A poem in Vietnamese by Sấu Mã

The journeys listless
After this journey be others still
The mountainous avalanche journeys
The deep had to yawn
Fine you may bite
I am not leaving.
Thẫn thờ những cuộc ra đi
Sau ra đi này còn ra đi nữa
Những ra đi núi lở
Ngừng xếp hành trang
Vực sâu đã ngáp
Ừ cho mày đớp
Mình không ra đi.
