Tribute to Ramon Sampedro

One jump. One dive into the coldest sea in front of you. You became a better man with no force to show except brilliance unmatched. You tackled dogmas and the idiocy to attain your wish. A cracked, baroque monument among still statues who shinned with thin veils of gold. Moving inch by inch, your crack deepens, dreaming to break apart and become the dust that soars.

Confusion and desperation ask why? Tradition and policy ask how could you? Honored no higher than a gangster’s funeral. Generosity and revelation blanket you as the earth turns cold.
