To Be Alive

Poem By Zhijian Jiang

In a cage, like an impregnable fortress,
There live crazy lions and tigers,
Which are scrambling for all false thrones,
And also destroying all the perfect.

And cunning foxes and vixens,
Sly wolves and jackals,
Are also playing their roles, crazily.
They are destroying all that in the cage,
Together with the lions and tigers.

The lambs die silently, unable to fight back.
Green grass gradually become drought,
The bones are scattering among them.

If someone look for it,
He will find that, in the cage wall,
There is a small, small aperture,
And a little grass is trying to break through the cage,
Doggedly alive. In its point, there is a dewdrop
Glittering and translucent...

The Loneliness Of Spring

The loneliness of spring,
Is a damp rainforest,
The rain's off and on, apparently severed, but actually connected,
The road in rainforest is muddy, tortuous,

True Love

True love is scarce all times
And we are all in a hurry travelers
Though secular prejudice isolates us
We are made in heaven

A Wonderful Beetle——shi Xiaoqun

Beetles, beetles beautiful movie star,
Shi Xiaoqun is the emperor's lover of Ir star,
Beetles, beetles beautiful movie star,
How I wonder who you are.

The Osmanthus Fragrans On The Moon

The Osmanthus Fragrans on the Moon,
I think it is also extremely aromatic.
Why not? It brings in Chang E,
The transcendent woman,the Goddess on the moon.


We all become spiders,
Hanged on the net every day.
Can't break away.


A thermometer,
Her glass shell packed with,
Material mercury,
And blank noble sentiment.
