If I die here on a foreign soil
Bury me not, burn me Instead
I have stayed here long enough
with high hopes of homecoming,
Send some of my ashes back to my homeland,
As I have promised to return not long after
Ask my parents not to cry in great grief
They have cried enough in all those years,
Ask them to forget their son,
Who doesn’t deserve a place in their heart,
But tell them they have raised a Men
Who fought well enough until his last breath,
For a nation that is under an Oppression
And for a Country whose Countrymen continues to suffer,
They might smile a bit after it
And I can Rest In Peace

I recently watched an infographic video of Tibetan history. Man, i could feel this poem. Well written!
Thank you 🙏 Bless to whoever has edited that Infographic. Thank you once again for watching the video and reading the poem.
It touched to my nerves, it brought me an instant waves of energy which made myself shivering. Yes, you and I have same pains to cure.
We shall overcome!!!
The pains we have been carrying for so long, the tears we have been shedding for so long would surely find an answer. Let us strengthen our movement and good things will surely welcome us someday.
Yes, we shall overcome bro!!
Thank You 🙏
Powerful! Interesting. I’m now reading a book called ‘Daniel’s Story’ about the Holocaust. Similar…..

Blessings for success in your fight. The reason I have dedicated myself to the work I am doing, lifetime, after lifetime, is to shut down the dark forces everywhere and free all life upon this planet and the planet itself. Peace and Oneness are my goals. May your fight soon be ended and you returned to your family and country.

Hi Sonam, thank you for subscribing to my site, https://junglestories.blog.
I’m honored. I know it’s hard for you folks to be away from your land; we all need our own ground to a flourish , just like a plant which needs a soil that is natural to it to grow and flourish. And transplanting it may or may not work but it does lose it’s essence. But sometimes going on a rough journey you can become stronger and hardier and that is my hope for you and your folks , that you come out of this journey and change stronger and rise like phoenixes from the ashes of despair and deprivation. All the very best .
Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. We will for sure rise and resist.
