Why Was I Born?

Plunging into the Back Sea

My tears weren't as salty as hers

Staring at the burning sun

My shout was swallowed by his heat

Kicking off my shadow

I awoke the lazy volcano in fierce anger

Sobbing under moonlight

Her gentle embrace couldn't ease my pain

Gazing on nihility

I felt my quick heartbeat

Listening to wind blow into my organs

Holding my head up to ask blue sky

Why was I born?




Please let me know

Why was I born?


No signal

I bent my knees in front of my lover's grave

Why was I born without you?

Roaming from summer to winter

Wandering from Newyork to Sydney

Walking from mountain to Red Sea

Flying from the earth to outerspace

Who could help me to answer?

Why was I born?

My life is an aimless wooden sampan

Floating on from Antarctic to North Pole

Where to go ?

I come home in the dusk

Alone traveler with empty soul

Crying on my mother's shoulders

"Mom, please let me know

Why was I born?"

She touches my black hairs

"Love born you"

Looking into her eyes

I see an opened door

My father is waiting for me

With his hot soup

My sibling are smiling

With honeysuckle flowers on their hands

I cry in happily

Now I know why I was born

Let me show you "What love is".
