Don’t sugar coat religion
Don’t rub out its parts

Don’t dress it up in pink angel rags
Fluttering above the war
Don’t send the believers to a tooting commentary
I’m not here for consolation like a bowl of soup
I wanted to rest my head at last on
The boulder of faith


This is my translation of “Nie” by Polish poet and priest Jan Twardowski
