Another post before the weekend. 🙂
The lyrics1 are very lovely:
Make my wish come true, let darkness slip aside
Hiding all our hope, mocking what we treasure
Battles we can win, if we believe our souls
Hang in for the light, till dawn
Fate will not leave you, hate will not heal you
Pray and one day, peace shall flow everywhere.
When I heard the part “hate will not heal you”, I was really moved. It’s so true.
It reminds me of something the Buddha said in the Dhammapada:
5. Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal.
6. There are those who do not realize that one day we all must die. But those who do realize this settle their quarrels.
Anyhow, very lovely song.
1 This is the japanese version of the song, by the way. I think it’s great. There is an English version of the lyrics which is slightly different, but I actually like this version better. 😉
