Those I’d Help

by Eric Chaet

Those I’d help
will take no help from me
& give me none—
they don’t believe
that they need help
they’re proud & deluded
they need help
& give me none—
& I need help.



traduction française – Josée Brewer

Ceux que j’aiderais
ne veulent pas de mon aide
& ne m’en donne pas
ils ne croient pas
qu’ils ont besoin d’aide
ils sont fiers et s’illusionnent
ils ont besoin d’aide
& ne m’en donne pas
& j’ai besoin d’aide.
