My Inner Disturbance
Study hard, learn with great zeal!
You know nothing about this world, you young soul!
So don't waste your time, your life,
go back to your books and learn from them.
Countless times of lecture after lecture,
gotten sick of listening their empty sermon.
My ears were coated and glazed by their 'oh-I-do-care!' attitude,
but it only made me contemplate, 'do you really care?'
'If you think learning is so important, why don't you read first?
All you do is watching television and chatting with your friends over the phone.
Do I really see any role model?'
Of course, I didn't speak up.
I wouldn't risk disturbing my zen any further by doing something stupid.
I pretended to listen to them although I could answer back hundreds of words with bullet speed.
Anger, frustration, devastation and isolation-
in fact,- brought me to the world of books, literature.
I wanted to know why this world is full of misery.
I wanted to know why do people live with hypocrisy.
I need to hear the answer why there are so many gaps between the knowledge and the reality.
What is going on in this world?
My ongoing questions will never be calm,
I'm just taming these inner disturbance with inner strength.
And I write, what else can I do, huh?
