Is it easy?

On a hot desert I find the water at last.
It is a pity; it is in a glass of fire.
Is it possible to drink it?

Comforting eyes are far from me,
Close to me are cold, with meaningless looks.
Why shouldn’t I crave for the peaceful ones?
As time flies fast for an end
Is it possible to stop it?

Surrounded with lots of thorns,
My joy is a red rose, smelling the best.
Oh, God, this is such a hard test.
Is it possible to smell it?

Some claim never say amen,
For a wish that cannot be accepted.
Do they have the pen of the destiny?
Even if hope is a sand in the ocean,
Hope is our only source of life.
Is it possible to stop it?

Feelings flow like flood,
They care neither friends nor enemies.
Is it possible to stop them?
It is easy to advice for a heart
that never tasted love.
It is easy to say it but
Is it possible to control the feelings?

Oh, the beloved one!
Let your jealousy kill me time to time,
I guess I find life in this death.
Is it possible to live without it?

There is a precious diamond
At the top of a castle.
Glittering my eyes.
It is in the hands
Of a wild dragon,
Protected with guards around.
Though it may seem
impossible to reach it.
Is it easy to give up the try?
