By L. R. Knost, translation into Vietnamese by Lê Vĩnh Tài

Đừng sợ hãi sự tan vỡ thế giới.
Khi tất cả tan vỡ. Thì mọi thứ sẽ có thể hàn gắn
Không phải thời gian, như tha nhân đã nói, mà có ý tứ
Vì vậy, hãy yêu có mục đích, ngông cuồng, vô điều kiện
Thế giới dù tan vỡ vẫn chờ đợi
Như bóng tối vẫn chờ ánh sáng chính là bạn…
Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world.
All things break. And all things can be mended.
Not with time, as they say, but with intention.
So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally.
The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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