Chess Master

“In the art of playing dominoes, same as in playing chess,
he who masters patience over his adversary’s playing skills always wins."

"Same principal applies in life.”

-- Louis Mercier

Patience controlling your fear of defeat

Patience learning the game
Patience trusting your own abilities to win
Patience learning from a mentor
Patience learning from your past mistakes
Patience reading and apply your game strategies
Patience in waiting for the right opportunity to act

Above it all: "Having the patience to discover one self first"

Libation With Vodka

Success built you a house not a home
Many said goodbye I wanted to say hello
Like a queen of spades you wore a dark halo
To cherish the queen of hearts in the studio
Many will remember you snorting coke by the kilo

A misunderstood toreador not the raging tauro
You searched for a shoulder to lean on, a hero
To see light creeping through your music of sorrows
I poured libation with Vodka through the window
May you find eternal peace, fa sol la si do

--Louis Mercier

PS: R.I.P. Amy Winehouse

Economics 101

Sad to say: "I am on my way"
Won't be back until labor day
I had to leave my useless heart
Sitting all upset in a shopping cart

Dear heart, 

White and red blood cells have finally teamed up to look for you. 
Liver and pancreas have lit a candle for your safe return home. 
With each clear breath I take, my lungs shed less painful tears.
Even though he tries hard to hide it, Jimmy still calls your name. 

But, as for me it's just simple economics:

I've managed 1 genuine smile, today
Took in 2 for the team, yesterday
3.65 percent profit up on Wall Street
4 days since I've refused to wave defeat
5 more days until I'm one up the tax man
6 hours before I can hold grandma's hands
7 ways to write a letter to make you understand
However, there's 8 red flags still lingers in my vision
9 courageous step taken forward to live out my passion
10 nations have now unite to help celebrate my life without you;)

Conversation with oneself

Coward and courage are siblings with “C”
Can’t insist for three blind mice to now see
Can’t force a fish to walk out of the sea
But, it takes courage for a coward to see
What has been rotting deep within his sea
Real courageousness with a capital “C”

--Louis Mercier

PS: Rest in peace: violence, greed, misery, selfish pride, racism, hatred, gluttony, terrorist warfare, lust 
political corruptions, lies, sloth, tears, wrath, envy, and fears.

True love and peace on earth has been born again, yahoo;)

Forward Motion

“Je t’aimais, je t’aime, je t’aimerai”

-- Francis Cabrel

PS: Free at last! Hope you find a lot of nice things and friends out there. 
But, just remember to take care there's a lot of bad and beware.

I'll always remember you like a smile, girl. 
Take good care and I wish you well with the very best of my love.

Big in Japan

All across their beautiful divine gracious land
“We love you” was once written on their sand
In the direction of their rising sun I always ran 
Since I befriended a pen I became big in Japan 

For appreciation, a surprised visit was in my plan
Until came Mother Nature with her wicked hands
As an earthquake she took away my reading fans
“Misery” should have been written on her dirty van

To this day, I constantly search to comprehend 
Why must the rumbling frustration from this woman
Seams to destroy everything from a loving man
Oprah Winfrey needs to come out from retirement

My fans needs to believe in faith like Mark Cuban
For their nation to rebuild, rise and unite once again
I folded a request posted note in a red bottle to send:

“Please, don’t wait for Lady Justice’s helping hand
She much rather hang the leader of the Taliban 
Cast a blind eye over the raping of Ms. Afghanistan
Bright lights are set on you to show us how to band 
Hate boarders need to fall like castles in the sand
Japan, if anyone could overcome, only you can!”
-- Louis Mercier
PS: I awake this morning to find that peace on earth was still missing. 
“Where are the KGB, NBC, FBI, ABC, IRS, CBC when you really need them?”
PS: Everlasting peace can only come “first” from within. 
What are you waiting for? Put away suffering and start loving!

Hold On, We're Comin' Home

A place to rest our feet in heat
No pills, bills and hills to greet
Rest our mind while our souls eat
No cell phone or plans to tweet
Free from the shackles of our seat
king of our castle, we fear no defeat
Unite for the love of music is always neat
Carnival time, we never skip a single beat

--Louis Mercier

PS: To start singing, jumping, waving, misbehaving behind a big truck 
is crawling in my vain, sweet music steadily whispering my name;)

"I choose love, release fear!"

-- Louis Mercier

23 To Life

Morning breeze blows to caress my pale skin
White ivory clouds tickles the blues within
Birds sings Ave Maria perched on my bottle of gin
Nothing matters but the ants across my chin
Don't lean on dreams my father use to say
While running after school in the trees to play
When did my heart beat stood still like clay?
As the green grass sway to brighten my day

-- Louis Mercier

Useless Heart - Part 3

My heart and I sat down and came to an agreement, I will allow him to break his long awaited silence, on July 15 2011 at 10:42PM. He will revisit his rainbow in order to place violet flowers at her feet this time.

