Tibet will live again

By Tsoltim N. Shakabpa

Our snow peaks are melting

Our forests are wilting

Our rivers are putrefying

Our animals are starving

Our monasteries are crumbling

Our people are mourning

Our nation is dying

And China is celebrating

But have no doubt

Our peaks will be white with snow again

Our forests will flourish again

Our rivers will cleanse again

Our animals will eat again

Our monasteries will rise again

Our people will rejoice again

And Tibet will live again

If only we do not lose hope

And continue our struggle for freedom
