I was born in a family with a long unique history and traditions. The society around me was a cage that deprived me of liberty and was painful. My resort has been my parents, who have been dedicating their life completely to protect and raise me. So I started to become aware of my responsibility not to halt the stream of Koguryo, my ancestors’ dynasty. I found myself determined to live on, whatever might happen.
I was nurtured by beautiful Japanese nature, with its marvelous rotation of four seasons.
Facing difficulties, I considered them as mere temporal things. For I knew that another spring would surely come after a long winter. Since childhood, I rejoiced to listen to their footsteps. Under the grey low sky on a chilly winter day, its tapping sound lit in my heart a light of hope and vigor to live on. Thus spring has been my dream and hope for the future. Trees, flowers and winds have been my conversation mates, and poetry was the companion of my life.
At the age of 24, I finally encountered the light of truth. It commemorated the real arrival of spring in my life. I was grateful to everything that kept a light of hope within my heart.
Nowadays I enjoy myself, listening to the footsteps of spring; peach and plum blossom welcome the full bloom of cherry trees, only to say farewell after a while. A newly born tree-green is coloring everywhere, waving in the fresh breeze of early May.
I hear the messages of my ancestors’ souls who landed in Japan in ancient times. I acknowledge the long elapse of time, and the burden of Koguryo’s history. Their sorrows and worries have been echoing to trees, flowers and winds. I came to understand how they have consoled themselves. Sometimes they sang a song together merrily, at other times in tears. Now I am alive, and living a life connected with my ancestors, and we are going to open up the future all together. I am grateful because I am not alone and everything
is reviving in my life.
The early days of Reika were somewhat like a tiny, weak and beautiful flower.
Now Reika’s life has encountered heavenly light, it is living at the center of mankind’s history. It is becoming the true hope for the future.
Now I am sincerely grateful to be alive, and live my life.
May everyone express the same gratitude for existing on earth.
