Yin Yang

Ii Ko to Same.

Two very new acquaintances with two very different personalities.

Ii Ko is like the sun. Its light makes life bright and cheery. Comfortingly warm, giving me strength.

Same is like snow. Its beauty is stark and glaring. The cold is biting, sapping me of energy.

I would definitely gravitate toward the light but I must mind my distance lest Ii Ko and I both get burnt. Will I ever be able to be taisatsuna hito in Ii Ko’s life?

But should I wait in hope for spring? Thrice I have been disappointed by Same. That tulip bud, that frolicking squirrel, the melting ice- has spring really come?

So many questions without definite answers. Therefore, all I can do is go on living. As long as I do that, I just might be able to change something for the better.

Ii Ko

Kono hiru wa Ii Ko to boku ni shiriau.

Ii Ko. Ii Ko no namae no imi wa ‘hito ni warai saseru’. Boku wa itsumo warau.

Tanoshii na. Hontou ni
Ii Ko wo totemo daisuki da.

My first attempt at writing about something in Nihon-go. For those who manage to understand the story I am trying to tell, please be so kind as to not laugh and correct my grammar in the comments column, thank you!
