Mejor / Better

Mejor / Better

A Poem by Chandler Oswin

A poem I wrote in Spanish and English (no the translations are not equivalent)


Pensaba que era especial,

Y que necesitaba ser el mejor

En cada minuto de cada día

Sino fuera el peor.

Ahora veo que no tenía sentido

Porque siempre puedo mejorarme,

Y todos nos hemos mejorados 

Desde siempre.

El bebé trata de caminar:

Se calle, se levanta, y trata otra vez.

¿Es la verdad para adultos? 

Pues, agallas no son limitadas a la niñez.


I thought that I was special,

And that I needed to be the best

In every minute of every day 

Or otherwise I would be the worst.

Now I see that I was wrong,

Because I can always get better,

And we have all made each other better

Since forever. 

A baby learns to walk:

It falls, it gets up and continues to try. 

Is it the same for adults?

Well, courage is something you must decide.
