Love Them Students

Love Them Students
The poem "Love Them Students" by the Ven. Giac Hanh. Translated from Vietnamese.





 
Every time we come across obstacles
A mountain or river we need to pass 
But without enough food or warm clothes 
We pity ourselves for a hard life
 
 
Today looking back I remember 
I remember a childhood of innocence
Off to school in the early morning
With hope that life will be better. 
 
 
Try your best oh my dear !
Whether life is rough don't despair
As days pass life will change 
A good future awaits you. 
 
 
Reflecting upon my childhood I empathize with you 
When it is getting late at night
But you are still deep in study
With the hope to one day overcome the darkness.
