I’m Tired

Wednesday 26 December 2007, by Tenzin Tsundue

I am tired,
I am tired doing that 10th March ritual,
screaming from the hills of Dharamsala.

I am tired,
I am tired selling sweaters on the roadside,
40 years of sitting, waiting in dust and spit.

I am tired,
eating rice ’n’ dal
and grazing cows in the jungles of Karnataka.

I am tired,
I am tired dragging my dhoti
in the dirt of Manju Tila.

I am tired,
I am tired fighting for the country
I have never seen.

    dear tsuendu,

    Tired you must be
    but retired you should not be

    trust future of our motherland
    in youth of Tibet
