A poem for the Olympic Games
“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”Unknown
Tough days indeed, but you make me believe that life has won over death, you inspire me to continue working towards my dreams, you ignite my aspirations. A Chinese proverb says: ‘Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness’, so, thank you all for these wonderful moments, for even amidst the stress and fear of the pandemia, these heartbreaking situations that look like as if the sky is falling over our head, and all of the upheavals, you’ve given your best… thus to me you are all winners who’ve won the gold medal. We all continue to protect ourselves as best as we can, aware that we are responsible towards each other, but existence just can’t stop like that — in gloom, heartache, the night — for life is like an unstoppable river, our daylight filled with daydreams, within which lives those that continue to carry hope, those who say yes to life.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.Mahatma Gandhi
The Extraordinary The extraordinary flows in our veins We can go beyond ourselves Surpass everything, transcend the pain Achieve all the impossible To attain immortal health The sea extends in front of us Each time the human kind excels Each time we eat star dusts, And our prodigy is known to them All our feelings are felt, adrenaline rush Sportsmen, sportswomen, all athletes All these makers of realities Who show us that Dreams are possible With enough love and passion With lots of trainings and dedication Everything in life is achievable That’s what these fond of sports These masters of the body and mind Teach humans through what they achieve As ambrosia burns in their blood They are the truth in a world of lies In a sea of deadly conflicts They are the beauty of the ordinary And because of them all I believe in the extraordinary I now know that we can all win Become the better side of humanity Transcend our human limitations To be better than we were yesterday Extraordinarily beautiful things.
