Chinese poetry

I read the topic .
Which Chinese poetry do you like?


Saw this in the MRT today. It turns out that this is just part of it. But I really like it. And my translation. Be nice. My first attempt.

Not So by Hsiao Jer Wei

Don’t you know that the way to escape from a whirlpool is to stay still?
It’s not unlike the way you would escape from today.
It’s night again.
And I don’t know where I am. I’m obviously not at sea
But there are so many waves. I’m obviously not at yesterday, but there’s nothing that’s different. Are you asleep?
Except for tomorrow, do you know where else we can go?
