I Pursue No Success

I pursue no success

Xue Feng

(Translated by Conglong and Edited by Kaer)


I do what I like to do

I follow my inner voice

Let my nature burst like a fully blossomed flower


 If god wants me to be a big tree

I will try to extend my hands to the blue sky

If becoming a wildflower is my destiny

I will do my utmost to show my beauty


I’m a stream, why bother compare with rivers

I’m a little grass, why compete with a peony for beauty

Everything is part of god’s blueprint

No one is noble or humble


Life is just a journey

The sceneries are my guardian angels

Why should I copy others and ignore my nature

Chasing after success is twisting my nature


I don’t want to be great

nor do I care success

Every day, I just want to show my true self

No matter what I achieve in the end

I only want a beautiful journey


I’m not a warrior of life

Nor a guard of some doctrine

I have no interest in competing with masters

They have their talents

I have my own fun


I just want to be a little bee

Flying through the mountains and plains

It feels so good to be ordinary

No longer lift my neck to pretend I’m tall


Tiny bridge, flowing brook, and cottages
worn road, west wind and lean horse

Even living in the remotest corner

I will find myself happiness


Let me just live in the quiet small village

Having joy with crickets and sparrows

Winter goes, spring comes,

Feeling the coolness

and softness of breeze


Please go after success and greatness

Let me stay in New Oasis for Life

Take care of each other
