Analysis of The Journey of Human and Sun



As the sun rises and shines
On the universe, every morning
Similarly
Every human awakes, each morning
With new hopes and desires,
Carrying and bearing
Poisonous struggles
With the tiresome journey
For maintaining life and society
As the sun sets every evening
Into darkness
As human returns to its place
With the gloom of thoughts
At such a struggling ways
Human organs will surrender
Turning by turning
Human will bury its hopes and desires
To sleep, for immortal life
However,
The journey of the sun will stay
Indeed, continuously
Until the burst of the entire universe.
