Han Min Ohn Poems
Right And Wrong
What appears right may have shadow of wrong Hidden deep under the righteous ground What appear wrong may still possess some light Covered under the thick cloak of blight
A kite flying high in the sky string suddenly cut off Glided down onto the ground, lying still.
Acid And Alkali
A little acidity not many tongues will detest Sometimes a sour taste, for a tongue, is best Too low of it and the tongue will be dissolved Not a single tongue will dare to get involved.
The Cry Of Africa (For Famine Stricken A...
Having nothing to eat they sit silently Resisting the alarming signal in their bellies Their bodies so thin and emaciated Their minds full of hunger and dilapidated
With a full moon in the sky Traveled I through the wild Sound of insects and beasts passing through Traveled I through the wood
Tyranny, if I have to say Is a kind of democracy in disarray In which a handful of people have Freedom of every aspect
Once in my dream I became a butterfly Over the flowers happily I flied Resting on a flower drank I its juice Shifting from one to another till belly was full
Is it God’s will that a handful of people prosper? Is it fate that the rest are living poor? Is it God’s will that some are throwing food away? Is it fate that many people are suffering hunger’s dismay?

The Fish And The Sky
Once there was a fish living in a stream
Where water was clear and the surface gleam

Suddenly it saw a flock of birds moving by
And immediately yearned that it itself could fly
