Moving from Intention to Action...

My recent trip to Vienna in November gave me the opportunity to get inspired by a couple of very close friends. Their achievements and the way they have been shaping their dreams in the making were a slap in my laziness. Not only they hosted me and listened, but also invited me to be part of Solution, a conference with the theme that gave birth to this post, "moving from intention to action!".

I, very honored, accepted their invitation to be part of the conference team.

When I got back in Lisbon I couldn't help it but keep on thinking again and again in them, knowing that there was an underlying message between the lines... I was cracking my head trying to find it, but it was impossible... So I decided to give it a time and let it emerge.

And then, in front of me, appeared. "Moving from intention to action" I read in the mail I received, and I knew that it was talking to me, to ME!

It is time. I needed to start NOW!
How it is possible that I kept on finding excuses not to?
What was that that I was fearing/avoiding?
What is that that I want to start?
How alive is still my dream of the soul spa?

And questions kept on coming...

Today I can proudly say that Beautiful Individuals has come to life.

Check it out!

Or check the fan page in facebook and become a fan!

I know now what my role in Solution can be.

I have definitely moved from Intention to Action.

It will be awesome to see some of you in Vienna next year, apply!

Love tons,


PS: Thanks Hinnerk and Alexis, I truly love you.

All about a minute

As we grow up,

we learn that,
even the person that wasn't suppose to let you down,
probably will.

You will have your heart broken,
probably more than once and its harder every time.

You will break hearts too,
so remember how it felt when yours was broken.

You will fight with your best friend.
You will blame a new love for something the old one did.

You will cry because time is passing too fast,
and eventually lose someone you love...

take too many pictures,
laugh too much,
and love like you've never been hurt,
because every sixty seconds you spend been upset,
is a minute of happiness you will never get back...

É pra lá que eu vou

Para além da orelha existe um som, à extremidade do olhar um aspecto, às pontas dos dedos um objecto - é para lá que eu vou.
À ponta do lápis o traço.

Onde expira o pensamento está uma ideia, ao derradeiro hábito de alegria uma outra alegria, à ponta da espada a magia - é para lá que eu vou.
Na ponta dos pés o salto.

Parece a história de alguém que foi e não voltou - é para lá que eu vou.

Onde não vou? Vou, sim.
E volto para ver como estão as coisas. Se continuam mágicas.
Eu vos espero.
É para lá que eu vou.

Na ponta da palavra está a palavra.
Quero usar a palavra «tertúlia» e não sei aonde e quando.

À beira da família estou eu.
À beira de eu estou mim.
É para mim que vou.
E de mim saio para ver.
Ver o quê?
Ver o que existe.

Depois de morta é para a realidade que vou.
Por enquanto é sonho.
Sonho fatídico.
Mas depois - depois tudo é real.
E a alma livre procura um canto para se acomodar.

Mim é um eu que anuncio.
Não sei sobre o que estou falando.
Estou falando do nada.
Eu sou nada.

Depois de morta engrandecerei e me espalharei, e alguém dirá com amor meu nome.
E de lá volto para chamar o nome do ser amado e dos filhos.
Eles me responderão.
Enfim terei uma resposta.
Que resposta?, a do amor.
Amor: eu vos amo tanto. Eu amo o amor.
O amor é vermelho.
O ciúme é verde.
Meus olhos são verdes. Mas são verdes tão escuros que na fotografia saem negros.
Meu segredo é ter os olhos verdes e ninguém saber.

À extremidade de mim estou eu.
Eu, implorante, eu a que necessita, a que pede, a que chora, a que se lamenta.
Mas a que canta.
A que diz palavras.
Palavras ao vento?, que importa, os ventos as trazem de novo e eu as possuo.

Eu à beira do vento. O morro dos ventos uivantes me chama.
Vou, bruxa que sou. E me transmuto.

Oh, cachorro, cadê tua alma?, está à beira de teu corpo?
Eu estou à beira de meu corpo.
E feneço lentamente.

Que estou eu a dizer?
Estou dizendo amor.
E à beira do amor estamos nós.

Tristeza y decepcion....

