POEM TRANSLATION: TANKA 31 & 32

POEM TRANSLATION: TANKA 31 & 32

 

 

 PROMISES

(承諾)

 

throw more promises

發出多承諾

honesty through side mirrors

誠實通過旁視鏡

best to win more hearts

最好心贏得

steer wheels to dare lies ahead

輪轉敢向前駛

truth reflect by rear mirror

真實反映由後鏡

 

 

LIES

 (謊言)

 

lies beget more lies

謊言產謊言

stake in social survival

桩在社會生存

 

fear of blame and shame

害怕責和羞

truth and lies are never straight

真和謊永遠不直

upright walk in winding path

正直在曲折路徑
