Submissions to the Rescue of Children Orphaned by China's Persecution of Falun Gong: Lyrics "Wandering About Far Away from Home"

Lin Caidie

PureInsight | September 19, 2005


I climb up to the top of a mountain,
Looking down on bizarre rocks and the moors.
Here the gusty wind is shouting and no trace of man is found.

The hawks and cranes with atrocious voices are the only beings here.
The exhausted feeling of my body and mind is the only reminder that I am still alive.

I no longer anticipate any kind words because I was born into solitude.
I came from emptiness and nothingness.
I go into emptiness and nothingness.

I come to the edge of the sea,
Staring at its boundlessness.
I am walking alone on the long beach of thousands of miles.

I removed my clothes and bathe myself in the infinite blue.
The regular rhythm of my heartbeats reminds me of my memory of being in a womb.

Countless beings with short life spans are wandering about far away from their homes.
They are immortals fallen from Heaven that sincerely wait for the day when they may return to their homes.
