"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

I am oil
You are water
I am Tibetan
You are Chinese

Under cool conditions
Will be our positions
Me on top, you beneath
As doth nature bequeath

But when I am burning
With fury and yearning
If you try to put me off
I will burst, explode and scoff
And cause a devastating fire
To realize my true desire