My resilient useless heart would have a final chance to verbally say: "Life's hardship turn people into donkey sometimes, they become bitter, impatient, angry, frustrated, loud, verbally and physically abusive, pessimistic, perfectionist, selfish, (and God forbid) an insecure person. You can bring them in front of a mirror, but you can't force a donkey to look at what they've become. Guess, I was in love with love. I cared deeply for a former black stallion within, who's life experiences as turned a stallion into a donkey through time. No matter how hard you love this person and care for them, the power of love will never ever turn an ogre back into a princess. In order words a rock will remain a rock, they will regain their beautiful butterfly attributes only when the courage to look within for change arise. Blame it on me to have failed to notice that I was a resilient chaser of a mirage fleeting rainbow, no matter how hard, fast and persistent I ran to embrace it, it always was moving miles apart. I wish you well".

From our signed, sealed, delivered agreement, my useless heart is willing to fake it until he makes it. Stop looking back, stop hurting, stop waiting, move on until a new calling voice finds a deserving ugly old rock with princess qualities within;)

Until my last breath come, the search begins!

PS: A real ogre will say: "I can't believe the nerve of this man to have called me a donkey on his blog."

PS: A real princess within would have said: "Mirror mirror on the wall, from this day forward, help me see my true self."

Useless Heart - Part 2

"Like a warrior that fights, and wins the battle
I know the taste of victory, though I went through some nights
Consumed by the shadows, I was crippled emotionally
Somehow I made it through the heartache, yes I did, I escaped
I found my way out of the darkness, kept my faith.

When the river was deep I didn't falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it didn't stop me, no no
I knew you were waiting, I knew you were waiting for me"

-- Song by George Michael and Aretha Franklin

"With courage by my side, time as come for me to break free from my silence, to regain the use of my heart.
Life is too short, it's even shorter when you are not in sync with your own heart. 

Since I plan on kicking around for 100 years, before courage was there to carry me, I needed my heart to live and to love".

-- Louis Mercier 

PS: Heart, regardless of our differences, I still love you but I am still in charge;)

Useless Heart

I carry within a heart that is useless
I wish to rest, he dreams of success
Late in life, to him I would confess
We both use to be friends, I guess
Now estranged like day and night
I ask for peace, he's first to start a fight
Tell him go left, he marches to the right
Ever since someone broke him apart
He sings the blues like sadness is to art

-- Louis Mercier

PS: Listen heart, you are not the boss of me;)

The Most Precious Sound

Chapter forty-five

The most precious sound on Earth
Is the sound of a heart beat at birth
on the local news, before night falls,
A child is killed like a fly on the wall

Chapter forty-six

The second precious moment in life
Is a husband taking vows to honor his wife
For looking in the direction of Sir. Paul
He kicks her in the face like a soccer ball

Chapter forty-seven

The third precious event in my country 
Women marching for civil rights in unity
Then, they are disfigured to look like plastic doll
Call each other sluts for wearing the same clothes at the mall

Chapter forty-eight

The fourth most precious sound in the book of the world
The sounds of chapter forty-eight beginning with the words
"Peace on earth has finally come and is standing tall
Man and woman now shares the same washroom stall."

"Unite to conquer mental hatred within."

-- Louis Mercier

PS: When I think about it, my heart skips a beat to acknowledge how fast technology has evolved and not mankind. 
Cars will soon fly across the sky and the world nation's paranoia, fear boarders, egoism and racism will still remain.

Penis Monologue

Me, Myself and I, we must never ever tell a lie
We once met a woman with her head held high
Unlike any others laid on our path she wasn’t shy
"Psst!" we heard from the corner of our left eye 
She asked if we enjoyed the taste of pumpkin pie

Without hesitation I asked her “A pie? But why?”
She smiled with her head still held high and reply
"My name is Lady Justice you are my type of guys"
Nicely dressed with a green power suit and a tie
“For just US$5” she added “the pie will make you fly”

Tears from Me's right eye began to flow until it ran dry
Her little white lies once suffocated his people inside
Myself asked "A pie?" “Are you Death, an ally or a spy?”
“To taste real justice we rather swallow US$5 and die”

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." -- Laozi

"The mental journey for that first step begins with a fearless audacity to try." -- Louis Mercier

Even the longest and most difficult business ventures had a starting point. My journey as an Artist/Entrepreneur/Humanitarian/All around nice guy will again spread his wings in new territory by taking baby steps in the fashion industry. Three years ago to this day, I dreamed of adding fashion apparels to the Soulion Entertainment Enterprise, and as of now I am glad to announce that I am adding yet another baby steps forward in making this new venture a reality. 

Feet don't fail me now, from Actor to Film Producer to now Fashion Designer, hold on feet we are moving on up!

Dear Louis Mercier Journal faithful readers, I am exited and looking forward sharing every single moments (good or bad) from this uncharted fashion industry territory that I will explore with courage of the heart, creativity and good fun. 

Stay tune, stay blessed and enjoy your summer! Have a cold one for me too;)

One Step Forward

"...I don't know where life will lead me, but I know where I've been
I can't say what life will show me, but I know what I've seen

Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone, this little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo, knowing that I have to go

Well, they're putting up resistance, but I know that my faith will lead me on."

-- Jimmy Cliff's song

PS: Life is beautiful, don't you think?
       No matter the resistance that has been set on the road to glory, 

       I am glad that I've kept my smile along the journey
       Have you smiled lately? Go ahead, you deserve one;)
