The Deliverance

The Deliverance

By Lobsang Kyizom
Deliver to us the freedom,
Yes! The freedom–
To practice our inherited religion,
With the guidance of our root guru,
In resurrection to the epoch of peace and harmony,
We call no intrusion from your communist legion.

Deliver to us the freedom.
The freedom to voice our opinions,
Tell me. Are we not the people of the same free world?
Why are we not justified with the basic human rights?
Or, is it that we are the forsaken ones.

Deliver to us the freedom.
The freedom to choose our gurus,
To worship and protect them,
Are we wronged for the faith of ours,
And because that we act on compassion?

Deliver to us the freedom!
The freedom to conserve our nature,
Whose shrills and cries are ought to be heard,
If the world has something called sensibility,
Why? Are you yet to experience the ravages?
Drought, famine and the infamous global warming.

Deliver to us the freedom,
The freedom to speak in our mother tongue,
With pride in heart and peace in mind,
And learn it in school and universities,
Is that really too much to ask for?

Deliver to us the freedom.
The freedom to claim what’s that ours as ours,
For once, you and us,
Let the truth be unfeigned,
You enjoy the air of your land,
And let us do the same.

Deliver to us the freedom,
The freedom that had been an allegory of a kind,
Such that had once been synonymous to breathing,
Because, that is only what will free us.
