Anthology of Tibetan Poets


Dagyap Jigme Dorjee



Foreign engraved our generation,

But do work for our country's restoration.

Do not forget China's excavation,

On our land and people inside our nation.

Exploiting all our ancestor's creation,

Our race is on the verge of deterioration.

Hold one another's hand for unification.

Unity will be the strength for our destination.

Charter remains charter, unless we make it constitution.

China in Tibet has massacred 1000 years tradition,

And we in exile lost in modern addiction.

Now, I'm stuck with a puzzled question,

"Are we China's partisan, in their hideous action?"

Red with yellow stars, waving since China's invasion,

Led to thousands evacuation.

Martyrs from the great revolution,

Sacrificed their lives for our future evolution.

Five decades of martyrdom in Tibet nation,

We rose from obscurity to universal recognition.

Men and women, young and old, it's time for an independent nation.

Let's fly like free birds from colonization.
