Best Poem of Ngoc Minh Nguyen

"Little Sparrow"

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."—Psalm 34: 18 New International Version (NIV)



Little sparrow, what troubles thee;
is it the stigma you face?
Little sparrow, what pierces thee;
is it the shame of disgrace?

Is it the brokenness in your heart,
or the sorrows you can't outlive?
Is it the anguish that sets you apart,
or the hurt that holds you captive?

What befalls you
is neither unfelt nor unknown;
God cares and calls you
when you're cast out and all alone.

God ...

What Mystery Has Poesy

What mystery has poesy?
What purpose has its measured art?
Why ask, "To be or not to be, "
when tragedy assails the heart?

What destiny has the poet?
What fated wonders wait for him?
How best do his verses show it
when other's light become more dim?
