Blessed be those

who are opening paths without knowing if they will have

the strength to conclude it;

who put themselves to the test without further ado than the love

for a cause and the fervor to fight the good fight;

who believe that people are made to accomplish one

for the other, performing generous a mankind;

who are full of projects for the next years even fearful

by the ones of next week;

who fall in love and are not afraid to demonstrate it;

who plant a tree fully aware never will reap its fruits

nor sit by its shadow, but fully contented for,

someday, it will serve for a fellow one,

indebted to a past kindness.
