Humble me again I ask of Kunming, as I bike through its crowded streets
and vacant railroads.
Remind me of the person there is still to become
before I forget.

Teach me of patience I ask 老师. Knowing that time will continue impatiently until
we realize again.
Remind me of what is yet to come and of that
which has passed.

Tear me down and fail me. Make the obstacles bountiful and the lessons
abundant as well.
Remind me that there is much more to learn than
numbers and words.

Only then will I grow,
greater than 3 moons.
