Let them deny painfully

Where their belly fell

Let them run hastily

To where we can’t tell


They are like rain beaten birds

of the forest


Why not tie a bond


And plan to re-make

the smelling pond?


I’m voicing the reality now


This is my homeland

I stand to be a native

The indigenous lover

of my land and culture


May I wear not

The visitor’s shoe

Even if

I walk bare footed

For I keep the strength

in dignified forefathers


How hot

the gravels may be

I still seize not

to be a member

of my homeland
