Key’s Rewrite – Review

At a certain point in my life, I realized I possessed nothing.

The pouch I thought that had been stuffed with happiness turned out to be empty.

 It was a matter of course, I had spent no amount of effort to fill it.

But, I did not understand even that.

Because I had lead an aimless life without substance.

And so on a day like any other, the feeling of just how much time I had really lost suddenly sunk in.

I could strike up a conversation with anyone. Be it any ol’ bastard.

But there was not one person on Earth with whom I could say I was intimate.

No deep self-reflection was required to understand  just how shallow my life was.

Kotori Kanbe, an old acquaintance, was the only friend I could talk to without reserve.

That’s right.

She was… a friend.

(I’ll do it over.)

(Next time, I’ll do it right.)

It was an earnest wish.

But, probably one that was almost impossible to fulfill.

There walks not a single soul without his own personal hardships.

Happiness cannot be obtained automatically.

It is something that can only be caught with one’s own hands.

Just what is happiness?

Is it something like youth? Then what is youth?

“It’s like, something dazzling. Something brilliant,” explained Kotori.

“Fuck if I know. It’s not somethin’ you figure out by tryin’,” spat Yoshino.

Long ago, someone spoke of traversing the “tight rope of life.”

I felt our three different views were all correct.

It was something dazzling, something unknowable, and also something terrifyingly dreadful.

It was a difficult thing to grasp. There was no hard answer.

Still, I decided to embark on a journey in search of it.

However, the cruel flow of time that waits for no one.

In the twinkling of an eye, summer came, and with another, autumn.

Before I knew it, I was already in my second year of high school.

I was impatient.

Even now, I held nothing.

I could not even figure out what I should have been doing.

So everything I did, I ended up doing for naught.
