When there’s no strength left to endure,
She kneels down before a golden figure.
Before uttering her heart’s fracture,
Her eyes rest on its feature:

***

It has eyes but cannot see
Nose but cannot smell the offertory
Mouth but cannot express its feeling of pity

***

It has hands but cannot feel
Feet but it cannot walk on its heel.

***

Without uttering the sound in her throat,
She stands up and starts to leave the court.
