L’Étranger

A most dreaded fear often approaches

It sets its small feet on this earth

And still its footsteps are powerful

Quelle bizarrerie!

***

You hope to fall asleep at night

Wait, behold that rare sight

Of a creature lurking

Presque un alien.

***

In the morning, you awaken

Bizarre courage strengthens your bones

Even though much has been taken

C’est drôle, n’est-ce pas?

***

You pray it won’t return

Try and focus on what can be won

But it clings to you, a second skin almost

Ce n’est pas un inconnu dans la rue.

***

What do you want to do to stop it?

Can you embrace the stranger

Maybe even forget the oppressing danger

Il habite au fond de toi.

***

Abandon your fears

Silence your hesitations

As not all is worthy of your anticipations

Salue cet étranger.

Il te montrera le chemin.
