Unsung Heroes

Poem By Khampa Boy

The song in a rhythm swirl
And a tune in the fire whirl
Can you see them through their eyes?
Or will you listen least to realize?

A word within the words untold
This is a call you must them behold
Singing in a tune at the nick of time
And soothing their souls in hopes sublime

They went through the fires and not bombs
For they prayed for peace over their tombs
Where the spirit of a holy land was castled
And for centuries their fore fathers were settled

The warriors of the snow land are dead
But over their bier no rivals' blood was shed
They were tortured and targeted in grave
Yet they spoke the truth for they are brave

They are gone yet the song remained unheard
For deaf is the world as their visions blurred
But deeds are noble as history will record
Their deathless theme, the truth our lord

Horizon Lost

Storm clouds roll in again and again
Till the snow high drift is utterly slain
Light and laughter began to fade
My world is now captured in shade

The Defeated Kingdom

The kingdom in a mosaic of golden rays
Was once the paradise of happy days
Fields of greenery and soils soft creams
The mother of all, home of sweet dreams

For An Immolated Monk

Today, a joyful moment of my alien home
Hails the sixty fourth birthday of Bharat dome
But a hazy day of my sickly snow state
Unfolds a dawn of thrashing storms of hate

My Little Bride

I sing through the wind blown
A song from the land unknown
Bewildered if I should rue or rejoice
For I can't hear her voiceless voice

Fallen Leaf

Rising above the foliage stretched across the hills
In a crystal fountain that snowy white distils
The celestial light which keeps darkness at the bay
I am the dreamful cold breeze on the summer's day
