The day of dividing the country in two – Anh Nguyen’s poetry

Day divide the country in two

How many times have Vietnamese mothers shed tears! / Because of the shame of being a slave to Trung, (Picture: Dinh Truong Chinh)

The fourth year is a sad, fateful year,
Our country that day had to be divided in two.
I stood there waving my hand,
He walked away with his face down.

The Ben Hai River witnessed the parting,
Separated us ever since.
Hien Luong Bridge’s name is really gentle,
But seeing so many broken lives.

Since then we have become opposites,
Making an old mother hurt by her cubs.
Shoot and kill each other without mercy!
The same blood as the mother’s fetus!

How many times did Vietnamese mothers shed tears?
Because of the shame of being a slave to China,
A thousand years of hard work, mother and daughter!
Thought it would no longer stand from now on…

But his father fought back day by day,
Many generations, also gradually overcome.
But calamity always pursues,
Still heavily shadowed by the Western invaders.

One hundred years with a humiliating life!
Fear of assimilating with green eyes and pointed noses,
Fifty years of revolving life followed.
Suffering hardships from the Japanese invaders,

It is cruel to let its people starve.
Millions of people starve to death in the winter,
The tears that fell from my mother seemed to be dry!
My bowels are now throbbing painfully,

Twenty years of civil war counted day by day.
Look at the two sub-domains lying down in turn!
Heart aching, mother reached out to stroke the ground,
It was like stroking a boy’s hair.
