Steter Kampf

Language: German (Deutsch)

Kampf ist das Leben,
immerwährender Streit,
nie von sorgen befreit.
Ruhet es draussen,
stürmet innerlich Krieg.
Wird auch von aussen,
doch im Herzen nicht Sieg.
Immer zu wehren,
unaufhörlicher Zwist,
Ruhe entbehren,
Los des Sterblichen ist.
Scheint es entschieden,
kämpfet die Seele mit sich.
Nimmer wird Frieden,
bis nicht die Seele entwich.

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
