Kenji Miyazawa Poetry Collection

Be not defeated by the rain.
Be not defeated by the wind.
Succumb not (tdk mgaku kalah) to the snows of winter .
Nor be bested by the heat of summer .

Be strong in body,
Unfettered (tdk terikat/dipengaruhi) by desire,
Not enticed by anger.

Cultivate a quiet joy.
Count yourself last in everything, put others before you.
Watch well and listen closely .
Hold the learned lessons dear.

Go forth and nurse(jaga/pelihara) him to death
Go forth and relieve (bebaskan) her of burden.
Go forth with words of courage to dispel his fear.

In times of drought, shed tears of sympathy.
In summers cold, walk in concern and empathy.

Better dismissed as useless, than flattered as a Great Man.

This is my goal, the person i strive to become.
This is my goal, the person i strive to become.
