Jorge Luis Borges – Y Uno Aprende

Después de un tiempo,
uno aprende la sutil diferencia
entre sostener una mano
y encadenar un alma,
y uno aprende que el amor
no significa acostarse
y una compañía no significa seguridad
y uno empieza a aprender.
Que los besos no son contratos y los regalos no son promesas
y uno empieza a aceptar sus derrotas con la cabeza alta y los ojos abiertos y uno aprende a construir
todos sus caminos en el hoy,
porque el terreno de mañana
es demasiado inseguro para planes…
y los futuros tienen una forma de
caerse en la mitad.
Y después de un tiempo
uno aprende que si es demasiado,
hasta el calorcito del sol quema.
Así que uno planta su propio jardín
y decora su propia alma, en lugar
de esperar a que alguien le traiga flores. Y uno aprende que realmente puede aguantar,
que uno realmente es fuerte,
que uno realmente vale,
y uno aprende y aprende…
y con cada día uno aprende.

After a while, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul
You learn that love doesn’t mean leaning, and that company doesn’t mean security
And you begin to learn that kisses are not contracts and gifts are not promises
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open
With a grace of a woman, not the grief of a child
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight
After a while you learn that even too much sunshine can burn you
You plant your own garden and decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers
And you learn that you can really endure
That you are really strong and that you really have worth
And you learn and learn
