【浮瓶】Bottle in the Sea

We are transparent and empty, so what do others see in us?

浮瓶里有一封信
独自漂流无情海里
能靠近目的
却永解不开自己

我有透明的空虚
当某个人走过流浪的轨迹
虽然不留意
但至少故事由我保管
在心里

若你发现我不妨停下呼吸
信里的诗句
褪色不清晰
但时间雕刻出的痕迹
最美丽

浮瓶犹如一个人
独自漂流无情海里
越看不清自己
就越解不开自己

Translation:

A bottle, a letter
Alone in the sea without mercy
It can reach wherever it wants to reach
It cannot open to discover what is inside it

Transparent, naked, empty
To someone who walks by the beach
but dismisses it
At least the stories are safely kept
Within me

If you find me, slow down for a second
The letter has poems
Faded
At least the stories coloured by time
Is beauty

A bottle, a person
Alone in the sea without mercy
When one cannot appreciate what is inside of him
One cannot open to discover what is inside him


As we drift through life everyday, what do we become?

One is essential empty, so I collect stories to fill myself.
Hopefully someday, someone will be find me,
and read the stories.

For it is the stories, that I see meaning in.

    1. I realised that too. Saw a post by another blogger feeling a little frustrated over the lack of views on his blog. It’s a funny how the internet works sometimes, but I believe it takes time for people to find your stories (on a blog).
