« On passe sa vie à se battre, haletant, désespéré. On se croit vainqueur, mais toutes les humiliations, tous les échecs, toutes les déceptions, les désastres, tout cela reste en vous, attend, et, un jour, remonte et vous étouffe, comme si la faiblesse de l’enfant veillait au cœur de l’homme, prête à le vaincre, prête à l’abattre. »</p><br /><br />
<p>Irène Némirovsky – La proie
You spend life struggling, battling, breathless, despairing…
You believe to be the victor…
All the humiliations, failures, deceptions, disasters… are bottled up in you
In waiting,
And one day they surge upward and suffocate you
As if the weakness of the child was hiding in the heart of man
Ready to pounce on man,
Ready to vanquish him,
And ready to murder him
Note: I transformed this translated piece of Irène Némirovsky’s prose in “La proie” in a poem structure
