Michel began to write his first poems during his adolescence. He wrote them according to the moods of the day, his feelings at a given moment, and he will continue to do so throughout his life.
Just like his novels with poetic writing, these poems are similar to an autobiography which remains to be deciphered and their contents radiate by its frankness and the various topics approached: childhood, love, God and the son, death, loneliness, or still the confrontation found under various forms: confrontation between men and animals, men and brothers, men and God, or quite simply of man facing himself.
Michel denounces in particular the unequal distribution of material wealth creating situations of extreme poverty in the world, but also the poverty of spirit and the individualism resulting from it, the practice of religious rules too often deprived of any true faith, or the forgetfulness of the essential, these small things of life which allow us simply to remain human.
Michel denounces this society to which he struggles to acclimate. This society, in his eyes, is full of injustices that he does not understand and that are beyond him.
A tiny part of the poems was already published in two French collections: “Au devant de vous” (In front of you) and “Drôle de monde que le monde de mon Père” (Funny world that the world of my father).
