Hero


A hero is always at odds
with the existing norms
he meets resistance at every step,
Is persecuted
then sacrificed
at the altars of norms.

A hero is for change
for he understands
the weakness of the present,
he brings a new wave
at the expense of his own life
for a tomorrow better than today.

A hero is in you and me,
only if we listen to
our inner voice,
if we do not give into
the temptations of little comforts,
we meet every moment, at every step.

A hero is immortal,
he lives through the ages
because he stands for a cause
while others live in a world of comforts
without raging against a million injustices
and disappear in thin air
without giving a fight.

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
