Prisoners of Self-Made Labyrinths

You are prisoners of self-made labyrinths!

You — corpses in the coffins clamped with nails!

You — fanatics, who throw bombs

Into the Parlaments, stock exchanges, and palaces,

–And you imagine that you can destroy with dynamite

All that which sprouts from within

–From your own self with irrepressible force!

I call you to rebel against

The laws of your habitual nature and your mind:

To jump out of humanity

–To final madness

–The Transformation of your own self.
