Tibet is not china.


If I speak, I am suspected.
If I protest, I disappear.
If I try to flee, I am apprehended.
If I own a flag I am imprisoned.
If I believe, I am beaten.
If I worship, I am whipped.
If I call myself Chinese, I am censured.
If I call myself Tibetan, I am tortured.
But they cannot silence the sky.
They cannot refuse the rain that falls.
They cannot stop the seed from growing
And the lotus will bloom again.
