Author's Note: "Fame and fortune" are the saddest hurdles in life. Money can bring you happiness and pain. As the Chinese saying goes, "People die for money, and birds die for food". This Chinese saying can be understood in the "present progressive tense", in the "past tense", and even more in the "future tense". It is particularly profound to think about it. Only after the hurdle of "fame and fortune" can we be considered to know true life. The whole solace of the poem "Confession Times" comes from a logic: "There is a kind of goodbye to myself."

Bitcoin’s rise to the skies or the happy happiness both pulled out the Declaration of Independence of the distributed ledger,

Jianghu are sinister, constantly confessing and comforting to restore the long-lost difference.

Turning the stone into gold is a waste of the hands of the gods, and it is the background of human nature that extends good and evil.

Consolation is the progression of confession, and farewell is the unchanging logic.

Farewell without confession is a kind of Zen sentiment, farewell without comfort is a quiet farewell.

To break, to give up, to leave is just a helpless separation, confession and comfort is to cherish the separation.

Tonight and the moon, a few sighs,

When is the affection, the grace is cut off.

In the dream, thousands of times and hundreds of revolutions accomplish solace again and again.

Mom's confession became a farewell, and father's confession was separated into the purest background of the past.

The tears were strung in the eyes and gathered in the clouds,

The sound of rain and thunder awakened the white snow in the Rocky Mountains,

At this moment, no one knows about this scene.

There is a kind of blood that swallows the past and cheers,

Toast a cup of heaven, toast a cup of ground,

Salute yourself,

Say goodbye.

Note: Jianghu is a Chinese word that literally means "rivers and lakes" but also refers to the subculture of the Chinese martial arts community.
