Leaving home

One day you are the kid that happily walk out the home door to embrace the future road, one day you are the crying parent staying in the door for saying goodbye. The time you walked out the door your couldn't understand what is in the parent's heart but the time comes when you will understand. This things should be done, is cycle of life. The kid has to have the enthusiasm to walk that door, the parent should endure the pain. As we grow older the enthusiasm disappeares due to such shocks life prepares for us. We need to accept it. Time heals. After some time kid realizes the absence of parent, parent learns to accept the fact straightening the heart.
But it hurts. It is unfair. It hurts. After all what is fair in this world. Fairness is relative. We need to accept.  We have a soul that is made to get hurt.

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings  
                                                       by Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps
on the back of the win
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and is tune is heard
on the distant hillfor the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

The personality seed / La simiente de la personalidad

We each born to have a personality, it can be changed during the lifetime. At the end the result for our life is the road shape we went through. But we born with a seed, a seed that differs from any other seeds. This seed wants to be feeded to grow in a beautiful "flower". In order to allow it to grow up we also need to know what it is needed to help it develop. We have to learn to listen to it. We feed it with what we do everyday but also when we don't allow time for it we are actually doing it unconscious. There are many examples. When we go to a theater we do not know how we will like the scene or not but we go to find out. When we start a book we first choose it for some reason we already know it would match our personality but actually we are trying to find more about our personality and the reason we choosed that book. When we have a fight it starts with a dislike reason but we are still continuing just because we want to understand why we dislike it. That is why after you may regret some words you have said but you need to tell it to understand that seed inside you, also for letting it show off. That is the personality. Everyday in everything you do, you try to discover it. We are build like this we need to understand that people react in a way because they need to learn about them selves. What is interesting that the ones that are the most showing it off gives impression that they have a strong personality but they are actually showing it off because they lack stability and are trying to understand and learn, meanwhile the ones are not showing off are the ones that already know.  So do not get intimidated by some people that overreacts in some situation and try to understand the reason behind. Also we need to allow our personality to grow freely and by our will and allow time for it so that we don't have to find it out by strange acts later.

Cada uno de nosotros nació para tener una personalidad, se puede cambiar durante la vida. Al final el resultado de nuestra vida es la forma de carretera que hemos pasado. Pero hemos nacido con una semilla, una semilla que se diferencia de otras semillas. Esta semilla quiere ser alimentado a crecer en una hermosa "flor". A permitir que crezca también tenemos que saber lo que se necesita para ayudar a su desarrollo. Tenemos que aprender a escucharlo. Los alimentamos con lo que hacemos todos los días, sino también cuando no lo damos tiempo y que en realidad estamos haciendo es inconsciente. Hay muchos ejemplos. Cuando vamos a un teatro que no sabemos cómo nos va a gustar la escena o no, pero vamos a averiguarlo. Cuando empezamos un libro por primera vez se elige por alguna razón que ya sabemos que se correspondería con nuestra personalidad, pero en realidad estamos tratando de encontrar más información sobre nuestra personalidad y la razón por la que elegí este libro. Cuando tenemos una pelea se inicia con una razón de antipatía, pero estamos continuando todavía sólo por razon de entender por qué nos disgusta. Es por eso que a veces después te arrepientes de algunas palabras que han dicho, pero tienes que decirle a entender ese semilla dentro de ti, también para dejarlo de mostrar. Esa es la personalidad. Todos los días en todo lo que haces, tratas de descubrirla. Estamos hecho así tenemos que entender que la gente reacciona de una manera porque necesitan aprender acerca de ellos mismos. Lo interesante  es que los que muestra más te da la impresión de que tienen una personalidad fuerte, pero que en realidad se está mostrando porque carecen de estabilidad y están tratando de comprender y aprender, por otra parte los que no están mostrando son los que ya sabe. Así que no se sienten intimidados por algunas personas que reacciona de forma exagerada en una situación y tratar de entender la razón detrás. También tenemos que permitir que nuestra personalidad de crecer libremente y por nuestra voluntad y darle tiempo para no tener que encontrarla atravez de actos extraños más tarde.
