319. Lost inspiration, lost aspiration

Heaven, have you lost
Your inspiration-dream?
I do not see it
With you anymore.

Man, it has become too old;
Therefore
I do not use it anymore.

Earth, have you lost
Your aspiration-cry?
I do not see it
With you anymore.

Man, it is too young;
Therefore
Only on rare occasions
Do I use it,
Not so often anymore.
