The blizzard in the Great Toronto Area at the end of May,
It is embarrassing and sigh,
What an incredible weather of the early summer.
Half a century’s life is pestering,
I am still confused,
What an unavoidable space this is!
Professional edification in the Eastern Hemisphere for more than 20 years,
As if vividly,
In the course of scientific research, I finally realized the pollution floating in extreme materialism.
The humanistic feelings of tens of thousands of miles on the westbound road,
Destined to be unforgettable,
Continue to experience the interweaving and convergence of cultural diversity.
Who knows my heart,
How far does the fool realize the world?
A sudden COVID-19 epidemic,
Not only changed the mode of interaction between people,
It is like freezing the scorching passion to sleep.
Where did you ever think,
The global village cannot be permanently occupied by violent and ignorant forces.
In the bright end of spring,
The singing birds compete with the whirling green leaves.
The verdant hills cater to people’s views.
The fish played happily in the water village where there is little but no commotion.
Although human beings are still helplessly struggling and panicking,
However, in the absence of human beings, there are few chaos and mortality!
Some people are imprisoned in iron cages by the same kind because of extravagant greed.
And some people have already rushed to the Huangquan because of the unrestrained gluttony and waste!
At this time, can we confess our hearts,
Can we face the vast sky with tears streaming down your face?
The little virus is caused by climate change,
Or is it spread by evil forces?
No longer the past patterns,
Let us look forward to it together!
