All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

Happy New Year to Burma

Election has finished
Power is just reconnected to that drug factory
War has been renewed
Refugees being kicked back and fort
The ball is wet in the mud
The audience sway their hearts
The score is just seven to one
Wealth Engagement Vs Sanction…
The referee has lost his whistle in mud
As he searches, somebody takes his pants and runs around the field
Nobody could see a solution
The game going on for twenty years without rules
Now the kindergarteners teaching at schools…

Burma generous so
Sacrifices herself
For the wealth of her neighbours;
There She goes an’ works as much tamed servant
As throwing her heritance away
Her land no longer a hermitage

Well, I'm watching from the side of sanction though. That's what I think I should side for now.
