From the translator’s journal ~No pain sense?~

Having fallen from the stairway
at a railway station
three days ago,
I feel no pain at all.

I remember that
I had no pain
when I received
a lymph node dissection
12 years ago.

Don’t I have
a sense of pain?

Or is it because of
God’s protection,
or of your prayers?

But I hope
I have a sense of pain
for others’ pain!

Thank you, Lord,
and thank you,
those who pray for me!
