This poem was inspired by family feuds and has no political insinuation.

A soul liberated
——————–

Fugitive of your house
Of your roots, from a
War of words, they
Lurk behind a facade
Waving the flag of
Innocence, of alleged
Love, insinuating disgust
By a hasty and confined
Interpretation of the
Forbidden apple as of
A soiled banner…
——————–
A cease-fire harbored
By illusions built on
A house of cards collapsed
By the simple breath of
Intolerance and these
Weaknesses resurface,
Sainthood as a pretext,
Finished off by the Coup
De grâce, exploiting the
Vulnerability, threatening
Out of revenge, trampling
And soiling a patched past…
———————————-
These trials became your
Strength, have plowed the
Too embedded furrows
By apathy, by a life
Devoid of interest
Rising from the ashes
Of a suspended soul
The illusion of bliss,
Built by repetitive
Movements. You
Detected in the
Obscurity, the Manna
That fell upon you
The reason and rational
Motive of a highly
Guarded plan.
You have revealed
A light usually hidden.
Perceived and exposed
Divinity among
The storms of your

Tumultuous life.

Une âme libéré
——————

Fugitif de ta maison
De tes raçines par une
Guerre de mots, ils se
Tapissent derrière une
Façade, brandissant le
Drapeau de l’innocence
D’amour prétendu
Insinuant le dégoût
Par une interpretation
Hative et borner de la
Pomme défendu comme
D’un étendard souiller…
—————————–
Un cessez-le-feu bercer
D’illusions bâtis en château
De cartes écroulé par le simple
Souffle de l’intolérance et,
Ressurgit ces faiblesses,
Sainteté comme prétexte
Achever par le coup de grâce
Exploitant la vulnérabilité,
Menaçant par vengeance
Piétinant et souillant
Un passé rapiécé…
————————–
Ces épreuves, devenu ta force
Ont labouré les sillons, trop
Incruster par l’apathie, par
Une vie dénuée d’intérét
Renaissant des cendres,
D’une âme en sursis
L’illusion d’une félicité
Construit de mouvements
Répétitifs, tu as détecté
Dans l’obscurité, la Manne
Qui t’est tombé. La raison,
Le motif rationnel d’un plan
Hautement gardé. Tu t’est révélé
Une lumière habituellement
Cachée. Perçu et exposé la
Divinité parmi les tempêtes

De ta vie mouvementée
