Pursuing ideals


The important thing is to never give up. Here is a poem that describes what we must do in crazy times like these.

~ ~ ~

Even though our reality
Is filled with discrepancies and problems
We should not stop
Pursuing ideals.

Even though our life
Is filled with failures and regrets
We should not give up
Our search for aspiration.

The place we aim for
The aspiration we seek
Continues to shine
No mater how distant and challenging it may be.

Even if dark clouds Hang over the era
We must believe in
Our future ahead.

—Keiko Takahashi
