and the rest is your imagination

In the mirror

In front of him in the mirror he saw the reflection of a figure that his customers, colleagues, superiors and even his parents wanted to see in him – always industrious and responsible, clothed with all the deceptions and exaggerations that make him an attractive and respected person. To always live up to all expectations. But nobody knew who he really was – not even himself.

Im Spiegel

Vor ihm im Spiegel stand das Abbild einer Gestalt, die seine Kunden, Kollegen und Vorgesetzten, ja sogar seine Eltern in ihm sehen wollten – immer fleißig und verantwortungsbewusst, bekleidet mit all den Täuschungen und Übertreibungen, die ihn zu einem attraktiven und angesehen Menschen machen. Um stets all den Erwartungen gerecht zu werden. Doch niemand wusste, wer er wirklich war – nicht einmal er selbst.
