I read this poem in spanish, and although my translation isn't very good, I still think it has a beautiful message:

Don't give up, you are still on time to embrace life and begin again,
accept your shadow, free your weight and fly again.

Don't give up, because that's what life is, continue the journey,
chase the dreams, open doors, unlock time, move the rubbles and untap the sky.

Don't give up, please, don't stop.
Even if cold burns, even if fear bites, even if the sun is going down and the wind is chilling,
there's still fire in your soul, there's still life in your chest.

Because life is yours and yours is the desire, because you have wanted and because I appreciate you,
because wine exists, and love is true, because theres no wound that time doesn't heal.

Open doors, unlock slides, go down the bridge and cross the pit,
abandon the walls that protected you, come back to life and accept the challenge.

Recover your laugh, sing, put guard down and extend your hands,
open your wings and try again, celebrate life, reclaim the skies.

Mario Benedetti​

My parents are from the Philippines and Tagalog was what I learned to speak first but I had trouble communicating with the kids at school so then it was English only. I understand it still but my family laughs at me when I try to talk it because practically everything I say is a literal translation from English.

Your translation skills are far better than mine! I would have resorted to a dictionary to look up every word. :coco:
