English Nr. 197 Poezie

Quid est veritas

galya popova_literomania



After the last light
switches off
we know
everything has been done.

But in the darkness,
things still carry on.

I remember happy faces,
compositions of moments
which went beyond
common places
those days we didn‘t understand
the value of truth.

Quid est veritas? Pilatus asked.
The passing of time will show.
Now we understand.
