Inspirational Song Alo Lau Foe

I find this song to be inspirational. It is in Samoan. The lyrics are below, along with a translation into English. For me, the message of the song is that it is possible to perform enormous feats. Even though there will always be challenging circumstances which test one’s resolve, staggering goals can be achieved. This song is one more reminder to endure beyond one’s doubts, to maintain a strong will, to embolden and empower oneself, to find encouragement, and to tap into one’s inner strength.

ALO LAU FOE

Sau folauga mai anamua,
To mai timuga, faapea le la,
Ta fia inu vai, fia taumafa ai,
Ta fia vaai atu i se motu tuufua.Oi aue!
Alo! Alo! Alo lau foe!
Taunuu lou faamoemoe!Oi aue!
Alo! Alo! Alo lau foe!
Taunuu lou faamoemoe!

Aue se la’i ua agiagi mai,
Se’i gape foe, ae malolo ai,
Ua lagona fo’i le vaivai,
Ae faamalosi mai pea le tautai.

Oi aue!
Alo! Alo! Alo lau foe!
Taunuu lou faamoemoe!

Oi aue!
Alo! Alo! Alo lau foe!
Taunuu lou faamoemoe!

The sea voyage is coming since long ago,
The heavy rain is falling on me, and so is the sun,
I want to drink water, I want to eat,
I long to look upon a desert island.(Groaning)
Stroke! Stroke! Stroke your paddle!
You will reach your destination!(Groaning)
Stroke! Stroke! Stroke your paddle!
You will reach your destination!

Oh, what a stiff wind that’s blowing and blowing at me,
Let me rest my paddle, and rest myself,
I also feel tiredness/weakness,
But the captain still encourages/empowers me.

(Groaning)
Stroke! Stroke! Stroke your paddle!
You will reach your destination!

(Groaning)
Stroke! Stroke! Stroke your paddle!
You will reach your destination!

Who will you be when you unlock your potential?
