I thought him strong, godlike
and adored him.
Out of selfishness, I needed his attention.
Till I found that he had nothing to give.
His weakness became my strength.
When I imagined myself strongest,
I began to weaken again and again.

 No man is God

Ich bildete mir ein,
Dass er perfekt und die Krone der Schoepfung waere
Und verehrte ihn sehr.
Eigennuetzig suchte ich seine Aufmerksamkeit 
zu erlangen.
Ich fand, dass er nichts zu bieten hatte.
Seine Schwaeche wurde meine Staerke.
Als ich von meiner Festigkeit
Am meisten ueberzeugt war,
fing ich an, immer und immer wieder 
schwach zu warden

Kein Mann ist Gott
