Decision - Poem by Lora Colon

There comes a time to take a stand,
To decide which way to go;
And yesterday, I decided from now on
El ser mas importante sere` yo!

Le dije 'Basta, ya' a la tristeza,
And finally, it all became so clear;
I'll search for the path that will deliver
Las ganas de vivir y de reir

Me veo diferente en el espejo,
Por fin, ahora se pa` donde voy;
I'd shout it from the rooftops, if I could:
Yo soy mas importante, desde hoy!

De veras, ya no trates de buscarme,
No me encuentro en el mismo sitio;
Yo he decidido soltar las alas,
Que el ser mas importante... soy yo!

    Go with God, Your swan is waiting there in the crowd, We are legion! And all our hearts long for your smile. (Report) Reply
