THE HELLENIC TIMELESS MORAL SCIENSE
The useful and fecund Moral Science teaches man
to govern his passions, to regulate his actions,
to live his life with honesty, dignity, peace and virtue,
to have noble hopes for his future fortune.
The highly dangerous moral diseases subtle
and dressed with the feelings of illusory pleasure,
nourish manners and customs of people without suspicion of a lesion,
with result to become disastrous after.
The cities and nations leaders consciously or unconsciously
οverlook that the true glory, power and prosperity
depend on the Greek paideia and morality
and the ignorant and corrupt citizens
pull down the uneducated societies.
With mental strength are distinct the truth and the falsehood,
the justice and injustice, the right and the wrong.
People become receptive and accept the truth,
with desire logic and practice of the right reason,
with good knowledge and experience of things,
with proper education and moral upbringing.
With the safe treasure of virtues and the assist of God
the soul becomes strong, honest,
peaceful, harmonic, imperturbable,
fruitful for its fellow man and human societies,
and win the high peak of detection
that deserves the gift of life she bestowed.

The bridges of PEACE
The humanity affairs like ungoverned ships
are crushed on the undersea reefs
she builds years and nowadays.
We forgot our ability to fly where we wish with our free thoughts.
We suffocate inside our deceptive -
protective armors of egoism.
We are balloons which deflate
by any casual pin of disharmony.
We locked our hearts inside the materialistic safe.
Not synchronized, we jump from cloud to cloud
and our life values are fallen down from our pockets.
We are not free, and our eyes are closed
covered with the veil of fanaticism.
Standing in a position too inconvenient
which gets souls pathetic, inconsiderate and unbearable tired,
we sleep too deep, never changing side, no reacting, at all.
We are satisfied with the hallucinated burners,
with the unimportant perishables.
We are crushed producing an deafening noise,
but we are unable to hear it.
We banished the real, the true
and the plasticity of our instinct
depriving it’s ability to hag this world all around us.
We lost our ability to look this Life
directly on eyes with bravery and dignity.
We keep the bridges of PEACE unused.
Fellow humans please tell me,
how we shall manage to pass on the other side,
over our differences without PEACE bridges?
