Stalemate

by Ernst Toller

Everyday life hammers,
it chokes you,
that weariness sinks into the blood.
Lights emit a sickness.
In spite of death.
At last the battle you long for.

Stellungskrieg

by Ernst Toller

Alltag hämmert,
Würgt Dich,
Daß Müdsein ins Blut dringt.
Lichter dunsten fahl.
Trotz krepiert.
Letzten Kampf ersehnst Du.
