Father’s Words

Father's Words

About a single-plank bridge

Feel the path with your foot
Don't look down
Not at the menacing chasm
or the narrow bridge

Focus your gaze on the other end
After the first step
don't ever look back

About the long march

Some would run
Some would drive, a even
I don't know whether they'd get there
Just get your ration ready
and march on
step by step

About work

When the roof leaked
I was enlightened by the bucket
Be it pain or gain
it's already half full

and still half empty