La Iglesia Católica vuelve a destacar por la persecución de la homosexualidad, esta vez en Uruguay

Mientras en algunas confesiones se asiste a avances en la aceptación de la diversidad, los católicos de Uruguay promueven la no contratación del profesorado homosexual en sus escuelas

[08/09/2009] Durante el pasado verano, diferentes confesiones cristianas han dado pasos, algunos tímidos y otros más destacados, a favor de la normalización de la realidad LGTB, de lesbianas, gays, transexuales y bisexuales. Mientras tanto la Iglesia Católica continúa ahondando en la homofobia con ejemplos como la promoción por parte de la Conferencia Episcopal uruguaya de la no contratación del profesorado homosexual o la recogida de fondos en Maine para luchar contra el matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo.

El avance de diferentes confesiones cristianas, que debieran de servir de ejemplo a la Iglesia Católica, destaca por ejemplo con el nombramiento de altos cargos eclesiásticos a personas abiertamente homosexuales, como es el caso de la Iglesia Luterana sueca, que ha nombrado a una obispa lesbiana, o la diócesis de Los Ángeles de la Iglesia Episcopal (la anglicana estadounidense) que ha nombrado obispos a un gay y a una lesbiana. Esta misma Iglesia Episcopal autoriza la bendición de matrimonios homosexuales.

También es destacable la celebración, durante el Orgullo brasileño, de una boda múltiple entre personas del mismo sexo, oficiada por la Iglesia de la Comunidad Metropolitana de Sao Paulo. La Iglesia Evangélica Luterana de América, por su parte, permite la ordenación de pastores gays y lesbianas sexualmente activos en una relación de compromiso, aunque no reconoce el matrimonio, y la Iglesia Anglicana en el Sur de África acepta que los homosexuales convivan en “fieles relaciones de compromiso”.

Para Juan Antonio Férriz, coordinador del Área de Asuntos Religiosos, considera alarmante que "la mayor preocupación de la Iglesia Católica es perseguir la homosexualidad en el mundo, así lo demostró cuando se opuso la despenalización mundial en la ONU en diciembre de 2008, y así lo lleva a cabo. Parece ser que somos su enemigo, probablemente por una homofobia internalizada, ya que en el interior de la Iglesia existe el mayor porcentaje de homosexualidad, sobre todo sacerdotes, religiosos y religiosas y altas jerarquías. El problema es que no pueden visibilizarlo y lo viven a escondidas o reprimen sus sentimientos, lo que provoca en muchas ocasiones mayor resentimiento y amargura hacia quien lo vive con plenitud".

Something to open your eyes

You need something to open up a new door
To show you something you seen before
But overlooked a hundred times or more

You need something to open your eyes
You need something to make it known
That it's you and no one else that owns
That spot that you're standing,
that space that you're sitting

That the world ain't got you beat
That it ain't got you licked

It can't get you crazy no matter how many
Times you might get kicked

You need something special all right
You need something special to give you hope
But hope's just a word
That maybe you said or maybe you heard
On some windy corner 'round a wide-angled curve

– Bob Dylan

True Love...

Zen Parable

Two brothers worked together on the family farm.
One was married and had a large family.

The other was single.
At the day's end, the brothers shared everything equally, produce and profit.

Then one day the single brother said to himself,
"It's not right that we should share equally the produce and the profit.
I'm alone and my needs are simple."
So each night he took a sack of grain from his bin and crept across the field between their houses, dumping it into his brother's bin.

Meanwhile, the married brother said to himself,
"It's not right that we should share the produce and the profit equally.
After all, I'm married and I have my wife and my children to look after me in years to come.
My brother has no one, and no one to take care of his future."
So each night he took a sack of grain and dumped it into his single brother's bin.

Both men were puzzled for years because their supply of grain never dwindled.
Then one dark night the two brothers bumped into each other.
Slowly it dawned on them what was happening.
They dropped their sacks and embraced one another.

How do you measure a year???

One friend of mine has this question posted as her facebook status:

"How do you measure a year?"

And the answer just poped up from my inner me... 

By tears...

