NaPoWriMo Day#16: Translate a poem from a language you don’t know by just guessing what the sounds mean
Okay, I’m not gonna do that. Here’s just a small poem:
My mother always told me,
“Whether the leaf falls on the thorn,
Or the thorn pricks the leaf,
the damage is always to the leaf”.
I always wondered why it implied
That the leaf fared worse, because
The leaf got hurt, and didn’t hurt.
I want to be the leaf,
Even if it hurts.
