I am much too alone . . .   Leave a comment

Abstract I 6-11-09 II Angel In The Vortex blogAngel In The Vortex — June 2009 Abstract by kenne

I am much too alone in this world, yet not alone 
enough
to truly consecrate the hour.
I am much too small in this world, yet not small 
enough
to be to you just object and thing, 
dark and smart.
I want my free will and want it accompanying 
the path which leads to action;
and want during times that beg questions, 
where something is up, 
to be among those in the know, 
or else be alone.

I want to mirror your image to its fullest perfection, 
never be blind or too old
to uphold your weighty wavering reflection. 
I want to unfold.
Nowhere I wish to stay crooked, bent; 
for there I would be dishonest, untrue. 
I want my conscience to be 
true before you;
want to describe myself like a picture I observed 
for a long time, one close up, 
like a new word I learned and embraced, 
like the everday jug, 
like my mother’s face, 
like a ship that carried me along 
through the deadliest storm.

— Rainer Maria Rilke
