This is a poem I had read in 1985 and enjoyed so much the style and its brilliancy, that I wrote it down. Today, I want to share it with my faithful readers 🙂

Speed
—–

Speed is synonymous with drunkenness
Stupidity is synonymous with weakness
Life is synonymous with tenderness
Death is synonymous with wisdom
—————
If speed and stupidity become one
Life and death form a whole
—————
For drunkenness is a weakness
And tenderness is a wisdom

Jean-Yves Remiche ( Bastogne )

Vitesse
——-

La vitesse est synonyme d’ivresse
La bêtise est synonyme de faiblesse
La vie est synonyme de tendresse
La mort est synonyme de sagesse
—————–
Si la vitesse et la bêtise ne font qu’un
La vie et la mort forment un tout
—————–
Car l’ivresse est une faiblesse
Et la tendresse une sagesse

Jean-Yves Remiche ( Bastogne )

I composed this poem in 1989. That is really way back. As usual, I adapted it to the time that has passed and the lessons I have learned along the way.
One of them, that life is not black or white, it has its moments of unexpected events thrown at us which we have to try and take… with a pinch of salt.

The biggest luxury would be to be able to see it with perspective. With the knowledge that things come and go, they don’t stay forever. To perceive the
blueprint of life and grasp the bigger picture. What may seem huge normally will quickly shrink with such acumen.

That’s when we can proudly feel and shout to the world that we have reached a certain level of wisdom. 🙂

I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
Have a lovely day!

Facets of life
—————

Happy day
Day of pain
Day of riches
Love and drunkenness

Flash of worries
Life of wishes
We love and cherish
The captured second

Life of delirium
Spells of insomnia
We divert and escape
Boredom that follows

Life of values
Mountains of sweetness
Bouts of misfortune
Life without shame

If I was LIFE
Out of the window I’d toss
To children weeping
Vouchers of happiness

So they should have…
A day with flavor
A present without grief
A season where they’d laugh
An eternal paradise

Facettes de la vie
——————–

Jour de bonheur
Jour de douleur
Jour de richesse
D’amour et d’ivresse

Un clin de soucies
Vie d’envies
On aime et on chéri
La seconde conquise

Vie de délires
Périodes d’insomnies
On s’étourdit et fuit
L’ennui qui suit

Vie de valeurs
Montagne de douceur
Phases de malheurs
Vie sans pudeur

Si la vie j’étais
Par la fenêtre j’enverrais
Aux enfants qui pleurent
Des bons de bonheur

Pour qu’ils aient…

Un jour de saveur
Un présent sans douleurs
Une saison où l’on rit
Un éternel paradis
