I had received this encouraging poem from a family friend.
Li Shou, 2012-08-11
A rough translation:
Persevering in the path less travelled;
Determination to sharpen one’s skills;
My forebears broke new ground,
which inspires me to follow.
I keep this poem around in my wallet. It fills me with ambition whenever I read it. Thank you so much for this poem!
P.S. It’s also an acrostic poem; the first word of each line forms the phrase “Mr. Herng Yi”.
