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.
