Clarity is such a wonderful thing
I am so clearly confused
But sure I am not ready to let go

I am so clearly aware of your distance
And stubbornly in denial of what it may mean

I am so clearly in turbulence
And yet find myself in this amazing inner calm

Clearly I don't know what is going on

All is left for me is to contemplate.
I guess this is what they mean by higher awareness
When the high tides come you let them pass
Either they will drown you
Or you will survive
Either way there is nothing much you can do about them
So let it be!

To think I thought I had a say in anything.
Clearly I was in the dark about everything

No país do deveria ser

Ando perdida, sem passaporte
Toda minha me guiei pelo que deve ser
Pensando ser o meu querer
Agora sei que ando muito pelo que não deve ser
Nem sei qual é o meu querer
E não entendo porque não me incomoda

Não é uma questão moral
É simplesmente ignorância total
Aprendi como devo sentir
Por isso não sei o que fazer
Quando não sinto o que deveria estar a sentir

Acho que quero mudar de nacionalidade
Mas não sei como me comportar neste novo país
Estou ainda moldada pelos valores do meu país de origem
E não sei se me vou habituar
Ou se é um entusiasmo momentâneo

E nunca a ignorância me fez tão pouco mal!

How to improve your life quality

A long time ago, a girl named Li-Li got married and went to live with her husband and mother-in-law.In a very short time, Li-Li found that she couldn't get along with her mother-in-law at all.

Their personalities were very different, and Li-Li was angered by many of her mother-in-law's habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li constantly.

Days passed days, and weeks passed weeks. Li-Li and her mother-in-law never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her every wish.

All the anger and unhappiness in the house was causing the poor husband great distress.

Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in-law's bad temper and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something about it.

Li-Li went to see her father's good friend, Mr. Huang, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the problem once and for all. Mr. Huang thought for a while, and finally said, Li-Li, I will help you solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you. Li-Li said, "Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do."

Mr.Huang went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a package of herbs.

He told Li-Li, "You can't use a quick-acting poison to get rid of your mother-in-law, because that would cause people to become suspicious. Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will slowly build up poison in her body.
Every other day prepare some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspects you when she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly towards her. Don't argue with her, obey her every wish, and treat her like a queen."

Li-Li was so happy. She thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to start her plot of murdering her mother-in-law.

Weeks went by, and months went by, and every other day, Li-Li served the specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered what Mr.Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her temper,obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated her like her own mother. After six months had passed, the whole household had changed.

Li-Li had practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she almost never got mad or upset. She hadn't had an argument in six months with her mother-in-law, who now seemed much kinder and easier to get along with.

The mother-in-law's attitude toward Li-Li changed, and she began to love Li-Li like her own daughter. She kept telling friends and relatives that Li-Li was the best daughter-in-law one could ever find. Li-Li and her mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother and daughter.

Li-Li's husband was very happy to see what was happening.

One day, Li-Li came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help again. She said, "Dear Mr. Huang, please help me to keep the poison from killing my mother-in-law! She's changed into such a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not want her to die because of the poison I gave her."

Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. "Li-Li, there's nothing to worry about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I gave you were vitamins to improve her health. The only poison was in your mind and your attitude toward her, but that has been all washed away by the love which you gave to her."

Enough self-recrimination already,

If I cannot be the woman I am supposed to be, with all the knowledge I have acquired so far, so just let me be the woman I can be.

If I am weak, just let me be.
If I am allowing too much, so let me.
I am not suffering for it.
I get annoyed, I get irritated, but all passes eventually. And in the end all is left is the inability to resist.

So, if I am unable to resist, why should I fight myself?
I should choose not to.

Worst part is, all this recrimination comes from none other than me. And it makes no sense, because if it is not bringing me down, if I am taller than ever, loved like never, why should I care about how it should be instead of being concerned with how it ACTUALLY makes me feel.

Be HAPPY woman... You are finally whole! It is not textbook? You never liked those anyhow. Happiness is what you choose and not what others say how it should like. Your journey is only yours to walk. And you are allowed the company it pleases you.

Não passa nada

Não disse?!
Tão previsível que quase enjoa
Mas a carne é fraca
E a televisão ainda não está ligada.

Melhor como?!

Melhor só que não acompanhada.
Que na realidade não muda nada.

Mas isto só me dá nestes momentos vazios
Que amanhã já não passa nada.
