“From the streets of Athens and Rome, the voices still echo to crumbling walls

Look to the past and remember no empire rises that sooner or later won’t fall

Forever the changes we still have to face, some people say that a country is more an idea than a place

Though nothing is safe, we still choose the mark that we leave on the open canvas of space”
