【问号后的省略号】Ellipsis after the Question Mark

The mysteries of the world will always remain a mystery. For no matter how many reasons we can put behind it, we will never reach the truth.

有些问题不必答
静静喝茶
就算问遍天下
有谁能为无常解答

有些真像就由他
渐渐溃烂
说了信了就罢
但真像却总是匮乏

反正每个回答
惹来更多问点
反正每个道理
把困扰转移另个焦点
反正每个执着
突出逻辑缺点
反正每个句点
仍是下一句的起点

再长的导航线
有到不了的地平线
再强的望远镜
有找不到的那颗星

宇宙收藏起来的秘密
成了凡人猜不出的谜
世界太辽阔

每当别人留了个问号
我的回复只有省略号
我微不足道

Translation:

Some questions need no answers
Just drink tea
For even the world
Cannot account for life’s uncertainty

Some truths need no attention
They’ll rot eventually
If you believe it so be it
I always seem to find it lacking

Every answer triggers more questions
Every reason diverts your attention
Every debate exposes logic’s incompetence
Every full-stop starts another sentence

Even the largest sails can’t bring you to the horizon
Even the strongest scopes can’t see certain stars

Because the universe loves to keep secrets
And turn them to riddles for the puzzled man
Man awe at its limitless

Because for those sentences that end with question marks
I reply them with an ellipsis
I am humbled in my limits


Many people asked me if I have found my purpose in life.
I usually answer something vague, and it seems to garner
funny looks from them. I think meaning is transient, and
as such, I’d rather leave that a question and let things grow
onto me, rather than fixate on something and say, ” Ah this
is my purpose.”

I wonder if you face issues with the purpose of life topic too.
