Unveiling

Like an onion
My life unveils and finally makes sense
The collective spirit leads me to my destiny
The dream destroyers, not far from birth
Thought they had me
But I am not controlled.

My ego was strong, but quickly destroyed
Along with my life, almost.
Innocence gave me a second chance.
The guiding hands took over
And I found purpose.
Creation rather than self-destruction
I do not know what the future holds
Nor do I want to know.
As long as life gives me another day,
I am happy, I am breath
That’s all that matters.
And sharing it with you.



The Québec I Know

The Québec I know
Is a place where love of land
Innocence of heart
And men
lead women to paradise lost.
The Québec I know
Gives people a chance at sharing in their dream
With a simple gesture of appreciation in return
The Québec I know
Is limitless
Is bountiful
Is rich
The Québec I know
Is not the story told by the opportunists
But the humble home shared by bleeding hearts.
The Québec I know
And love
And will serve for generations ahead
Thank You Québec
for loving and leading in the most subtle ways

Biography
My name is Élia and I am an artist and artisan in many forms, including
writing. My poetry is relatively recent, and my writing style is free-style. I
have self-published two short books found on Lulu.com and Amazon.
I have a B.A in Theological studies although I have no official religious
affiliation, as well as a B.Ed in Primary studies. My interest in writing began
as early as 12 however because of life constraints and personal difficulties,
I did not have the opportunity to fully explore my talent. So I decided now,
in my late 30s is the time to give it a go. Elia is a resident of Terrebonne in
Montréal, Québec, Canada.
