The Life Of Owen

“You need to get a job” Owen remembered his mother say.  He had lost his mother years before—so much time had passed since he developed Alzheimer’s disease that he forgot what his mother looked like.  He just remembered that she was powerful, and she didn’t cut him any slack.  She pushed him to the limits to do what she thought was right.  You could say that his mother embodied the collective beliefs of the culture. “You need to make something of yourself or you will live in poverty—keep in mind…

I live in a box I’ve adapted to all its edges Taking its form I am trapped in its shape, Contained. In here, I am safe, Yet alone Solitude so bitter I am stone cold I am tired of holding myself together I want to break free, But I do not want to shatter, I want to melt So I long for a warm embrace To render me shapeless   I am that person you never see As if I had a talent of invisibility All I want is for…

Trust Only Your Sisters

They will make you feel guilty for feeling so deeply, for loving too much. They will teach you to hate your body, how to aim and shoot at your own scars. You will have to learn how to tame your heart, how to bring down all the layers of your skin, how to mold them into one. Calm the voice inside of you; push back the waves, the ocean that forms your entire being. Forget them, forget the noise, forget the target they embroidered onto your back, the one that…

L’interculturalisme et la langue française

À l’occasion de la Semaine de la francophonie à notre collège, j’ai assisté le mercredi 28 février à la conférence de monsieur Charles-Antoine Sévigny, conseiller au ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion, intitulée L’interculturalisme et la langue française. Pour commencer, le conférencier nous a amenés à nous poser la question suivante : « Qu’est-ce qu’être Québécois? » Ensuite, il nous a montré une vidéo où quelques individus partageaient leur opinion sur ce qu’être québécois signifiait pour eux. Monsieur Sévigny a expliqué que seulement 2% de la population du continent nord-américain parle français…
