Don't Procrastinate

Yutang Lin

River flows incessantly
Ferry arrives at times
This run if missed
To cross over one must wait

Just wait till I finish this
Wait a bit more for that
If we wait for worldly matters to be clear
Crossing the river will be no more

River flows incessantly
Let go, and run to the ferry wharf
Whoever reaches the shore in advance
Will cross over when ferry arrives