Tears of Fear 
(if you are still here then you are courageous enough cos you have moved on)

Tears of Happiness 
(I cannot conceive real happiness without tears, your soul needs to leave your body cos has become too big)

Tears of Sadness 
(Those that tell you that you have given everything, even if things didn't go as you wanted, you are sure you were true to yourself and you grow)

By tears, 
I will measure a year by the tears have shed...

Enjoy the song and think about the tears you have shed this year...

I am PROUDLY what I am!!!

Life's not worth a dam
Till I can say
I am what I am

I am what I am
I am my own special creation
So come take a look
Give me the hook
Or the ovation
It's my world
That I want to have a little pride
My world
And it's not a place I have to hide in
Life's not worth a dam
Till I can say
I am what I am

I am what I am
I don't want praise I don't want pity
I bang my own drum
Some think it's noise I think it's pretty
And so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle
Why not see things from a different angle
Your life is a shame
Till you can shout out I am what I am

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the aces sometimes the deuces
It's one life and there's no return and no deposit
One life so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a dam till you can shout out
I am what I am

I am what I am

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck sometimes the aces sometimes the deuces
It's one life and there's no return and no deposit
One life so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a dam till you can shout out
I am what I am

I am I am I am good
I am I am I am strong
I am I am I am worthy
I am I am I belong

I am

I am

Who whoooo etc.
I am

I am I am I am useful
I am I am I am true
I am I am somebody
I am as good as you

Yes I am

My Way, Always My Way!

And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and ev'ry highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way,
"Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way"

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!

Yes, it was my way

Hard Love


Why do always the most beautiful souls find love so hard?
question asked - answer given

"Because they just LOVE in another way, like level up. They can sacrifice themselves but not Love principles. They call with the word Love only the Love itself and nothing else. They love because they do - not because they need to.
That is why."

I dunno if it is the wrong or the right answer
I just know that you were my saviour when I had lost hope
now it is my turn to be yours
and that what goes around really does come around.

Self Portrait in Greens

Long time since I didn't take some markers and let them flow freely while I think...

Part of my new responsibilities at work at connected with thinking. Processes of innovation and re-creation. Disruptive and peaceful at the same time.

Today I decided to dedicate one hour to that thinking processes, saw some markers on the table, grabbed a sheet and...

When I came back from my unconscious divagations, there I was, a picture of me. As I feel within, I guess.

Need to take some time to grasp the questions that arise from the PAINt.

It is lunch break now...

I am going to see the sea.

Our Beginning!!!

Rita Redshoes - The Beginning Song

You came to this world
to see what i've done
and it's fine
so come and let's start
i'll give you all my heart
this time

don't walk away
cause baby i will love you more
i have this feeling
you're who i've been looking for
so close your eyes and read the signs
it's time to soar

you came to this world
to change what i've done
it's alright
but now you must dare
you can't pretend you're there
if you're mine

don't walk away
cause baby i will love you more
i have this feeling
you're who i've been looking for
so close your eyes and read the signs
it's time to soar

don't walk away
cause baby i will love you more
i have this feeling
you're who i've been looking for
don't turn away it's time to stay
there's nothing more

Why don't you tell me what to do?

You want to drink my soul
'Till your heart is full
What happens when it's full and it splashes?
You've built all these rooftops
And painted them all in blue
If all this set just burns up will you paint the ashes?

Do you really want to see?
Because I'll let you in
With me

You shiver when the wind blows
Through doors that lost their keys
There's too little to rescue, too little to hang on to
I thought that maybe we could try to
Clear and rebuild this haunted home
I'll be glad to help you just tell me what to do

Why don't you tell me what to do?
Maybe you're scared too
I've been here before
Next thing you'll see
You'll fell
So small

I will disappoint you
And I don't care if I do
I belong to those who got shattered, battered,
Bruises and scars that I've hidden you could never heal
This grey house where I come from
Some great love will tear it down
If you no longer love me why should it matter?

Tell me why should it matter?
I can't ask you to stay
I can't find the words to say
Why don't you just leave?

Just leave.

When the rain is blowing in your face,
and the whole world is on your case,
I could offer you a warm embrace
to make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear,
and there is no one there to dry your tears,
I could hold you for a million years
to make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet,
but I would never do you wrong.
I've known it from the moment that we met,
no doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry; I'd go black and blue,
I'd go crawling down the avenue.
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
to make you feel my love.

