Advice to myself

Advice to Myself

Stop living a false and empty life.

Drop those deceptions of your own mind

And endless projects that you don’t need!

Don’t make your head spin with the burden

Of strings of ideas that never come true

And endless distracting activities—

They’re just waves on water.

Just keep quiet.
