1. Hidden Things by Constantine P. Cavafy

    Let them not seek to discover who I was
    from all that I have done and said.
    An obstacle was there that transformed
    the deeds and the manner of my life.
    An obstacle was there that stopped me
    many times when I was about to speak.
    Only from my most imperceptible deeds
    and my most covert writings—
    from these alone will they understand me.
    But perhaps it isn’t worth exerting
    such care and such effort for them to know me.
    Later, in the more perfect society,
    surely some other person created like me
    will appear and act freely.
