NATURAL INSTINCT

October 25, 2011

By Tsoltim N. Shakabpa


Just as thunder
Follows a lightening
So do Tibetans scream
When savagely electrocuted


Just as the ground tremors
When the earth shifts
So too Tibetans shudder
When their life is agitated


Just as the snow melts
When the weather is hot
So do Tibetans vanish
When Chinese rule is scorching


Just as forests burn
When water is restricted
The priests of Tibet burn
When religious practices are prohibited


Just as the stomach wants to throw up
When disgusting food is eaten
So too Tibetans want to throw out
Disgusting authorities who illegally rule them


Just as oil and water
Don't mix
So too populists and autocrats
Can't mix


Just as the sun
Casts its light upon the moon
So does the Dalai Lama
Shed His light upon His people
