"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."

A Poem: 1984

When Orwell wrote "1984"
In China he distinctly foresaw
Activities being closely monitored
And free speech being brutally butchered
How barbaric of those who would stem freedom
In pursuit of power and monetary income

Now in 2010
I pen again and again
And wage a war against the hydra
To win democracy for China
To regain Tibet's long-lost freedom
And reclaim our rightful kingdom
