Fledgling

(Written at the turn of 2011)

I was born in 1983,
But I feel this is the beginning.

I was a baby in 1983
But I am a fledgling in 2011.

This is the beginning of my career.
And thus of my life.

Because I believe
To live is to work.

And to work
Is to live.

Now I want to work.
Now I am free to live.

I Choose (poem)

What I have is what I want.
What I hope for I will probably get.
What I did not get I probably did not deserve.
Where I go I will like.

What I do is up to me.

I have seen the dark side of life,
And I could cry over it.
But I choose not to,
And maybe life is not so bad after all.

Zgjedh

Ate qe kam eshte ajo qe dua.
Ate qe shpresoj ndoshta do ta kem.
Ate qe nuk pata ndoshta nuk e meritoja.
Atje ku do shkoj do ta pelqej.
Cfare do bej varet nga mua.

Kam pare anen e erret te jetes,
dhe mund te qaj mbi kete.
Por zgjedh te mos,
Ndoshta jeta nuk eshte aq e keqe —
me ne fund.

(English)

Gjerat duhan kohen e tyre.

Ai qe nuk shqetesohet ne se eshte me i mire se tjetri, eshte me mire se ai qe eshte me i miri nder te dy.

Pse duhet te jesh i mire? Sepse eshte ne te miren tende.

Ne fund te jetes njeriu thote: sa gabime qe kam bere … Tani e di se c’duhej te beja.

Te degjosh dike duhet te kushtosh vemendje.

Vetem kur shikojme gabimet tona te perseritura nga nje tjeter i kuptojme sic duhet ato.

Sa shpesh na merr malli per te kaluaren?! Nje dite do te na marri malli per te sotmen. Prandaj gezoje te tashmen.

Ciltersia e femijeve eshte me e cmuar se ciltersia e te rriturve.

Faleminderit Zotit per miresine e njerezve te mire.

Merzitja nuk perfshin kur merresh me pune.
