Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Decision


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!

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