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
and on the highway of regret.
Though winds of change are throwing wild and free,
you ain't seen nothing like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
Nothing that I wouldn't do.
Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
to make you feel my love.

Room for Rent available in Lisbon NOW!!!

Hi there!

There are several bus stops all around the flat to go almost everywhere directly. It is a very convenient place to live.
The room is big, couple bed, also small desk and chair, closet and three drawers storage.

There is wireless Internet, cable TV and all bills are included, so you just pay the rent and that’s it! There is a spare laptop also to be used only by you at home if you don’t have a PC.

This is a three rooms apartment with one toilet and fully equipped kitchen. Living room with a 116 cm plasma TV COOL eh?!

I am originally Venezuelan but have Portuguese nationality, have been living abroad for the past 7 years, so I am quite eager to keep the international environment around me.

I am a good cook and I am used to cook for all people in the flat at least three times a week, if you are looking forward to learn some cooking skills, this is definitely a cool place to move in.

Hugs from the Distance

The smell of his body getting trapped in my nose, like a perfume of youth that takes away all my deceptions, my lost battles and my bitter perceptions.

The petition of closeness that arrived without explanations and without any longer reasons, 
moved my body, 
my soul and my thoughts, 
and made me run at his encounter.

The untold things that vibrate in the air when we are together, 
and resonate in our darkest desires and lightest feelings, 
bringing us closer when we start to be miles apart.

The hugs from the distance, 
that come and go in the messages we exchange, 
keep our skins together and I am not sure if I am here or I am there.

The lack of expectations, 
that allows me to stay put in the present and feel, 
with the immensity of my heart and the intensity of my need, 
that I am made of flesh.

The barriers that have been abolished, 
the paradigms that have been smashed and the obstacles that have been vanished, 
have transformed that distance in a field of flowers in the middle of this spring.

The songs that we’ve shared, 
the words that we’ve written and wishes we have let fly in the air gifted me with the key to a room not often visited in the inner parts of my Self, 
a room where I have sit to take a coffee, admire the panorama and wait for him to knock on the door.

About Being Gay...

I remember my mother correcting my posture when I was a kid...
Hitting me in the hands when I gesture more than needed...
She never said it was girly...
She said I looked like a bird... Those birds that eat garbage...

I remember planning to kill myself.

I was too coward to do it.
Even though I tried several times while in my teen days...
I am one of those lucky ones that made it through even if my parents kicked me out of home...

There are many that never make it through.

Today I have a good relationship with my parents, however this is a conversation that is totally avoided.
That makes me sad.
But at least I am alive.
And I learn how to "truly" live life.

A movie totally worth watching!

Finding The Way Home...

For years I have kept on the moving...
For years I have running around...

Sometimes running from something...
Sometimes running towards something...

Something that was never clear...
Something that still is not clear...

The good thing is that now.
Every day.
I run my way home.
I have found home.
Here you have some pictures of the journey.
The journey is a real bus trip.
Home it has found a place.

I am at peace.
I still run.
I still run from and towards something.
Something that is not clear.

But then I get home and I breath.
I have home.

How and how much we love?

One day, the son asks the father:

"Daddy, will you run the marathon with me?"

The father says yes, and they run their first marathon together.

Another day, the son asks again the father if he wanted to run a marathon with him, and the father answers yes again.

Certain day the son asks the father:

"Daddy, will you run the 'ironman' with me? 'Ironman' is harder, we'll have to swim 4 Km, run a bike for 180 Km and run 42 Km... But I wanna do it..."

The father, without hesitation says yes...


This is the way I believe love is...
This is the way I wanna love someone...
This is the kind of love that I have repressed inside me,
that is killing me and asphyxiating me,
asking me to let it go out and be.

The Language of Letting Go

The language of letting go is releasing the energies of the old. 

The language of letting go is about giving ourselves permission to experience and express our feelings. 

The language of letting go is being present in the moment to receive all the wonderful opportunities that life is bringing to us. 

