His name is Ramundo Arruda Sobrinho and for 35 years, this 77-year-old homeless man spent his days doing his passion: writing poetry and short stories. But his work remained completely invisible to the world until one day in 2011, he befriended a woman named Shalla. The video below is a critically acclaimed documentary called The Conditioned and it tells the incredibly story of Ramundos life and how it changed after giving Shalla one of his poems.
Shalla was so touched by Ramundos poetry that she started a Facebook page to share his work with the world. What happened next is nothing short of a miracle.
