"Innocence and Experience"

Innocence: The state of being innocent.

Experienced: The state of skilled in a particular craft.

I am one, but not the other;

I have experience,

But have lost my innocence.

My hands are red...

My sword is red...

Why must I feel this way...

I have no emotions!

They are locked deep inside me,

Away in a supposedly impenetrable safe.

No one can open it.

No one.

Not even me.

Then he came:

Mr. Himura.

He told me that perhaps

Some part of me had not wanted to live

At the expense of hurting others.

My eyes widen, and I think.

Back then, I was weak;

I was not strong.

But...

Was being weak...

Really that bad?

I am not innocent...

I've killed people...

He tells me that I can start over,

That I can live on despite what happened.

This is a revelation to me.

I can...live on?

Maybe I can...
Maybe I was wrong...

Maybe I could...

Maybe...

NO!

I can't!

I wasn't wrong for doing what I did!

If I hadn't...

If I hadn't, I would not be here

To be either innocent

Or experienced!

I'm not wrong for my actions...

And Master Shishio isn't wrong either!
The one who is wrong...

Mr. Himura...

The one who's wrong is...

The one who's truly wrong...

Is...

Is...YOU!
