Some years ago,
while watching my first childhood video,
I came upon the picture
of an exemplary kid.
Muted, smiling and compliant,
on his non protagonist spot.
He was a puzzling model child,
whose smile seemed to conciliate everything.
Afterwards I grew as a model lad:
outstanding student and sportsman,
good boy, prudent and caring.
Before college, also responsibly,
I decided to revise the contents
of my education received
at home and school.
I enrolled Philosophy studies at University,
while combining them
with Psychology ones at the same time.
I also started Pharmacy studies short after.
So much exemplarity
was not meant to be sustainable.
Then I experienced on my teenager body
the emptiness of depression
and the agony of anxiety.
I was disenchanted
by university as institution,
but I kept on researching on my own.
Since those old times
many enterprises happened.
I wrote three books,
I fell in love several times,
I even worked in Wall Street, I thrived,
I travelled outdoors
and indoors deep inside myself,
and I got to know closely
the works and teachings of
Behind there are left,
lots of years as a seeker,
a hard youth with its initiatic wounds,
a truce always surrounded
by teachings and books,
and a transformation process
from a model kid
to a complex man, happy, creative,
compassive and artistic being,
highly motivated to help others
on the path to their true self.
