Traveling Faraway
If I’ll travel far away, I don’t want to take more with me
than sunglasses, suntan oil and a compass
I am not afraid of getting lost, even if I am besieged by a blizzard, like an elk,
I won’t struggle any more
If I’ll travel faraway, I won’t bring any of my pain with me
such as the pain of life, illness, death, and separation
I never care about the return; like a wolf
even if buried in the snow of the mountain, I won’t howl
If I’ll travel faraway, I won’t make merry
In my mind, there is a source of sorrow
I don’t want a grand feast.
While the speeding train is taking me to the end of the earth
in the heart of the river, stones always stay quiet and noble
If I’ll travel faraway, I won’t miss the earth
Feeling neither care nor worries
Like pilgrims kneeling towards the sky
Fine poems come from a beautiful soul
Like pillows forming on a cloud.
