The Great Beginning.



In June - July 2013 I participated in an extraordinary event called the Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) organized by the University of California, Berkeley. There I met a lot of awesome individuals passionate about the environment like me. During the three weeks of being together and enjoying the Program we had become so much connected, that at the last day of the event before my departure home I decided to share my poem dedicated particularly to that “good-bye” moment. The poem is now available at the ELP blog, as well as is presented here:

There is the end
Of everything.
In heart and soul
It points its sting.

It was just yesterday,
When we said “Hi!”.
But now it’s past…
We say “Good bye!”.

“It’s time to leave,
We say in whisper,
The time has passed
Like sudden twister”.

We hug each other,
We kiss in cheeks.
But reasons to stay
Our mind eagerly seeks.

I hold your hand,
You hold mine too.
Still, vicious time
Breaks boldly through.

I turn away
To hide a tear.
“I’ll miss you… much…”
From you I hear.

I walk away,
You stay… alone.
The time has passed,
The time is gone…

This is the end
Of the entire thing.
No dance to dance with,
No song to sing.

But is this so?
No… I have a feeling
That this is only
The great beginning…
