For the First Time

By Ioanna Doukouri & Vassiliki Aggelopoulou


Someone someday got afraid

of their shadow for the first time

And someone first looked

at the mountains with awe.

Someone got surprised

by the warmth of the fire

And someone hid

 from the echo of their voice.

Someone sobbed leaving their family

And someone laughed

splashing their face with water.

Someone ran to reach the setting sun

And someone sang with tears

under the moonlight.


Someone someday wrote for the first time.
