Over those Hills
Over those Graves
The Sun will shine again

They won’t see Spring anymore
But Heroe’s blood
Is never forgotten
And this Voice
Of the Old Man
Will echo *ILLYRIAN
Now and Forever.


* ILLYRIAN = ILLYR = ILIR = FREE
Europe: war zone
Kosovo 1999
Q: How do you write
