HESITATION - Dịch thơ MIÊN DU - ÐÀLẠT
TRẦN BÌNH NHUNG

A million things to be said,
But I am too hesitant
A million ideas to be written
But my hand is too shaky.

Worrying that the ink is drying,
Concerned that lines are not well traced,
Thinking that words are trite,
And being critiqued by the reader.

So many words to communicate
Are still locked in my heart
So many thoughts to relay
Remain silent in my memory.

All through life, I am confused
Letting love pass by
Out of my arm reach
A capriciously unattainable goal.

I become a common rock
Standing alone in the sunset
With so many burning questions
Remorsefully unanswered.

Binh Nhung Tran
