“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions”
Rainer Maria Rilke quote


Tu paies mes cotisations à la vie
Sans cesse, sans me demander.
Pour quelle raison dois-tu
Me traiter comme une feuille fragile
Qui tombera de l’arbre
Le long d’une trajectoire
Prescrite par la volonté du vent ?
Laissez-moi atterrir où j’avais déjà choisi,
Avant que tu ne me consommes.
Je veux danser toute seule,
Autour d’un esprit qui possède encore
Un véritable battement de coeur.

You pay my contributions to life
Without ceasing, without asking me.
For what reason must you
Treat me like a fragile leaf
Who will fall from the tree
Along a path
Prescribed by the will of the wind?
Let me land where I had already chosen,
Before you consumed me.
I want to dance all alone,
Around a mind that still possesses
A real heartbeat.
