بودن

گر بدینسان زيست باید پست
 
من چه بیشرمم
اگر فانوس عمرم را به رسوایی نیاویزم
بر بلند کاج خشک
کوچه بن بست
 
گر بدينسان زیست‌ باید پاک
 
من چه ناپاکم
اگر ننشانم از ايمان خود چون کوه
يادگاری جاودانه
بر ترازِ
بی بقای خاک

To be

If l should live so contemptible
How shameless I am
if l don't hang the lantern of my life
on the top of sere pine tree of the dead end alley
 
If l should live so righteous
how filthy I am
if l don't rear my faith as a mountain of eternal remembrance
On this
mortal soil
 
Thanks!
