The Voices - Rilke

by internet_defender_2

The rich and the happy can choose to keep silent,

no need to bid for attention.

But the desperate must reveal themselves,

must say: I am blind

or: I am going blind

or: It's not good for me here on Earth

or: My child is sick

or: I am not holding it together...

- But when is that really enough?

So, lest people pass them by like objects,

sometimes they sing.

- And sometimes their songs are beautiful

Edit: "The Voices" is the title which was used in the book I own, it might not be the exact same title as the German original.
