Words of sorrow

Translating some sentences a day I see words of sorrow roll on paper, feel my mustache and hair hesitate to grow, and fail to grasp months and days. Translating some sentences a day I see the ink print deeply the sorrow, scattering on paper my millions of lifetimes in exile. Translating some sentences a day, I see my hand hold the pen erratically, feel the pain arise from liver and guts, and let words of sorrow freeze my fingers. By Phan Tan Hai

Thanks for sharing this. Welcome to Poetry Soup. I welcome you with the love of the Lord, expressed by John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." The Lord's blessings be with you.

Thank you very much. I see your poems are flowing with Biblical words of the deathless.
