To criticize and to unmask.
What for? Let’s think, we live not badly.
This epoch’s special a sign –
is to keep silent sadly.
Though we are captives long ago
of dreams, not coming true in living,
still indestructible trust in idols
will substitute for truth’s striving.
In the unconsciousness we rot,
over misfortunes we are crying,
and all around is idle talking,
and in hypocrisy we are lying.
Now I as you – keep silent too,
and though my way is steep and hard,
I learn my prayers as anew
for only one entreating the Lord,
that’s – when the darkness covers me,
to blind my soul - God won’t permit.
