Lest We Forget

Source: Echoes In Exile

LEST WE forget
Our birthright,
Our rightful inheritance –
The land of our ancestors.
Sacred. Pure. Holy Tibet.
Unique roof of the world.
Take courage from our Guardian spirits.
Struggle on. Struggle on.

Lest we forget
The innumerable, pure
Enlightened beings
Who’ve trod on Tibetan soil.
Blessing and purifying all.
Unique beings of the earth.
Take courage from our unexcelled heroes.
Struggle on. Struggle on.

Lest we forget
The million and more
Tibetans that perished.
All because they posed
An innocent threat
To the violent Chinese hordes.
Take courage from our innocent brethren.
Struggle on. Struggle on.

Lest we forget
Our conscience-keepers.
Activist heroes
Breathing courage.
Languishing in Chinese jails.
Voices unheard. Bravery unsung.
Take courage from their actions.
Struggle on. Struggle on.

Lest we forget
Our uncertain future.
Children in Tibet
Humiliated by the conquerors.
Those outside, rootless.
Lulled by false mirages.
Display courage before their eyes.
Struggle on. Struggle on.

Lest we forget
Our neglected legacy –
Our freedom struggle.
For justice, truth and peace.
To be free humans –
Tibetans in a free Tibet.
With courage resist the barbarians.
Struggle on. Struggle on.
