I was rereading a piece I’ve started to write 4 yrs ago and promised myself that I would finish… which I never did. I tried to finish it today and instead of poetry came random thoughts in prose. Thoughts about convinctions and the importance of not loosing sight if of our own convictions, even when they are unpopular. After I also had in mind the fact that we need to be able to defend our convictions and opinions without feeling the need to attack the people we are expressing them to. No matter, how passionate and perhaps emotional, we might become about our ideals and convictions, we should try to resist the tendancy to impose them to others. Even when they disagree. They have the right to disagree, we might try to convince them with words but we can’t impose our ideas. Respect is another essential concept in discussions that we need to keep in mind and that we tend to loose sight of. I will end the same way, I started, have the courage of your convictions. Other will respect you more then if you jump on a bandwagon for the sake of popularity and fitting in.
Here’s the uncomplete piece…perhaps it’s faith lol! It’s in English and French go figure…perhaps my mind gets lost between languages.
I don’t know about you…
Mais il y en a ras-le bol des prêchi-prêcha
Ces plus loyalistes que le roi
Qui se donnent des grands airs
De faux airs
They must not have
mirrors in their homes
Ils tentent de masquer leurs insécurités
Ils jouent un rôle
Tel un acteur d’un film de série B
Arrivant à peine à cacher leurs tourments
Ils jouent au saint Intel
Vous prêche la bonne parole
Avec mode emploi si nécessaire
If You do not follow their lead
You Will be demonized
You refused to follow THEIR rules
You are forever tagged
Ne soyez pas intimidés
Se respecter n’a pas de prix
To be continued..maybe not!
