“My Will” by KUMOI Tatsuo

“My Will”
by Tasuo Kumoi (a Japanese Patriot of the late Tkugawa periodo,1844-1871)

Confronting with death, I have no fear to die.
Or being to live, I have no intention of enduring to live in dishonor.
The JUSTICE of MAN competes with the sun for the shining.
If my way is upright,
I’m not shy about the boiling to death.
Though I am a tiny man,
I will become the GREAT WALL against the authority, for the people.
