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.

Jealousy
doesn’t know
generosity but greed.

Jealousy
doesn’t know
gratitude but resentment.

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