So far, I couldn't find one perfect translation of Ich Grolle Nicht by Heine.

Funny, because Die Lorelei sounds decent when translated.


Ich grolle nicht, und wenn das Herz auch bricht,


Ewig verlor’nes Lieb! ich grolle nicht.


Wie du auch strahlst in Diamantenpracht,


Es fällt kein Strahl in deines Herzens Nacht.



5

Das weiß ich längst. Ich sah dich ja im Traume,

Und sah die Nacht in deines Herzens Raume,

Und sah die Schlang’, die dir am Herzen frißt,


Ich sah mein Lieb, wie sehr du elend bist.

​Hey!

In case you came here after a long day to feel a bit better - you're in the right place.

It's not a therapy, so "loser-shaming" isn't off the map. We're in the LoserWorld after all, aren't we?

Think of it as Alcoholics Anonymous - but more like Losers Semi-Anonymous.

It gets worse before it gets better.

Admit it, if you think you're a loser. That's the first step. At least I hope it is.
