world to those who are its worst. In the name of the values
that keep you alive, do not let your vision of (wo)man be distorted
by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved
this title. Do not lose your knowledge that (wo)man's proper estate
is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels
unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark,
in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet,
the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely
frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach.
Check your road and the nature of your battle.
The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours.
