Para que não restem dúvidas

Porque há coisas que têm de ser ditas para que não restem dúvidas. Porque olhando para trás nem acredito que aquela mulher era eu. Porque de repente consigo ver tudo com muita clareza, vá se lá saber porquê… Porque esperei muito que este dia chegasse.

E porque não consigo pôr tudo em palavras tão bem quanto a Lauryn Hill…:

As I look at what I've done
The type of life that I've lived
How many things I pray, father will forgive
One situation involved a young man
He was the ocean and I was the sand
He stole my heart like a thief in the night
Dulled my senses, blurred my sight

I used to love him
but now I don't

I chose a road of passion and pain
Sacrificed too much and waited in vain
Gave up my power, ceased being queen
Addicted to love like the drug of a fiend

Torn and confused, wasted and used
Reached the crossroad, which path would I choose
Stuck and frustrated I waited, debated
For something to happen that just wasn't fated
Thought what I wanted was something I needed
When momma said no I just should have heeded
Misled I bled till the poison was gone
And out of the darkness arrived the sweet dawn

I used to love him
but now I don't

Father you saved me and showed me that life
Was much more than being some foolish man's wife
Showed me that love was respect and devotion
Greater than planets deeper than oceans
My soul was weary but now it's replenished
Content because that part of my life is finished