We are the light that has the power to set ourselves free.

I understand now why the light of others has come into my life. 
Light seeks out life. 
It is no wonder why we believe the dead search for the comfort of light. 
It isn't to torture with reckless indifference and disregard. 
It was to cause us to pause, take stock and notice. 

He's standing in front of me. 
He saying to me, breathe. 
The He is you. 
The He is me. 
My god, I get it now. 
He's light is cascading all over me. 
I feel it. 
Can you?

Now I recognize why our embrace left me shivering long after. 
His light re-ignited my internal flame. 
The question no longer begs to be asked. 
And all I can do is release tears.

Meeting people online...

When you meet people online:

When is the right time to ask them out?
Should you wait for them to ask you out?
Why to lose time behind screens and keyboards?
What's the fear?

Do you know?
I don't...
I am getting frustrated...

When we start to get noticed!!!

I am very happy today...

One very recognized ecotravel blogger wrote about weekeego in his blog...
It is awesome when your work start to get noticed and recognized by people!!!
More when your work is something you totally LOVE and BELIEVE in :)

His thoughts about weekeego are awesome, check it out here.

I really like the adopted approach as it is community oriented and puts forward the experience of travelling first. I have said here several times that the most important thing regarding ecotourism is to establish as much as possible a true connection with the locals and to get a sense of the place. These values are utterly shared by the people behind weekeego.

If you want to support me in making weekeego known, please make a post in your blog about us and our local community partners, or just twit our url...

I will appreciate that a lot!!!

You can also join our facebook group here, or become a fan here.

Santa Barbara Te Proteja!

Santa Bárbara, que sois mais forte que as torres das fortalezas e a violência dos furacões,
fazei que os raios não me atinjam,
os trovões não me assustem e o troar dos canhões não me abalem a coragem e a bravura.

Ficai sempre ao meu lado para que possa enfrentar de fronte erguida e rosto sereno todas as tempestades e batalhas de minha vida,
para que,
vencedor de todas as lutas,
com a consciência do dever cumprido,
possa agradecer a vós,
minha protetora,
e render graças a Deus,
criador do céu,
da terra e da natureza:
este Deus que tem poder de dominar o furor das tempestades e abrandar a crueldade das guerras.

Por Cristo,
nosso Senhor.


Santa Bárbara bendita,
que teñiste con la púrpura de tu sangre tu casta virginidad por amor al Señor,
defiéndeme de las tempestades,
hecatombes y calamidades todas de este mundo.

Líbrame de la muerte repentina.
Intercede por mí al Señor para que me ayude a lograr la prosperidad en esta vida,
a vivir en santa amistad y llegar al fin de mis días en paz en su divina gracia.

Why somethings don't make sense...

Life is full of those little details...

Why is it called Alcoholics Anonymous when the first thing you do is stand up and say,
'My name is Bob, and I am an alcoholic'?

Have you ever felt the tears that cannot be seen???

I listen, and listen, and listen...
No tear-tear, that seems too cheap for the emotions this song has brought...
Maybe a tear-tear that cannot be seen...
As many lately in my life.

Music and lyrics by Bruce Springsteen

Two, three, four

Have you ever seen a one trick pony in the field so happy and free?
If you've ever seen a one trick pony then you've seen me
Have you ever seen a one-legged dog making his way down the street?
If you've ever seen a one-legged dog then you've seen me

Then you've seen me, I come and stand at every door
Then you've seen me, I always leave with less than I had before
Then you've seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me can you ask for anything more?

Have you ever seen a scarecrow filled with nothing but dust and wheat?
If you've ever seen that scarecrow then you've seen me
Have you ever seen a one-armed man punching at nothing but the breeze?
If you've ever seen a one-armed man then you've seen me

Then you've seen me, I come and stand at every door
Then you've seen me, I always leave with less than I had before
Then you've seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me can you ask for anything more?

These things that have comforted me, 

I drive away
This place that is my home I cannot stay
My only faith's in the broken bones and bruises I display

Have you ever seen a one-legged man trying to dance his way free?
If you've ever seen a one-legged man then you've seen me

The Price of Love...

Just saw this movie and found this spanish song in a video...

