by Old Captain Of The Three Gorges
Suffering is a poet
Walking on the thorny road
With a cross on
Suffering is the poet's daily prayer before dinner
Thank God for his grace
Suffering is the poet's faith
Despite Wind, Rain, OR Snow
The roads are muddy
Always keep one ounce of belief
Suffering is the poet's dwelling-place
And also home for return
The poet should be grateful
When God gives you gifts
He also gives you suffering
Written at South China Seafood Market in Houhe River, Hankou
