A Bit of Writing: Part 10 (I think): The New Writing I Promised

Hi everyone,

Without further ado, here is the writing I promised. I hope you like it! If not, I understand. All I ask is that make your criticisms clean and constructive, regardless of their nature. Thanks! God Bless!

As always,

Michelle

Bonsoir tout le monde,

Comme j’ai promis, la première partie de ma nouvelle écriture est ici. J’espère que vous l’aime, mais je comprends si vous ne l’aimez pas. J’invite vous ‘a faire vos critiques, mais je voudrais qu’elles seraient constructives et civiles. Merci! Dieu vous bénisse!

Comme toujours,

Michelle

Untitled/Sans Titre (M. Czarnecki and/et J. Varon)

Sometimes I go back to the days when I was kid

And I find myself missing them, wishing to be young again/

‘Cause sometimes I just want to relive when I was innocent

And didn’t have so many regrets with the passage of time…..

Then I reminisce and reflect on those days that are gone……

By the way: This is the article on which the song is based and I credited J. Varon as a co-writer for that.

Spoken Word Poetry: Anomaly: Part 4: Conclusion/ Un Poème Parlé: Anomalie: La Quatrième Partie: Conclusion

Hi everyone,

As promised I would try to do, I am posting the conclusion of Anomaly  (the English version; the French version will be up in a week or so and I will keep you posted.). Additionally, I am writing something new, the first part of which will be included in a second post. The latter work is, as of yet, untitled, but I will decide on a title when I’ve thought the writing through more.

That said, here is Anomaly in full. I hope you enjoy it, but I welcome feedback either way as long as your comments are clean and civil. God Bless!

As always.

Michelle

Bonsoir tout le monde,

Comme j’avais promis que j’essaie, je créerai un article de blog avec la conclusion du poème Anomalie (la version anglaise; la version française sera finie après une semaine.). Je créerai un article de blog pour un nouvelle poème pendant le weekend prochain aussi, mais la première partie sera sera dans un deuxième article de blog. J’espère que vous aimerez mon poème, mais, si ce n’est pas le cas, je comprends. Je demande seulement que vos commentaires sont civiles et constructives. Merci! Dieu vous bénisse!

Comme toujours,

Michelle

Anomaly

They confirmed that I was the anomaly of our diverse group

When we discussed social constructs and I told the truth./

“I’m the white, Christian, female, heterosexual, cisgender one,

So I’m probably the anomaly here”- sure enough, I was./

Then we went right back to our friendly discussion and banter

Though I found myself disengaged as I pondered the matter/
Indeed, I stood out from the rest, for I live quite a bit differently,

But at least I’m glad we get along, and more so to be the anomaly./

So it’s no wonder sometimes I feel lost in this broken, selfish world,

Living in a fallen world is difficult for this serious, old soul of a Christian girl/

Whose entire existence hinges on day-by-day living

Serving her God and King while awaiting His second coming./

I also admit I get lost sometimes

Chasing things of the world that aren’t meant to be mine/

Like the rest of us, as I am human, prone to self-preservation:

Sinful and looking for something, some peace or happiness./

Thankfully, I’ve found both in Jesus, though He never had to give them;/

What a wonderful God He is, Who loves me knowing I am imperfect!

Thus, I want to make my life a life lived in His service/

So that the world would see in me and my life the King who made them!

Thus, I acknowledge I am an alien and a stranger in this world,

Recalling I was set apart for God when I was just a little girl/

And though it isn’t easy, I’m proud to be an anomaly

Since my King, praise Him, died and rose again to give life to me!/

Indeed, I am blessed to know my God and love Him eternally

As He first loved me, even before the universe came to be./

Thus I want to live my life praising Him with all He gave me

And I’ll do that by living as a proud Anomaly. (Glory to God, that it would be!)

Sometimes….

Hi everyone,

Sometimes I’m pleasantly astonished by the views I get, especialy since I haven’t been posting as much as I would like lately. University work is very important to me right now and and I thank y’all for understanding that. That said, I promise to have something up by the weekend once again. Additionally, I will try to have completed the original/English version of Anomaly and have a French version up by Sunday evening as well.  Thank you all so much!!

God Bless, as always,

Michelle

Bonjour tout le monde,

Quelquefois, je suis étonnée dans une maniéré plaisante par le nombre des vues que je reçois, spécialement comme je n’avais pas créé autant des articles de blog comme j’avais aimé ‘a créer au moment. Mes études universitaires sont très importantes au moment et je vous remercier que vous comprenez ma situation. Cela dit, je promis ‘a créer un article de blog créatif pendant le weekend encore. En plus, j’essaierai ‘a compléter les versions anglaise (la version originale) et la version française d’Anomalie sur le soir du dimanche. Merci!

