From the translator’s journal ~Heart of pearl~

There must be
a true heart
born only from suffering.

A true heart
never born from
fair weather.

A heart
which is sensitive
to others’ pain.

The pain of heart
which can be understood
only through suffering.

Pain and suffering
are a gift from God.

A gift
to take part in
the suffering of the Lord.

A true joy
born from suffering,
a joy of love.

A joy of love
hidden in
our suffering,
a heart of pearl.
