GLOBE Inspires Poetry


Over the years, many schools have used GLOBE in non-science subjects such as math, social studies, and language classes to name a few. We would like to share a poem written by a Yayou Herve, a student from the Lycee Technique de Bafoussom in Cameroon. The poem was written in French and has been translated into English. The English version follows the French version below.

GLOBE; Que suis-je devenu?

GLOBE; GLOBE;
Tu as traverse des pays;
Des continents;
Et tu as frappé a la porte de mon esprit.
Oui toi GLOBE;
Qu'as-tu fais de ma vie?
Oui GLOBE que sont devenues mes connaissances?
GLOBE; la SCIENCE ; mon ENVIRONNEMENT que sont-ils pour moi?
GLOBE, GLOBE
Que dire? oui que dire?
Grace a toi a toi GLOBE
Ma vie est devenue un modèle;
Mon être est devenu responsable;
Mes études ont pris un train; 
Mes connaissances sont si grandioses;
Oui GLOBE; tu es venu; tu es bien venu.
Je t'ai connu; oui je t'ai bien connu
Et tu as soulage mes peines.
OH GLOBE; mon ENVIRONNEMENT; Grace a toi
Je le maitrise; 
Je le protège et 
Je le contrôle.
GLOBE; GLOBE ma reconnaissance pour toi;
Et mon amour pour sensibiliser et préserver L'ENVIRONNEMENT a jamais.
GLOBE; GLOBE
Que tes oeuvres continuent;
Oui continu a sauver la jeunesse;
Notre ENVIRONNEMENT qui nous est très cher.
GLOBE; GLOBE
Je continuerai avec toi a lutter pour l'ENVIRONNEMENT et a veiller les consciences;
C'est pourquoi tu es venu jusque moi.
GLOBE; GLOBE...
En moi tu resteras pour toujours et ton objectif restera pour une devise.
GLOBE; GLOBE...
Merci; Merci toi et tous mes encadreurs.

GLOBE; What have I become?

GLOBE; GLOBE;
You have travelled across countries;
Across continents;
And you have knocked at the door of my spirit.
Yes GLOBE! You;
What have you made of my life?
Yes GLOBE, what knowledge have I gathered?
GLOBE the SCIENCE; my ENVIRONMENT, what are they to me?
GLOBE, GLOBE
What do I say; Oh, what do I say?
Thanks to you; to you GLOBE;
My life has become a model;
My being has become responsible;
My studies have taken meaning;
My knowledge is so great;
Yes GLOBE; You are welcome! You are very welcome;
I have known you, I have known you well,
And you have relieved me of my pain.
OH GLOBE; my ENVIRONMENT; thanks to you 
I master it; I protect it and I control it;
GLOBE; GLOBE
my gratitude to you ;
And my love to sensitise and preserve the ENVIRONMENT forever.
GLOBE; GLOBE;
May your works continue;
May they continue to save the youth;
Our so dear ENVIRONMENT.
GLOBE; GLOBE
I will continue to fight for the ENVIRONMENT with you
and awaken consciences; that is why you came right to me.
GLOBE; GLOBE
You will remain in me forever and your objective will remain an asset.
GLOBE; GLOBE
Thank you; thank you and all your facilitators.
