Poetry written by 1 L1 and 1 L2 students
One night, I hear knocking at my door
A snowman without his nose, a carrot on the floor:
He wants me to keep company, he is afraid in the night
We talk all night through, and play chess with a queen without her knight.
More time passes. He’s beginning to melt and the wind clears out, slowly
Let it blow, let it snow, let it snow. And then I see him vanish gradually…
AN EMPTY BOWL
An empty bowl expected the rain
To fill its lack of chainless love
An empty bowl expected the wind
To hug his unconscious mind
An empty bowl expected the sun
To be a little lonely and quiet
An empty bowl expected the storm
And after anger, love was born again
An empty bowl expected the rainbow
To believe in love and eliminate shadows
An empty bowl expected the clouds
To live in love without doubt
Dream is false, it is present when I sleep
In my everyday thoughts
Dream is real , intense moment
It is like a wound, a sprain
Dream ‘s a challenge , it influences our choices
It makes you happy for a brief moment
But it is impossible for me to make it real
Fly, go on, fly
Anyone would think, to look at you
That your mind was like a slave
Or your heart was depraved.
Go on, spread your wings
Take a look at that orphan,
Or that battered woman.
Where’s your torment ?
Fly, escape from yourself.
Leave, forget your problems,
Overcome your poverty.
Lie down on your cloud
And in a peaceful atmosphere
Taste life without bitterness
Out through your open soul.
And fly, remember, fly,
Give your life some greatness,
Fly over everyone,
Do it now, go on, FLY !
Respect is the sense of consideration,
Consideration towards somebody,
Respect is the sense of veneration,
To think a lot of somebody.
Respect is a value deeper than simple politeness,
For all skins colours,
But many people think they know what respect is,
But they don’t know.
