Like a Prodigal Returned Home
by Kim Kyu
In our current time, people are greedy for money, fame, and lust, and we often find ourselves at the mercy of other peoples desires and our speed-centered society. At first, like most people, I was tired of my drab life, so I too pursued pleasure, but I felt empty. By accepting the repetitive life, I come to a tranquility of mind. Now I am ready to face my life.
By writing poetry, I have gained the wisdom to overcome difficulties, and I want to describe the process of finding delight in doing so.
