‘For as long as life affords you a page, scribe your story my friend, that when your soul returns home, your influence upon this world will continue with no end,’ Sharma advised Esteban as he gently toked the fire before continuing, ‘for without wandering sages and lonely poets, to whom will the people turn when they need solace?”
‘Without estranged philosophers watching from afar, whom would they ask their questions of when they wished to know who they truly are?
‘Without silent contemplative types, to whom would they turn, to ask for advice?
‘If the candle did not sacrifice itself in becoming light, who would be your guide during the soul’s darkest of nights?’
With those words Sharma left Esteban by the fireside, to dwell upon his thoughts in the company of the stars. From a distance, an owl hooted in agreeance with Sharma’s advice, and then the burning wood crackled in delight, as Esteban’s pen began to move across the page.
Along the journey to self-realisation chronicled in Esteban’s Hypothesis, our protagonist, Esteban, keeps a poetic journal, the purpose of which is ever changing and often times unclear. The following compilation is that journal.
These are Esteban’s Conclusions.
