C'est la vie

C'est la vie,
these words for me,
are foreign,
but familiar.

This is life,
ces mots pour moi,
sont étranger,
mais familier.

Does it matter,
the language we use,
when the truth is,
that actions speak louder,
than words.

I love you,
Je t'adore,
Ich lieb Di,

It all means the same,
are any worth less,
than the others ?

It matters not,
our language,
or country we call home.

All that counts,
is what's inside,
and for me,
c'est la vie.

  I don't speak those languages, but oddly enough I liked this poem. I've never heard of someone actually going to the trouble of pointing it out: we let the barriers of language, the so-called Mark of Society, get in our way of actually understanding one another. Great write, elseibi.

  A fusion of the languages! What a poem.
Language is but a creation of man and culture.
The ending is beautiful.
P.S. I have a poem of the same name if you wish to check it out :)

  I liked this very much,. And no the language means nothing but where we come from,.
This is really beautiful written,

"Does it matter,
the language we use,
when the truth is,
that actions speak louder,
than words."

Liked these lines alot, I feel the same way, Actions means so much more than words, the word choise is excellent.

"All that counts,
is what's inside,
and for me,
c'est la vie."

loved the ending,, very thoughtfull and meaningful,, whats inside is what counts its great the flow was wonderfully written..

Keep it up, great style use..
