Lady May - Lecci??n aprendida


by Chris-Paul


 

my girl, Lady May, plucked up the courage to show up at the NAMAs, albeit looking sad and apologetic. Gone were the fire and tiger ambitions, the propensity to stir up things and her tendency to imagine herself in the lead role. She managed to fake a smile here and there but it was obvious that regret was really eating away at her.
Used to being the epicenter of the show, she appeared to be a shadow, or a ghost from the past. It was really brave of her to show up. I commend her on that, because bravery has always been her thing.
Though she gets carried away with flirtations and the good that comes with being a public figure sometimes, Lady May has always been a good person. So I hope whatever happened last year is just a lesson learnt. In Spanish we say, ‘Importa cómo es grande usted consigue en la vida, usted todavía puede ser demasiado grande para su puentes.’  It loosely translates as, ‘No matter how big you get, you can still be too big for your bridges’.
