Another Translation of Prof. Vu's Poem

Because of philosophy,
I feel sad.
The sky is hot and red.
Suddenly, it rains hard.
The moon is round and bright.
Suddenly, the moon is cut in half.
People think they can remember forever.
Looking back on it, they forget.
You think the rock is hard,
But it is easy to break down.
The droplet of water early in the morning is fragile,
But you can remember it forever.
One logic doesn't have words,
Only the heart will understand it.
Our rational minds can't see what's deep in our soul.

Life has a lot of suffering,
but this thought is philosophy.

Translated Sunny Le
