    Jeong Ho-seung’s poem (46)
    Stepping Stones

    Translated by Brother Anthony and Susan Hwang

    Water flows as it should
    ice freezes as it should
    but I cannot live as I should
    and lie flat, turned into stepping stones.

    Today again the water is cold, the current fast.
    Please, don’t fall into the water
    but stamp on me and cross over vigorously.

    How many more times will we be able
    to cross the blue stream’s stepping stones?

    Sometimes stepping stones turn into water and flow away.
    Stepping stones turned into water flow far away
    and there are times when they can never be seen again
    no matter how much we want to see them.

    * * *
    We serve others as stepping stones so that they can advance safely in life; others serve us in the same way, before passing on out of this life, since we all are mortal.
