The Automatons

(a found poem)


More valuable than anything else,

his own desire for becoming.


The work and the excellence,

The common instincts of humanity

regarded as the highest virtue

And in the duties of tradition and custom

A convert denied

that destiny ruled his life,

Rejected demands and expectations

To devote himself

to the obstacles that were within him.


Only those who dared

could claim their autonomy.
