Beset with depression he did go for a walk
Everyday the same walk
In a sense, every man made such a pilgrimage
Full of ambitions and not without vanity
He felt himself an enormous sense of power
But signs of deafness began to show
He was extreme in his reactions
Both in joy and in despair
He poured out his misery
In a long document called "Testament"
"Speak louder, shout, for I am deaf"
"What a humiliation when one stood beside me"
"And heard a flute in the distance"
"And I heard nothing"
