I am aware of being authentic and
I try to overcome my own personality every day,
tearing into pieces inside me all that is old and dead
because fighting is the vibrant word that lifts the weak and determines the strong.
The important is to disseminate, produce millions of smiles of solidarity and friendship.
Seeking to sow optimism and plant seeds of peace and justice.
I say what I think, with hope.
I think about what I do with faith.
I do what I should do with love.
I strive to be better every day, because goodness can also be learnt!
Even wheneverything seems to collapse,
I have to decide between laughing or crying, going or staying, giving up or fighting because I realized, in the uncertain path of life, that the most important thing is to decide.
This was the poetry of Brazilian poetess called Cora Coralina, which inspired me to create this mini-album.
