The Poet Community

Gandhi | A Poem by Alberto Quero

To fight or not to fight:
that is no dilemma
Will our struggles cease with us?
If they are fair, if they take us our lifetime
they will prevail within the new hearts
in the generations that are to come,
they will erect a solemn destination
for their nations

May a spinning wheel every man be
peace is invincible

From Alberto’s award-winning poetry book, “Los Que Vinieron,” published in Spanish by Negro Sobre Blanco Editions. Caracas, Venezuela, 2014.