This is how I feel now...

I know and believe that love will knock at the door of my life...

I have already payed the price.

La mas bella historia
The most beautiful story

que se pueda contar
that you can share

lleva escrito el dolor
it has written the pain

que produce un amor

que nadie entenderá.
that nobody will understand.

Siempre todo a escondidas
Always everything hidden

siempre mirando atrás
always looking back

sólo la oscuridad

puede ser nuestro hogar

donde crecerá este amor.

Y no... no quiero más clases de falsa moral
And no...
I don't want more classes of false moral

que nadie es culpable por amar
nobody is guilty for loving

en mi pecho no late la razón
in my chest is not the reason what is beating

sólo el mas sincero y puro amor.
Only the purest and most sincere love.

No hay mal en el mundo
There is no evil in world

ni fuerza capaz
Neither a strength able to

que pueda este fuego apagar
turn off this fire

sólo el tiempo puede ser nuestro juez
only time will be our judge

te quise, quiero y querré.
I loved you, I love you and I will love you.

Que difícil lo nuestro

bien lo sabes, mi amor.
You know that well, my love.

We have inherited the ability to heal...

Thanks friends...

Thanks all...

We get broken, we do...

It is part of who we are, human beings...

But yes, definitely we have inherited the ability to heal.
And we learn that with practice...

I heal...

Beauties don't always skip tragedy, someone recently told me, and I realize that is true, that I am a beauty, and that I cannot skip tragedy while living a life like mine.

I feel blessed for meeting such amazing people in my life, people that will never heal me, because healing comes from within, but people that will do whatever it is is their hands to hold me through.

To them I extend my lights and my shadows.
My lights to use them when their path becomes dark, and my shadows to understand the dangers of the journey.

I am, as always.

But today I understood that I am because even if I feel lonely,
I am not alone, I am never alone!

My fingers are freezing and my heart is a fire place.

Come sit next....

You will feel at home, because I am at home,
and I am going to keep it!

Be a Fraud!!!

Excerpts from the last Madness of My Mind by Stuart Knight.

"Stuart, when someone takes a path that others are afraid
to walk down, there are always moments when they feel like a fraud.
It's on those days that you have to stand in the shower and cry
your private tears and then keep going."

Moses Znaimer

I knew exactly what tears he talked about. But, now I know that every tear I have cried in
the shower has been worth the tears of joy I've cried standing in the sun.

Be a fraud. 
Be an impostor. 
Enter a world that you don't belong
so that you can realize that you belong there!

Much love,



I truly advise you to subscribe to his newsletters...

Love tons,

They Can't Light You Off...

This is a song from my teen days that a good friend sent me today.

I used to sang this at school.
I have lived under this premise.
I am glad life is so wise...

En los ojos de tus hijos,
In the eyes of your children,

han llorado los amigos
friends have cried

Como el rio hacia el mar y hoy el rio esta crecido
Like the river flowing to the sea, and today the river is flooded

Les dolia la verdad,
Truth use to hurt them,

y cerraron tu camino
and they closed your way

Jugadores de alla donde sortean los destinos
Players from "there" where destinies are sorted out

Pero cada mañana amanece
But every morning it dawns

el mundo sigue girando
the world keeps spinning

Todas las flores florecen, tarde o temprano
All flowers blossom, sooner or later

Eres luz y sigues brillando, no te pueden apagar
You're light and you leep shining, they can't light you off

Eres fuego y sigues ardiendo, no te pueden apagar
You're fire and you keep on burning, they can't light you off

No se tapa el sol con un dedo, no te pueden apagar
The sun can't be hidden with a finger, they can't light you off

Por mas que traten
It doesn't matter how much they try

No te pueden apagar
they can't light you off

Como el viento que no vemos
Like the wind that we can't see

Como piedras en el rio, no te pueden callar
Like stones in the river, they can't shut you up

Tus palabras no se han ido
Your words are not gone

Y no pueden apagar, tanto fuego que encendiste
and they can't turn off so much fire that you have lighted up

Brillaras mas alla, no hay razon para estar triste
You will shine beyond, 
there is no reason to be sad!
