One of the songs in the musical, which takes place in Washington Heights (NYC) and in a prominently Latino area, is called "Paciencia y Fe" which translates to Patience and Faith.
A couple of weeks up, a bit of sun, and a bit of reality later I'm telling myself that good things come to those who wait.
I had been talking to a boy, we went out twice, and now it seems he's just not that into me. Paciencia y fe.
I lost out on something I really wanted. Fingers uncrossed. Paciencia y fe.
My roommate sent me this today:
Hope is not pretending that troubles don't exist.
It is the trust that they will not last forever,
that hurts will be healed and difficulties overcome.
It is faith that a source of strength and renewal lies within,
to lead us through the dark into sunshine.
For those of you who are in need of a bit of hope, I hope these words are a bit of comfort to you. Paciencia y fe.
