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 earth.

The boy looked at the corners of earth
And with wonder and pain, seeing the towns and paths
Full of corpses and heart-rending bloods,
Further asked,
'Will you tell me how man lives in this hell? '

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