You Are Officially Old - Πάει Η Νεότητα

Poem By Kostas Lagos

Time it is my friend, to be brave and bold

When pain means life, you are officially old

Ώρα είναι φίλε μου να δείξεις γενναιότητα

όταν ο πόνος σημαίνει ότι ζεις, πάει η νεότητα

Comments about You Are Officially Old - Πάει Η Νεότητα

a brave and bold heart can enjoy the life even in severe pain!
When pains means life, you are officially old... This word is a kind of truth that many may not be taking into consideration. But it's obvious, and nothing but obvious. Thanks for sharing
I sing a song about pain every day. The greatest wisdom is to be ironic of the pain that you experience as a bad neighbor to whom you must see each day. Great true poem.
To be brave and bold dispense the pain. A great short write that depicts old age. So cleverly written.

When you don't hear His voice in the cicadas' singing?
How can you immerse yourself in ongoing prayer
When the melody of crickets doesn't bring you in katanyxis?
