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…

Video:The Space We Need: An Introvert Wakes Up, Slows Down and Starts Living According to Her True Nature


I seem to find more & more posts I feel the need to reblog. This is one of them. A perfect five minutes to watch if you are part of the fifty percent of introverts and if you are not, you will understand the friends you have who are, even more 🙂

Don’t explain your philosophy. Embody it. ~ Epictetus

Something new for space2live… a short film (5 minutes, it’s worth it).  A visual to enhance the many words spilled on the pages of this site. Through filmmaker, Nic Askew’s, beautiful lens the experience, rather than the explanation, of an introvert is captured and shared in a soul biography. You’ll feel the honesty and vulnerability.  Enjoy.

How did you like the visual message vs. a written one? Was there a part of the film that spoke to you?
