Some more Diao ye zong goodness. The theme this time is Youmu’s past. I assume that the ‘master’ and ‘teacher’ are referring to two different people (Yuyuko and Youki, respectively).

Unofficial translation/非公式の英訳

According to my master,
All humans live whilst holding doubts close by.

And if one defeats their doubts, they will grow strong. My teacher, too, said that once.

Even these doubts are enough for half a person.
It is as if only my powerlessness grows stronger.

Though I wish to grow stronger,
Only my impatience grows.

Deep inside my chest,
A tiny flame sways.
I know nothing but pressing forward with honesty,
With one faint resolution.

(If I can be your shield… would just that be enough?)

All humans fight
Whilst subjugating themselves. My teacher said that once.

Without controlling oneself, they go to be destroyed. My master, too, said that once.

Though things are not that simple.
It does not mean that one can cut down everything.

Cutting one’s self. Through such unreasonable things,
Only my doubts grow.

Deep inside my chest,
I brandish a tiny flame.
I know nothing but the things I foolishly meddle in,
With one bewitching resolution.

(If I can be your shield… would just that be enough?)

I live without knowing loneliness. Two are one
Because I have no doubts in devoting myself.

I raise two vows with my hands.
Because of the dignity that entails bearing this name,
There is but one thing that I have decided in my heart:
“…I will be your shield.”

Even if my flame is tiny,
As long as it rests in my heart,
I will not lapse into stupidity.
Rather, I will embrace my proud resolution.

“If I can be your shield, just that will be enough.”
