It’s a New Year (2015)

While this new year is mystery, The last one has become history. I’m first happy I made it throw, And more happy that you did too. I made it throw another year, That once was mystery and fear. Now I have lived it all, it’s over and gone I’m left with memories, a lot of…

Le prochain village

Une question d’un voyageur à un sage à la sortie d’un village:– Pourriez-vous me dire à combien d’heure de marche est le prochain village? Le sage ne répondit pas. Le voyageur, offensé, continua son chemin. Quand il parcourra deux cents mètres, le sage cria:– Le prochain village est à trois heures de marche ! Le voyageur lui demanda…

Not

You are not your age, Nor the size of clothes you wear, You are not a weight, Or the colour of your hair. You are not your name, Or the dimples in your cheeks, You are all the books you read, And all the words you speak, You are your croaky morning voice, And the…

Love is the way

Sa mère entra et lui demanda d’une voix douce et d’un beau sourire : ”Chérie, pourrais-tu donner une de tes deux pommes à maman?” La jeune fille leva les yeux vers sa mère pendant quelques secondes, puis elle mordit soudainement dans une pomme puis…

A Caring Friend

Exposing your wounds, expressing what you feel, To a caring friend that helps you heal, Warm enough, to understand what you endure, With a tender hand, that reaches with the cure, Somehow, letting it out, eases the pain, Kind words are felt like a peaceful rain.   (By Saber BEN MIMOUN,09/08/2015, for my Friend Héli)

bad news or very bad news ?

Doctor: I have some bad news and some very bad news. Patient: Well, you might as well give me the bad news first. Doctor: I’m afraid the lab called with your test results. They said you only have 24 hours to live. Patient: 24 HOURS! That’s terrible! WHAT on earth could be WORSE news? Doctor:…

Wisdom

When I have ceased to break my wings Against the faultiness of things, And learned that compromises wait Behind each hardly opened gate, When I have looked Life in the eyes, Grown calm and very coldly wise, Life will have given me the Truth, And taken in exchange my youth. [Sara Teasdale]
