A Strange Boy

An innocent boy leaving the lap of mom
opened his fearful eyes in the war-trodden world,
and asked in a depressed voice, 'Where have I come? '
I told him the name of the earth.

The boy looked at the corners of the earth
and with wonder and pain, seeing the towns and paths
full of corpses and heart-rending bloods
he further said,
'Tell me how man lives in this hell.'

I said to him, 'Oh, it's a shame!
Where is man in this hell? '
