The world hidden to children's eyes
Quelque chose d'un peu différent de ce que je fais habituellement puisque ce texte est en anglais. Voici donc la "chose" que j'ai pondue pour un devoir d'anglais et que certaines personnes qui, j'en suis sûre, se reconnaîtront, m'ont encouragé à poster ici dans la langue de Shakespeare. Je ne pense pas que je le traduirais en français un jour, mais bon... En cas de réclame, je verrais ce que je peux faire !
My name is Elisabeth Miller and I'm just as sane as everyone else. My only problem is that I can See. Believe me or not, I would have prefered to be blind. But we can't really choose, right ? So, I See. I see that my parents are not the heroes my sister believes they are. And if Daddy does not love Mummy, it is probably because she is not a beautiful princess from Wonderland - or any other fairytale you could imagine, in fact. I see that, even if I close my eyes and wish hardly to be blind, it won't stop wars and crimes. I see time passing. Too fast. And it scares me because I realise I can't even manage my own life. I see death and diseases, fear and tears. I see that we can't change the world by ourselves. I see all those horrible things hidden to children's eyes. I see that nothing is only black or white and that there is a part of shadow in everything, a dark side to everyone. Even the ones you trust. And it scares me. No, it terrifies me. Why couldn't I just close my eyes and become the child I was, the one who does not know anything about the world around him ? Why do I see all that ? It will not help me to be happier, to find a job, or love. It will just help me to grow up. And maybe I do not want to grow up, to be an adult with responsabilities.
My name is Elisabeth Miller and I am just as sane as everyone else, except the fact that I can See. I am just a teenager who discovers the world around her, this world hidden to children's eyes, this grey world full of tears, lies and cruelty. The adult's world. The real world...
