Piu Avanti - ALMAFUERTE by herve88 Piu Avanti - ALMAFUERTE by herve88
Pedro Bonifacio Palacios (May 13, 1854 – February 28, 1917), better known by his sobriquet, Almafuerte, was an Argentine poet.

This poem..."Piú Avanti"

Give not yourself for defeated, nor yet defeated,
do not feel slave, nor yet slave;
trembling with fear, think yourself brave,
and lunge fiercely, already badly hurt.

Have the tenacity of the nail moldy
yet old and mean, is back to be a nail;
not the coward stupidity of the turkey
that eases its feathers at first sound.

Proceed like God who never weeps;
or like Lucifer, who never prays;
or like the oaks, whose greatness
needs water and implores it not ...

That bites and vociferates avenging,
already rolling in the dust, your head!
