Edith Södergran: The Shadow of the Future
In order not to die I must be the will to power.
To avoid the fight of the atoms in dissolution.
I am a chemical mass. I know it,
I don’t believe in deceit and soul,
the game of games is so foreign to me.
Game of games, I play you and yet I don’t believe in you for one second.
Game of games, you taste good, you smell wonderful,
but there’s no soul, there never has been.
Deceit, deceit and only play.
