Promise your self
« on: 31 July 2010, 09:45:01 PM »
Promise yourself

Promise yourself to be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind

To talk health,happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet

To make all your friends feel there is something in them

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true

To think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only for the best

To be as enthusiastic about the success of the others as you are about your own

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater achievements of the future

To wear a cheerful countenance at all the times and give every living person you meet a smile

To spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others

To be too big for worry and too noble for anger, and too strong for fear

and too happy to permit the presence of trouble

That I would be good

That I would be good, even if I ain't did nothing
That I would be good, even if I ain't got the thumbs up
That I would be good, If I got and stayed sick
That I would be good, even if I ain't gain ten pounds

That I would be fine, even if I went bankrupt
That I would be good, If I lost my hair and my youth
That I would be great, If I was no longer queen
That I would be grand, If I was not all knowing

That I would be loved, even when I numb myself
That I would be good, even when I'm overwhelmed
That I would be loved, even when I was fuming
That I would be good, even if I was clingy

That I would be good, even if I lost sanity
That I would be good, whether with or without you...

Setelah Beberapa Lama

Setelah beberapa lama, kau akan mengerti perbedaan tipis antara menggandeng tangan dan membelenggu jiwa,

Dan kau akan mengerti bahwa cinta bukan berarti bersandar dan teman bukan berarti aman,

Dan kau mulai mengerti bahwa ciuman bukanlah kontrak dan hadiah bukanlah janji,

Dan kau mulai menerima kekalahanmu sambil mengangkat kepala dan membuka mata, dengan kelapangan dada seorang dewasa, bukan kesedihan seorang anak,

Dan kau belajar membangun semua jalanmu hari ini karena tanah hari esok sangat tak pasti, sulit direncanakan,

Setelah beberapa lama kau mengerti bahwa sinar mentari pun akan membakarmu kalau berlebihan.

Jadi, tanamilah kebunmu dan hiasilah jiwamu, jangan menunggu orang lain membawa bunga untukmu.

Dan kau mengerti bahwa kau bisa bertahan...

Bahwa kau sebenarnya kuat,

dan kau sebenarnya berharga.
