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

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

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.

And I could cry over it.
But I choose not to,
And maybe life is not so bad after all.

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.
