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.


Being forgetful so long
You suddenly arrived without a step
You knock on my dream yet I’m not asleep

You came with a present
Trauma without a pause
So it’s my future eternal cause
For not a win but only a loss

And now you just came like that without a step
But with a trauma for me in your bare hands!
How would you show me to reach your golden palms?
A thousand flowers’ fragrance adheres my eyelids!

Is it really a present?
The present you know I’m ready to take?
Though too late now!
The gate of many strong padlocks
Open for a heart like mine!
Inside dark,
Without a spark,
Outside cold without a flake of snow

Were you beautiful then? Were you?
And are you beautiful now? Are you?

How would you ever come again?
Where were you then?
Where are you now?
