City of Glass - 03 (3)

“For now, I am still Peter Stillman. That is not my real name. I cannot say who I will be tomorrow. Each day is new, and each day I am born again. I see hope everywhere, even in the dark, and when I die I will perhaps become God.

“There are many more words to speak. But I do not think I will speak them. No. Not today. My mouth is tired now, and I think the time has come for me to go. Of course, I know nothing of time. But that makes no difference. To me. Thank you very much. I know you will save my life, Mr. Auster. I am counting on you. Life can last just so long, you understand. Everything else is in the room, with darkness, with God's language, with screams. Here I am of the air, a beautiful thing for the light to shine on. Perhaps you will remember that. I am Peter Stillman. That is not my real name. Thank you very much.”

“For now, I am still Peter Stillman. “Por ahora, sigo siendo Peter Stillman. That is not my real name. Ese no es mi verdadero nombre. I cannot say who I will be tomorrow. No puedo decir quién seré mañana. Each day is new, and each day I am born again. Cada día es nuevo, y cada día vuelvo a nacer. I see hope everywhere, even in the dark, and when I die I will perhaps become God. Veo esperanza en todas partes, incluso en la oscuridad, y cuando muera quizás me convierta en Dios.

“There are many more words to speak. “Hay muchas más palabras para hablar. But I do not think I will speak them. Pero no creo que las hable. No. Not today. Hoy no. My mouth is tired now, and I think the time has come for me to go. Mi boca está cansada ahora, y creo que ha llegado el momento de irme. Of course, I know nothing of time. Por supuesto, no sé nada del tiempo. But that makes no difference. Pero eso no hace ninguna diferencia. To me. A mi. Thank you very much. Muchísimas gracias. I know you will save my life, Mr. Auster. Sé que me salvará la vida, Sr. Auster. I am counting on you. Estoy contando contigo. Life can last just so long, you understand. La vida puede durar tanto tiempo, ¿entiendes? Everything else is in the room, with darkness, with God's language, with screams. Todo lo demás está en la habitación, con oscuridad, con el lenguaje de Dios, con gritos. Here I am of the air, a beautiful thing for the light to shine on. Aquí estoy del aire, una cosa hermosa para que la luz brille. Perhaps you will remember that. Tal vez lo recuerde. I am Peter Stillman. Soy Peter Stillman. That is not my real name. Ese no es mi verdadero nombre. Thank you very much.”
