A Man Born of The Human Spirit

A MAN BORN OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT

(Tặng anh Hoàng Xuân Sơn)

The voice of a humanitarian
Drifts across the cosmos
Soft, the kindness
Whispering sincerely

Wraps you in a single moment
You’re a star
Your scars the paint strokes
The glorious colours of your soul

You’re a star amongst stars
Wrapped in the compassion of a man
The Godly charm
Born from the human spirit.
