Gracias María por tu ayuda. La línea *qué somos ante eso* forma parte de un haiku que estaba traduciendo del español. Es muy difícil traducir poesía. Tu traducción se acercaba, pero hay algo aún dentro de mí, que dice tengo que buscar la imagen que llene mi idea.

Gracias.

What are we, confronted with that?


Explanation:
I also agree with the previous responses for "ante eso"= "before that".

It's definitely "What" (not "That"), because "qué" has an accent, and thus it translates as "what"- the question mark may be implicit (as in an indirect question).

What we are before that


Explanation:
I don't see the question mark, so it's an affirmation. Also: 'What we are before the presence of that' (regarding to religious presences).
Luck!
