If you are passionate about something, and if it is your ultimate dream, you must continue to pursue it with determination, perseverance, and unrelenting positivity, no matter how many obstacles pop up on the way, no matter how much hardships one needs to face. And who better to teach us this lesson than this homeless man, of whom this story is about.

He is a 79-year-old poet who has been living on the streets of Sao Paulo for the last 35 years. He signs each of his poems as "The Conditioned."
Shalla passed by him every single day. In 2011, one day, he gave her a poem that he had written, and that's how she got to learn about his dream.
...it was Raimundo's dream to publish a book of his poems, and Shalla decided to help him in achieving his dream.
