DON’T GIVE UP
Mario Benedetti – Fragment
Don’t give up, there is still time
to achieve and start again,
to accept your darkness, to bury your fears,
to free the burden, and take up your flight.
Don’t give up, life is just that,
to continue your journey, follow your dreams,
undo time, run thru the rubble
and uncover the sky.
Don’t give up, please don’t give in,
even when the cold burns,
even when the fear bites,
even when the sun hides,
and the wind quiets down,
there is still fire in your soul
there is still life in your dreams,
Open the doors, remove the bolts,
leave the walls that protected you,
live life and take up the challenge,
recover the laughter, and practice singing
lower your guard and extend your hands,
open your wings and try again,
celebrate life and take up the sky.
Because every day is a new beginning.
Because this is the moment and the best time.
Don’t give up, please don’t give in…
