Je suis debout

Regarde moi : ai-je l'air d'une personne sans espoir ?
Ne vois-tu pas comment fonce-je ?
Je n'ai jamais eu peur de réussir
Je ne jamais eu peur de marcher,
Espérer sans aucune pensée,
Croire sans arrière-pensée a toujours été pour moi un acte naturel depuis l'été
T'inquiète pas je suis confiant
J'ai toujours cru en moi
J'ai toujours eu la foi
Rien ne peut me désespérer
J'ai franchi des étapes de feu
J'ai éteint des fers chauds qui me brûlaient les pieds

Regarde comment t'es arrivé là ?
Grâce à la lumière de mon espérance que je t'ai projetée
N'est-ce pas ?
T'inquiète pas pour moi
Je suis débout depuis qu'on pensait que j'étais assis

Alidou TOUGMA was born in the land of upright men and the adventure takes him to the land of eagles and hippos, Mali. Much more than hospitality, the land of griots will offer it a new life, declaimed with joys and sorrows. But with courage and relentlessness, his brilliant academic career will command respect and admiration to the highest peak of the state. From the award for best student to that of best President of the Children's Government, Alidou will repeatedly testify to his love for poetry through several laurels including the 1st prizes of: Poetry from his establishment in 2007, national poetry-slam competition for the 45th anniversary of La Francophonie, national Maxi Vacance poetry competition, best slam text, online slam competition ...
