I am not a fish to flow with water
My feet are so small for miles to go,
I am not a bird to fly so high in sky
I move resolutely for goals sought.

I don’t live like flowers till twilight
I will take with me so many years,
I am not the words that are only said
Open up to work like foliage in sun.

I count each hour with quick reason
In the heart of things for pure emotion,
Neither soft like cotton nor hard like rock
Not bitter like gourd or sweeter like honey.

I sing in spring and cry in winter
I am silent like the hill, louder like sea,
I halt for each station of past
Safely try to guide my steps forward.

I read my mind when I grow
Learn and listen to life’s strange ways,
Search longingly what I can get
I know my limit from head to heart.
