Free Burma

4 October 2007

The dark clouds that loom over you,
nowhere could the moon be found,
And the stale, cold Autumn air,
Stagnant in the silent night.

Relighting the candles anew,
Lift the stares, not just to the ground,
As there is more hope to bear,
The world, they do, they hear your plight.

Determination – let it brew,
Quiet defiance, do not make a sound,
Be proud and hold your values dear,
When the moment is right, we’d fight!

Freedom to dance by the bayou,
Never will your hands again be bound,
Nor will danger be lurking near,
Democracy will be your might.


Free Burma


Free Burma blogger event urges all bloggers to stand in solidarity today, and highlight the urgency in protecting the welfare of Burmese people and monks who have been sorely mistreated and tortured in the past fortnight. This cannot, and must not, continue so.

I pray for no more harm to come upon those who are fighting for their rights. I pray for lives lost in this protest against senseless military rules. I pray for an awakening to a brighter future.

    Beautiful poem, nice job. FREE Burma!!!

    Bush slammed the UN and the rulers of Myanmar in his UN speech last week.

    The UN must do something, but they never use military force to fight.
    That is a huge problem.

    Illegal drug fortunes are a BIG part of this.

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe wants
    complete narco states

    criminals in power
    loving the corrupt drug war

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    shoot peaceful protesters

    calling for democracy
    which you must never allow

    Hi USpace, thank you for your comment. Unfortunately the situation is complex, and just as much as I don’t agree with violence to suppress the people, I don’t agree with violence to “restore power to the rightful owner” so to speak. I do wonder what would be the best solution in such conflict.
