The Poet Community

Lennon | A Poem by Alberto Quero

The most honest man of History I have been,
that is why I have had few friends,
but they have been the right ones.
I believe it is true, in not many things:
in love and in myself
and I want no other medal
nor kingdom
It is enough for me if peace is given a chance,
only one, for it needs not another
only one to shelter those who want it

Perhaps I might be nothing but a dreamer,
I already know that:
I am the man who belongs to nowhere,
I just hope I will not be the only one
