NANJING MASSACRE – 朱剑

Zhu Jian Nanjing

Zhu Jian
NANJING MASSACRE

On the walls,
densely written all over,
thousands and thousands.
The names of the dead.

I took one look,
just one look.
Then I had to get out.
Could not turn my head.

I had seen
the name of a friend.
Of course I knew,
it was only the name.

I was almost sure:
Just one more look
I would have seen
my name on the wall.

Zhu Jian
NANJING MASSAKER

an den wänden
dicht an dicht
tausende namen
der ermordeten

ich sah einmal hin
warf nur einen blick
dann musste ich raus
ohne den kopf zu wenden

ich hatte einen namen gesehen
den namen eines freundes
natürlich wusste ich
es war nur der name

ich war fast sicher
mit dem nächsten blick
hätte ich meinen
namen gesehen

《南京大屠杀》

墙上
密密麻麻写满
成千上万
死难者的名字

我看见了一眼
只看了一眼
就决定离开
头也不回的离开

因为我看到了
一位朋友的名字
当然我知道
只是重名

几乎可以确定
只要再看第二眼
我就会看见
自己的名字
