The English translation of Scelgo – My Choice:
“I choose not to be afraid
to go beyond, beyond these walls
I choose to give wings and wind
To every breath, to every moment of mine
I choose not to be afraid
Not to fear borders and colors
I choose to throw my own smile
Beyond the fence between Heaven and Earth.“
