This is also written by Lhasang:


How many?
How many more?
Yes! How many more lives?
How many more precious lives?
Rather; how many?
How many more deaths?
How many more deaths before –
Before our leaders;
Yes; our leaders including –
The Kashag and the Parliament;
Before our leaders wake up!
Wake up to the reality –
The harsh and brutal reality;
That; with nothing –
Nothing to gain –
And much to lose;
China will Never –
Never; ever walk away –
Walk away from Tibet!
