Translation of the Poem:
Two Mirrors are pointed at each other,
one reflects the other with a sound.
When I meet someone who looks like me,
I get the feeling that I make exactly this sound.
Kids as well as adults,
Like to look at themselves in the mirror,
Fascinated by their reflection.
But when you forget that it's a mirror,
A silent emptiness will overwhelm you,
And you will remember the emptiness.
I am a mirror.
I will bring those who look back
To a place the light can't reach,
I won't reach out to them,
Instead I will try to stay with them,
Then we will have the same view.
If you're able to emphatize with someone's pain,
Pain can transform into something good,
I know that.
Neither the sadness disappears,
Nor does the world change a bit.
But to see my world turned upside down,
Really was a new perspective.
Everybody's searching for someone who looks like oneself,
No matter how much you hate each other,
You can always love someone who looks like you.
There's no love in admiration and adoration.
The thing humans will love the most in their lives,
Are persons who look most likely to them,
I am a child.
Since I believe that I'm on the right way,
I don't think of everything I had to abandon,
Everything I had to leave behind,
As a sacrifice.
Heaven closes its eyes.
