They Are Waiting For You in Outer Space
By Hongri Yuan
Translated by Yuanbing Zhang

Let the soul bloom between the sky and the earth
Don’t do nothing throughout your life like the stone turned into the dust
Everybody is born equal, the body is just a Mirage,
but the soul is imperishable from time immemorial,
more than the sun, the moon and the stars.
If you would find yourself and the world would be also in your hands
There are huge number space–times in the universe—
sweet kingdoms everywhere.
In legendary heavens, there is giant yourself,
those gods are your companions, they are waiting for you in outer space.
