Becoming

20140828_marcus-antoninus_becoming

remember who we were
when philosophy wasn’t our guide
do not be ashamed but reflect and decide
becoming who we want to be now

setting sail on that bold course
keep spirit, body and mind at work
growing them strong, flexible and free
rich in options the world becomes

nurturing the inner trinity sane
silence, enough and calm, faithful tools
on Earth no storms, winds or waves
hamper us from becoming sages

Marcus Antoninus

Inspired by Epictetus, in deep gratitude to his pupil Arrian for having compiled the “manual” with the essential teachings of the master.
