schlittschuh (English translation)

German
A A

schlittschuh

ein leben lang laufe ich schlittschuh
auf einer endlosen fläche
aus kaltem, hartem eis
 
das eis wird dünner
ich laufe schneller
 
ich bin müde
 
was also
soll ich
tun
?

Hey Jacob, this translation is really good. I did another English translation, however not because I don't like this translation, but only because I wanted to do an equirhythmic translation. However I did use this translation as the basis.
