Poem I received today.

Pablo Neruda
Queda prohibido llorar sin aprender,
levantarte un día sin saber que hacer,
tener miedo a tus recuerdos.
Queda prohibido no sonreír a los problemas,
no luchar por lo que quieres,
abandonarlo todo por miedo,
no convertir en realidad tus sueños.
Queda prohibido no demostrar tu amor,
hacer que alguien pague tus deudas y el mal humor.
Queda prohibido dejar a tus amigos,
no intentar comprender lo que vivieron juntos,
llamarles solo cuando los necesitas.
Queda prohibido no ser tú ante la gente,
fingir ante las personas que no te importan,
hacerte el gracioso con tal de que te recuerden,
olvidar a toda la gente que te quiere.
Queda prohibido no hacer las cosas por ti mismo,
no creer en Dios y hacer tu destino,
tener miedo a la vida y a sus compromisos,
no vivir cada día como si fuera un ultimo suspiro.
Queda prohibido echar a alguien de menos sin
alegrarte, olvidar sus ojos, su risa,
todo porque sus caminos han dejado de abrazarse,
olvidar su pasado y pagarlo con su presente.
Queda prohibido no intentar comprender a las personas,
pensar que sus vidas valen mas que la tuya,
no saber que cada uno tiene su camino y su dicha.
Queda prohibido no crear tu historia,
no tener un momento para la gente que te necesita,
no comprender que lo que la vida te da, también te lo quita.
Queda prohibido no buscar tu felicidad,
no vivir tu vida con una actitud positiva,
no pensar en que podemos ser mejores,
no sentir que sin ti este mundo no sería igual.


This is my humble translation to the poem...

Pablo Neruda
It is prohibited to cry without learning,
waking up without knowing what to do.
and be afraid to your memories.
Is prohibited not to smile to the problems,
not to fight for what you want,
and abandon everything for fear
and not to make yourdreams come true
It is prohibited not to show your love,

to make someone pay your debts and the bad temper.
It is prohibited to left out your friends,
and not to understand what you lived together
and called them when they need you.
It is prohibited not to be in front of people,
to fake with people you do not really care,
to make yourself the funny one just to be remembered,
to forget the people that loves you.
It is prohibited not to do the things by yourself,
not to believe in God and not to create your fate,
to be afraid of life and its commitments,
not to live everyday as if it were the last breath.
It is prohibited to miss someone without being happy for,
forget his or her eyes,
his or her smile,
everything just because your paths are not embracing any longer
To forget his or her past and make it pay in the present time.
It is prohibited not to try to understand people,
to think that their lives are more valuable than yours
not to know that everybody has it own path and joy.
It is prohibited not to create your own history,
not to have a moment for the people needing for you,
not to understand that what life gives you,
is taken away by life also.
It is prohibited not to look for happines,
not to live your life with a positive attitude,
not to think We can be better,
Not to feel that without you this world would not be the same.


Have a great day!!..JESUS ANTONIO
