Jin of Sorrow (One Jin=Ten Niang > =One Pound)





Google.com





If sorrow can be weighed
by the Jin,
and every Niang was a dollar bill,
Then every Jin carries ten,
that's going to be heavy
enough to sink a heart often,
To joy as well as woe,
It's random but wise to
have fair measurement,
The woe is by far
the rarer cargo!

some sorrows are human made, intend to gain or hurt, but end up being hurt.

I agree that all sorrows are human made, whether it's something that we do to hurt someone, or someone hurting us. Sometimes the sorrow is such that it feels more like there are two tons sitting on my chest and it hurts to breathe, but eventually, little by little the weight lessens until it's nothing more than an ounce or two and eventually I can breathe again.

This piece made me think quite a bit. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Have a wonderful day.

winsome measurement!

smart metaphors,

a ten dollar bill = one single bill,
a 100 dollar bill = one single bill,

one foot = 12 inches,
one ki= 2 jin,

it is sad that we do have a choice but mostly, we choose to focus on negative factors and end up sad.
