Nici SuferinȚEle Nu Sînt La Fel / Even The Sufferings Are Not The Same

Nici suferințele nu sînt la fel.
Unul apasă, altul rabdă-n el.
Pe unu-l doare talpa, pe celălalt grumazul,
Pe cei mai tari trufia, pe cei mai slabi necazul.

Tu gemi că eşti puternic, el geme că-i sărac,
Pe amîndoi jurat sînt să vă-mpac.
Un vinovat îndură, alt vinovat înfrînge.
Tu dai otravă, semenul dă sînge.

Nefericiți și crînceni amîndoi.
Care-i mai teafăr dintre voi?
Cînd schimb pe cel mai mare, de sus, cu cel mai mic,
În cumpăna întoarsă nu s-a schimbat nimic.

Even the sufferings are not the same


Even the sufferings are not the same.
One pushes, other bears it in selfsame.
One's foot sole hurts, another's neck is pain,
The strong are hurt by pride, the weakest by disdain.

You moan because you're strong, because he's poor he moans
I swear to reconcile you both.
One culprit suffers, one defeats the lad.
One give the poison, fellow man gives blood.

Bitter and grumpy both of you
Which one is sanest of you two?
When, from the top, the strong one to the weak I exchange
In the reverse balance nothing will ever change.


English version, Maria Magdalena Biela
Nici SuferinȚEle Nu Sînt La Fel / Even The Sufferings Are Not The Same
