I Pursue No Success
Xuefeng (Translated by Conglong) I do what I like to do I follow my inner voice Let my nature burst like a fully blossomed flower ****** If god wants me to be a big tree I will try to extend my hands to the blue sky If becoming a wildflower is my destiny I will do my utmost to show my beauty ****** I’m a stream, why bother compare with rivers I’m a little grass, why compete with a peony for beauty Everything is part of god’s blueprint No one is noble or humble ****** Life is just a journey The sceneries are my guardian angels Why should I copy others and ignore my nature Chasing after success is twisting my nature ****** I don’t want to be great nor do I care success Every day, I just want to show my true self No matter what I achieve in the end I only want a beautiful journey ****** I’m not a warrior of life Nor a guard of some doctrine I have no interest in competing with masters They have their talents I have my own fun ****** I just want to be a little bee Flying through the mountains and plains It feels so good to be ordinary No longer lift my neck to pretend I’m tall ****** Tiny bridge, flowing brook, and cottages worn road, west wind and lean horse Even living in the remotest corner I will find myself happiness ****** Let me just live in the quiet small village Having joy with crickets and sparrows Winter goes, spring comes, Feeling the coolness and softness of breeze ****** Please go after success and greatness Let me stay in New Oasis for Life Take care of each other -ivysunday(Sunday) 2020-10-27
