From the translator’s journal ~Gift of illness~

Illness is a gift.
Thanks to it
I was given awareness.

Without an illness,
I would live my life
knowing nothing about others’ pain.

Blissful ignorance…
Is it true?

Being ignorant
with poor eyesight,
how many people
have I hurt so far?

Blessing is my illness.
Thanks to it
I can feel others’ pain.
