We’ve decided to be who we are. Sometimes been taught to feel how we feel. Or even been chosen to love how we love. Passionately. Chosen how, I don’t know. But by whom, I do. Palmeiras.
We are what we are. And as glory is ours, so is defeat. Humiliation. Failure. We do good but not good enough. We work hard but not hard enough. We are Palmeiras, Palmeiras are us. Change only comes from within. We haven’t changed fast enough.
As long as there is a shiver of light, we fight. When darkness surrounds us completely, we fight. We’ve been there before. “Where we shouldn’t be”, some say. “No place for giants”, some say. “Where we should be”, I say. Because we deserved no better. And now must again prove our worth. Rise, as before. And hopefully, learn. We haven’t learned fast enough.
Tasting the cane we are. Again. We can’t bounce back fast enough.