Dieu vous bénisse, comme toujours,

Michelle

Spoken Word Poetry: Anomaly: Part 3/ Un Poème Parlé: Anomalie: La Troisième Partie

Hi everyone,

Having been busy for a bit and reviewing the poem while debating whether to post it to Facebook- or, rather, the poem as it is so far, I found myself writing a bit more, so here’s the continuation of said poem. Thanks and God Bless!

As always,

Michelle

Bonjour, tout le monde,

Comme j’étais occupée pour cette semaine et j’avais lu le poème pendant j’avais décidé si je le distribuerai au Facebook- ou, au présent, le poème comme il existe au moment- j’ai écrit plus du poème. Alors, la continuation du poème est en bas.  Merci et Dieu vous bénisse!

Comme toujours,

Holiday Musings Part 1: Saint Valentine’s Day/Pensées Pour Les Fêtes : Premiere Partie: Le Jour de Saint Valentin

Note: The entry is also in French, as the majority of my entries will be in both English and French. Enjoy (I hope!)!

Note: L’article de blog est en français aussi, comme la plupart de mes articles de blog seraient en anglais et français ensemble.

Hi y’all,

I hope you are having or had a splendind Saint Valentine’s Day! Were you able to spend time with loved ones, be they family, friends, significant others, pets, et cetera? I hope so, because I think that’s what God wants and Saint Valentine would have wanted. After all, God created us for relationships with him and one another. Believers especially are to be in community with one another, as per multiple passages of Scripture on the subject, and we are to love all for Jesus’ sake, as He commanded us to do so.

Yep, Saint Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about romance after all! That said, I hope you have a blessed rest of your day and check this out: John 13:34-35.

God Bless, as always,

Michelle

Bonjour, tout le monde,

J’espère que vous avez ou vous avez eu un beau Jour de Saint Valentin! Est-ce que vous étiez ables ‘a passer la journée avec vos familles, vos amis, vos amants, ou même vos animaux domestiques? J’espère que c’était le cas pour chaque de vous, mes amis, parce que je pense que c’est le souhaite de Dieu et c’était le souhaite de Saint Valentin. Apres tout, Dieu a créé toute de la humanité pour avoir les relations de l’amitié avec Lui et les uns et les autres. Ceux qui croient en Dieu sont spécialement ‘a être alliés pour les uns et les autres, selon aux Écritures., et nous devons aimer les uns et les autres pour la gloire de Jésus-Christ.Tout cela dit, j’espère que vous tous avez un jour rempli des cadeaux de Dieu pour le reste de vos journées de Saint Valentin et lisez ces versos des Écritures: Jean 13:34-35.

Dieu vous bénisse, comme toujours,

Michelle

Spoken Word Poetry: Anomaly: Part 2/ Un Pème Parlé: La Deuxième Partie

Note: The poem is only in English at present. I will publish an English and a French version upon completing the poem in its final form.

Note: Ce poeme est en anglais seulement au présent. Je publierai deux versions quand j’aurai complété le poème entièrement.
Hi everyone,

After mulling over the poem a bit, I am publishing what I’ve toyed with so far. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

As always,

Michelle

Spoken Word Poetry: Anomaly: Part 1/ Un Poème Parlé: La Première Partie

Note: The entry is also in French, after a brief hiatus from writing in French!

Note: L’article de blog est en français aussi, après une pause des écritures en français!
Hi everyone,

As I promised, I am going to be writing more in the coming days and should have a poem complete- or rather, the draft, as I am almost always editing my writing- by this evening! It’s entitled “Anomaly” and came from a rather amusing conversation twith a group of acquaintances and friends with whom I frequently have lunch at one of the popular hangout spots at my university. The point of the poem is a mix of self-expression, social commentary, and encouragement for those who question and reflect on themselves and their roles in the world every day- especially conservative/traditional, born-again, Christians like me. I’ll explain more later, but expect to see a posting soon! God Bless.

As always,

Michelle

Bonjour tout le monde,

Comme j’avais promis, j’écrirai plus des poèmes, des paroles pour les chansons, et cetera, more dans le futur et j’anticipe la complétion d’un poème- ou, plutôt, le brouillon, comme je révise souvent mes écritures- ce soir! C’est intitulée “Anomalie” de l’inspiration d’une conversation parmi des amis et moi pendant nous mangeons nos déjeuners ‘a une place très populaire pour les rendez-vous parmi les étudiants de mon université . Le poème est un mélange de l’expression individuelle, de la critique sociale, et de l’encouragement pour ceux qui questionnent et réfléchissent sur eux-mêmes et leurs rôles dans la vie quotidienne du monde chaque jour- spécialement les chrétiennes qui sont régénérés  et traditionalistes comme moi. J’expliquerai plus en détail plus tard, mais vous pouvez anticiper ‘a voir un article de blog dans un avenir très proche! Dieu vous bénisse!

Comme toujours,

Michelle
