雷蒙度 (Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho) 是一位77歲的巴西詩人與哲學家,他在1970年代晚期成為無家可歸的街友。他在成為街友後的35年都在街上寫詩和故事,但他的美麗作品尚未能讓世人看見。

Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho is a 77-year-old Brazilian poet and philosopher. Raimundo became homeless in the late 70s. He spent the next 35 years writing poems and stories on the streets, but his beautiful work remained unknown.

雷蒙度每天總是坐在同個地點寫作,對於那些經過的當地居民來說,他可能就只是位骯髒、蓬頭垢面、不足取的老人罷了。

Raimundo sat in the same spot, writing, every single day. To the locals who walked by, he was just a dirty, unkempt, unworthy old man.

但他其實並不是大家所想像的那樣…他每天堅持寫作、從未停筆。也從未停止幻想有一天他的作品將會被出版,讓眾多讀者看到。

But he never stopped writing, and he never stopped dreaming of the day his work would be published.

 

2011年時,一位名叫沙烏拉 (Shalla Monteiro) 的年輕女性和這位年老的街友成為了朋友,她每天都會停下來和雷蒙度說話,而雷蒙度則會送她一首他寫的詩。

In 2011, a young woman named Shalla Monteiro befriended the old homeless man. She'd stop to talk with him on a daily basis, and Raimundo gave her one of his poems.

沙烏拉非常喜歡雷蒙度的詩,喜歡到甚至為他的詩和故事創了一個臉書專頁。

Shalla was blown away by his poetry -- so much so that she created a Facebook Page to feature Raimundo’s poems and stories.

 

當雷蒙度的詩一被放到網上,他便開始收到許多源源不絕的支持。當地居民也開始尋找他的蹤跡,並為他帶來禮物與讚美。如今,這個臉書專頁已擁有10萬名粉絲!

As soon as Raimundo's work hit the internet, he was received with an outpouring of support. Locals sought him out, brought him gifts, and offered him words of praise. To date, his Facebook page has over 100,000 fans.

這也為他帶來一想不到的驚喜:失散多年的兄弟前來相認了!他透過臉書和雷蒙度連結上後,便邀請他和自己一起住。

But out of Raimundo's newfound notoriety emerged one very unexpected person: his long-lost brother. After connecting via Facebook, his brother asked Raimundo to live with him.

 

雷蒙度在街頭35年後,第一次能將自己清洗乾淨,以後也都能每天洗個舒爽的澡。更最要的是…他有了一個家,並且被愛著!而他和沙烏拉至今仍是最要好的朋友~

Raimundo not only cleaned himself up for the first time in 35 years, but he had a home and he was loved. He and Shalla remain best friends to this day.

 

他現在也正在實現自己的夢想:為出版自己的書繼續努力工作著!

Raimundo is now working on publishing his poetry.

路邊的街友都擁有許多故事,並不一定每個都是因刻板印象的「好吃懶做」才招致「自作自受」,如果我們能像沙烏拉一樣多多了解身邊被忽略的美好,或許便能改變自己與他人~

如果有被感動到的話,把雷蒙度的故事分享出去讓所有人看看吧!
