Twenties, an important turning point. Friends start going their separate ways depend on their choices. The basic worldview formed in our minds. We got the first taste in the complex society and pointed ourselves to a proper direction. We are facing the fork in the road and we have to make a decision now. For sure, both positive and negative voices ring from different people fight in my head for a quite long time that hold me back from moving forward all the time.
Until last year, I still had a dream of being a songwriter/singer and believed that I can be famous overnight. But today, I thought that was too young too naive. My friends always call me an ambitious girl. However, being a dreamer is not dreaming your life away. I came back to the earth after my twentieth birthday. I do what I can do and learn what I can’t. This is a basic success rule. And now, I move closer to my dream day by day.
I wrote this song for those days in the past and at present as well. I am sure that I will regard my twenties as naive age someday in future since I make progress everyday. For those who always complain, why don’t you move forward to ideal life and never compromise on opponents?
There is the inspiration I wrote in Chinese.

Here is the original Chinese lyric and I summarized it into English.
再见 熟悉的稚嫩 Goodbye to my naive

I don’t know where the road will end. But I will keep insecurity, anxiety and stress by myself.
What I know is that there is land behind the sea and there is Aurora over the Arctic.
Goodbye to those people who only cry and never try. I will find my destination on this lonely road.
Goodbye to my naive. I will handle all the difficulties even if nobody supports me.
Goodbye and I will be a broken line kite. I don’t want to wait anymore and never feel cold and hopeless in the storm.
