From the translator’s journal ~ Competition/war ~

Everyday the news is about Ukraine
and the competition of arms.

Not a competition of construction,
but that of destruction.

Not a competition for peacemaking
but that of striking power.

Destructing power and
striking power are
the power of hatred.

Construction and peacemaking
are the power of love.

I believe the power of love
will defeat the hatred,
as the power of life
conquered death in Christ.

May the power of love
and the power of life
conquer the war and
bring peace to Ukraine!
