Community as an Identity


Keep staying with us as we are a large community
You will have an identity
You will get love, warm applaud and fame
In our brotherhood we will show our strength no one can claim
Do you know, your leaving hurt our pride
As you dare to abandon the best, the most resourceful and the only one that is true as a guide
It shows that you are feeble
Easy to get influenced and cannot stand strong
The rest is: you are a traitor and can be dangerous

Thank you for your CONCERN, brothers and sisters
I know you have a large number of members as many as one big nation
I am only one of millions
Just like one sand in the sandy beach....meaningless
So why don't you just take care of your community?
Love them, take care of them, and never give up helping them
Don't harm each other, don't abuse each other, and don't kill each other
Never wait till they leave the community you are proud of
That will make you mad

You asked me: aren't you afraid of the hell when you die?
And what way will the funeral of your corpse be carried out?
Dear brothers and sisters
When I was born, I came out from my mom's womb, alone
And I will also be alone when I die
Only I me and myself will harvest and be responsible for what I have planted
So why do you think I need a religion community as my identity?

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
