Sixteen

GATE

文庫本16冊

When you step beyond your own gate, you face a million enemies.

 

 

During the hardest training it has been safer than the crowded city street

On the Irish Sea in turmoil it has been calmer than a near empty pub.

 

Enemies and chance respect neither rank nor riches

The sliver of black ice or a tool held carelessly can end

All.

 

Integrity of shine and purpose can be its own kamae*

Vibrating thus as a hummingbird before tension.

 

If necessary

Be transformed and facing forward. Still.
