HOMMAGE AUX FEMMES. Par Louis CAMARA

Mercredi 1 Décembre 2021

Ặ M’MAH SYLLA, paix à son âme
Ặ toutes les femmes victimes de la brutalité de monstres qui n’ont d’humain que l’apparence


Elles sont                                                                                                                                        
Si fortes mais si fragiles                                                                                                                                       
Si douces et aimantes                                                                                                                                                
Si belles et si frêles                                                                                                                                                           
Et pourtant elles portent la moitié du ciel                                                                                                   
Sans elles                                                                                                              
Il n’y aurait point de vie                                                                                                                                                                       
Et le monde ne serait qu’un grand désert glacé                                                                                                                   
La musique de leurs voix                                                                                                                                
Berce le cœur de l’univers                                                                                                                                                                          
Et fait palpiter les étoiles solitaires                                                                                                                                                                               
Pourquoi sont-elles battues                                                                                                                                                  Torturées                                                                                                                                                                 Violées                                                                                                                                                       Humiliées                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Quelle infamie!                                                                                                                                      
Quelle honte pour le genre humain!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Pourquoi sont-ils donc si méchants                                                                                                                                      
Ces hommes qui battent les femmes                                                                                                                                                           
Les torturent                                                                                                                                                                                 
Les violent                                                                                                                                                                                                                Les humilient                                                                                                                                                                                                              Les tuent !                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Oublient-ils ce qu’ils doivent                                                                                                                                       
Ặ ces vestales anonymes                                                                                                                                                  
Ặ ces porteuses d’aromates ;                                                                                                                                                                              Mères                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Épouses                                                                                                                                                                                                         Sœurs                                                                                                                                                                    Filles                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Sans qui il n’y aurait ni joie                                                                                                                                                    
Ni bonheur                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Ni paix                                                                                                                                                                 
Ni tranquillité                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Sur notre terre pétrie de souffrances                                                                                                                                                                                  
Et d’amertume                                                                                                                                                                                                               
« La femme est l’avenir de l’homme»                                                                                                                                                                            
A dit un jour un grand poète                                                                                                                                                          
Ô Hommes cessez d’être violents                                                                           
Ặ l’égard des femmes                                                                                                                                                                  
Ne les battez plus                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Ne les humiliez plus                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Ne les torturez plus                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Mais couvrez-les de tendresse                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       De douceur                                                                                                                                                                                               
De caresses                                                                                                                                                                                                   
De chaleur                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Qu’entre vous et elles                                                                                                                                            
Il n’y ait place que pour le respect                                                                                                                                                                    Qu’entre vous et elles                                                                                                                                                                                
Il n’y ait qu’un seul langage : l’Amour…
