Friend (22) – Small vegetation / 朋友- 小植物

Posted on


We often stop by the road, and notice small little plants piercing their way out from crack line or slit of wall.
The small vegetation can operate in a small corner of the sky, with a feeble body, in a harsh environment.  The struggling spirit is respectable.
We feel this resilient power in countless people.  As there is no overnight success, just like swaying from a bumpy sea, the myth of achievement often emerged from diligence and spirit of hard work.
While we look around in all places, we see people, especially the blue collar workers; day in, day out, they are able to work under harsh environment, at long hauls.  This proves that the small plant is not diminutive at all, as it has an attitude that is bigger than life itself!

我们在路边,墙缝或台阶都时常看到那些从细缝里钻出来的小植物。

小植物能够在小角落经营自己的天空,用柔弱的身体在恶劣的环境中以柔制刚,打造出一番事业,这种精神令人可敬。

我们可以在无数的人身上感受这种力量,勤奋以及一步一脚印的打拼精神。他们不是一夜成名的神话,而是在颠簸飘摇的海上走出来。

举目环顾周围的小人物,尤其是蓝领工人,能在这么恶劣的环境里工作,不就印证小植物那令人敬佩的生活态度吗?

    A great story. I am always amazed when you see plant life growing through a crack in the sidewalk or through rocks. An amazing will to live!
