The dignity that was always yours (La dignité qui t’appartenait depuis toujours)

Cities & suburbs are built then left abandoned… Humans too sometimes.
The similarities struck me as I was writing this poem & inspired me to
mingle those two for you to figure out which is what…

Neglected by your electors
Dragged in the mud, in tears
By your closest, humiliated
And robbed of all dignity,
Alone you cry…

Hitherto unaware that darkness
Puts reality into perspective
And shadows determines angles,
Shapes and colors. Hence, your
Equilibrium and composure rarely
Found in those still oblivious
To the gift of refinement…
Today, as you filter a past
Never chosen you apprehend

Darkness as the bright star
Aglow in the murkiest allowing
Objectivity & awarding yourself
With the dignity that was
always yours…

——–

Délaisser par tes élécteurs
Traîner dans la boue, en larmes
Par tes proches, humilier et
Dépouiller de toute dignité
Seule tu pleures…

Jusqu’alors ignorant que
L’obscurité met la réalité
En perspective et que l’ombre
Détermine les angles, formes
Et couleurs. D’où ton équilibre
Et sang froid rarement trouver
Dans ceux encore inconscient
Du don de raffinement…
Alors que tu filtres aujourd’hui
Un passé jamais choisi tu
Appréhendes les ténèbres
Comme la brilliante étoile

Embrasée dans ce qui est de
Plus trouble permettant une
Objectivité et te décernant
La dignité qui était
Toujours tienne…
