“Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”
By Dylan Thomas

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

There can be no substitute for the perseverence of the fiery spirit in a quest to achieve one’s life aspirations. Many try and most fail because they eventually accept defeat and solumnly sink into the myre of self pity. The haters cheer on as they broadcast their intentions for our demise. Most begin to listen to the hype instead of their heart. The heart will always trump the falacious projections of the darkness. The heart is the engine for the body to strive while the soul thrives. It is not about what you have but what you believe you can do that ultimately makes for success. Take in the series of glorious defeats Ghandi mentions in everyday life, and learn to embrace them with love and light so that they may add to your repertoire and provide sound lessons to propel forward and defeat your adversities. Always believe in your ability to improvise adapt and overcome. Step into your desitny and own it.

Namaste,
Michael Guido Pierangelino
