When my hometown was transformed into another town, that “another town” became “the hometown”. The wall of the brick house that witnessed my growth has already been covered by white cement ash. I have no idea how many stories people there still remember. Yet, I am a witness to the absence of its residents, the growth of the crowded city, and the rapid development of society. The house I once called home could not withstand the roaring waves of time and slowly disappeared.

故鄉變他鄉,異鄉成故鄉。那曾經見證我成長的青磚屋子,已被人抹上一層白色的水泥灰。我不知道有多少故事依然被人記得,然而,我卻知道住在裡面的人走了,城市熱鬧了,社會發展了。那屋子在時間的洪流裏不堪一擊,有一日會消失殆盡。
