Audaces Fortuna Juvat

For the diligent at school who still possess notions of Latin, no need of translations. For the others who preferred to make blowpipes with the famous Paper Mate Reynolds, and whom I formerly belong, here is about what this is about :

Fortune favours the brave, in other words the chance smiles to those who dare.

I drafted the poem below on October 11th, 2017, when I was still at the airport, and about to take the plane for the United Arab Emirates. I thought of what I left, and of what was waiting for me: a big leap in the dark and a perfect opportunity to set in maturity.

I believe that it is necessary to take risks to grow up and succeed. I need to face unknown, uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous situations to stimulate myself. As a result, I decided to take my fate in hand and to act for my happiness and, I hope, my future success.

The chance smiles to those who dare, I dared and it is the reason why I decided to entitle this poem:

Audaces Fortuna Juvat

Audaces Fortuna Juvat

The poem

This is it, the moment has arrived,

Flying to the unknown,

The feelings are overwhelming,

I’m ready to tame them.

I think about my family,

I picture them in my brain,

Their face will never fade away,

Helping me to go through nights and days.

I think about my friends,

Their words are in my thoughts,

I laugh, I cry … I feel good,

I know I will hold on.

I think about everything I love,

I’m eager to experience,

I can’t wait to share,

I can’t wait to grow.
