Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | a wildflower that rarely blooms – một loại hoa dại hiếm nở (147)

I’ve told you dear

I’m a wildflower that rarely blooms

Thorny dessicated in the middle of a desert

Cut me open and all you’ll find is fibrous roots and tears.

I’ve told you dear

I’m a wildflower that rarely blooms

Thorny dessicated in the middle of a desert

Cut me open and all you’ll find is fibrous roots and tears.

Em đã dặn anh trước rồi đúng không
Em là một loài hoa dại hiếm nở
Khô cằn cỗi gai gốc giữa sa mạc
Mổ ra chỉ có rễ và nước mắt.

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.
