The Road

by Sea '21


I am on a long and narrow

road

I walk day and night

I do not know what state I

am in

I walk day and night


The moment I came into

the world

I walked at the same time

At an inn with two doors

I walk day and night


I walk even while sleeping

I am looking for a reason to

stay

I always see the ones who

left

I walk day and night


Sixteen years on these

roads

In the valleys, mountains,

and desserts

In foreign lands I make my

way

I walk day and night


If deeply thought about

the goal seems very far

from sight

While the road is only a

minute long

I walk day and night


The Sea does wonder at

this plight

Lament or laughter, which

is right?

Still to attain the distant goal

I walk day and night
