A Strange Boy - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar
An innocent boy leaving the lap of mother
opened his fearful eyes in the war-trodden world 
and asked in a depressed voice, 'Where have I come? '
I told him the name of the earth.

The boy looked at the corners of the earth
and with wonder and pain, seeing the towns and paths
full of corpses and heart-rending bloods
further asked, 
'Will you tell me how man lives in this hell? '

I said to him, 'Oh, it's a shame! 
Where is man in this hell? 

Translated from Bangla by Nazib Wadood

SPANISH VERSION

Un niño extraño

Un niño inocente saliendo del regazo de mama
Abrió sus temeroso ojos en el mundo pisoteado por la guerra, 
Y dijo con voz deprimente, '¿De dónde vengo? '

Le dije el nombre de la tierra.

El niño miró en los rincones de la tierra
Y con asombro y dolor, viendo las ciudades y caminos 
Llenos de cadáveres y sangrientos corazones desgarrados 
Ademas dijo, 
'Dime cómo el hombre vive en este infierno.

Yo le dije, 'Oh, es una pena! 
¿Dónde estás viendo hombre en este infierno? '

Russian version: 

Странный ребёнок - Сайед Абубакар

Невинное дитя, слезая с коленей мамы, 
Открыл в страхе глаза в мир, охваченный войной, 
И спросил боязливо: «Откуда я взялся? »
Я сказала, что это земля.

Малыш осмотрелся вокруг земли
И с удивлением и горечью, видя города и тропы
Полные трупов и кровоточащих сердец, 
Спросил ещё: 
«Скажи, как живут люди в этом аду? »

Я сказала ему: «Мне очень жаль! 
Где ты увидел людей в этом аду? »

一个奇异的男孩
赛义德•阿布•巴卡尔

在战争 蹂躏的世界,一个无辜的男孩
离开母亲的膝盖,睁大恐惧的眼睛
用沮丧的声音问," ;我从哪里来?"
我告诉他,叫地球的地方

男孩看到地球的角落,城镇、 道路
横满死尸,鲜血让人胆战心惊
他很惊异,痛苦地
接着问,
"告诉我,人怎么能住在这样的地狱?"

我告诉他,"噢, 这是个耻辱!
地狱里哪有人?
