From the translator’s journal ~Jealousy~

A young woman
killed herself.

It was power harassment
by her seniors that
led her to death.

Her suffering is
not beyond imagination
for me who has
a similar experience.

The cause of the
harassment lies
behind jealousy.

It was the same
jealousy which
put Jesus on the Cross.

doesn’t know
generosity but greed.

doesn’t know
gratitude but resentment.

won’t understand
the truth that is love
until the time of death.
Hope it will be
transformed in time…in life.
