Here are several poems and words to songs I've written.
The song, “Celestial Song,” talks about the timeless virtue of the natural world. It's also about a traditional Chinese practice of self-cultivation, Falun Gong, which is based on the timeless virtues of Truth, Compassion and Tolerance.
Falun Gong was very widespread in China until 1999, since which time it has been brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The second part speaks of the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Regime, which seeks to wipe out people's conscience in order to rule the country. However, the essential principle that is touched on is the idea that, “Good will beget good and evil will beget evil.” Hence, the virtues that we find in nature are in harmony with those that we can cultivate in ourselves. While the intentional denial of the inherent virtues of kindness, honesty, and tolerance, will inevitably lead to a fatal schism with the way of nature. In this instance, the CCP represents such a fatal schism, from which the Chinese people, with their 5,000 year-old divinely-imparted culture, must break from if they are to have hope for a bright future.
Celestial Song (lyrics)
How Many Days Does the Sun Rise Over the Land
Everything so Bright and Clear
And Good Much to Share
Much That We Have
So Much So Much So Good
Rays Cross the Sky it Rises
Sunrise Open Your Eyes
Rays in the Sky Sun Rises
Open Eyes Look Inside
Clear is the Day
Truth Shines Like Light
Great Falun Dafa Way
Kindness Virtue is Right
Words of Salvation
The Lord's Words
Truth Good Endure
Words of Salvation
The Lord's Words
Be True Good Endure
5,000 years (poem)
Light of the world
Where is your virtue?
Where is your soul?
Stranded in the dark.
Find the Truth that's true
Unlock your mind and heart
The evil party's through
Protect your life.
Renounce the CCP
Renounce the bloody flag.
Life's a choice that's free.
Heaven protects kindness
Dignity protects life.
The virtue that's inside
Is where your future lies.
Protect your soul.
Renounce the CCP
Choose the bright future
Choose virtue, dignity.
“Buddha Light” (poem)
This is “Buddha Light.”
With nothing of meaning
Nothing of substance
How can there be virtue?
How can one be wise?
High above man
There is divine wisdom.
Devotion, right faith
Reveals one's true nature.
Where is the self?
Where is the “I”?
‘Tis this body of dust
When it's blown away?
Washing Out the Party From the People's Minds
(Quitting the Chinese Communist Party) (lyrics)
I found the joy that brings me through
After so long searching for You
Before we left we said so long
And promised You we would return
But the seas are broad and oh so wide
But nothing can stop the rising tide
Fortunes turn the waves all's set to go
Til the moment comes we'll be here, lo
Right is mighty and the profane falls from their heads
Love is all for the Lord and the Lord is the Way
Go the river and the soul goes on its way
With a Righteous Mind no sin remains
Taking harbor in the mercy of His grace
Time slips this place
And now we see that we are saved
The storm has passed clear skies remain
As the boats all quickly sail on home
Raise the sails let the good words push you along
Bounty's high all do reap what is said and sown
Turn to Dafa instead safe from fires and brimstone
A new low moon awaits put your name down to quit
Then your safe in the light your name's of off death's list
All the party has said all of it is a lie!
Make it clear and shout its death call to the sky!
Save the people wipe the poison from their minds
The specter falls the virtue shines
No more evil party in their hearts
The future starts.
The Dafa* for All (lyrics)
Everyone around you
Drowning day and night no way to see the Truth
Everyone’s got problems
But fails to get solutions in their search to soothe
Their aching minds in worry
For how to make the dollar after the next
And when the life is over
Nothing to take with them but sickness and regret
You gotta take that stride!
What’s the use of building
The ship you know is on its way to sink
Fighting hurting filling
A room that’s going to vanish in a blink
You live the life and take time
To savor each moment’s precious breathe
But don’t you know that one day
There’ll be no more time to make the moment last
You gotta take that stride!
You can see it inside their eyes
What they say is only truth
Dispersing all the lies
The lies dressed up in thin disguise
By the red clown Jiang Zemin*
Who cowers in fear and hides
The Truth does truly set you free
When what’s right and wrong is clear
It’s peace and harmony
The chains they break like wispy straws
For righteous words can melt the steel inside your heart
I still believe their minds aren’t lost
That people’s hearts can still be found
Every being must choose what is just
To make their stance on where they’re bound
For Zhen Shan Ren* is what is good
And new worlds wait to hear their choice
The Dafa of the universe
You have a voice.
Walking straight the path
That leads to righteous fruit
Narrow is the bridge
But sure is each disciple’s foot
On the path to their true homes
No coercion can them make
To forget why they are here
For the sentient beings’ sake
Day and night we work to in
All the world the Truth instill
Let them know the true from false
What the CCP* is out to steal
The conscience inside your heart
The good thoughts inside your mind
But they never even thought
Their crimes in the dark won’t hide
People tortured people murdered
Organs ripped from their inside
And their bodies then cremated
Like my uncles in Reich-time
And the world made not a sound
While 6 million were gassed
Yet another genocide
And again “It’s not our mess.”
And all conscience steps aside
“Money talks,” ideals, what’s that??
Their own principles tossed out
“Just so long as it’s not me.”
Suffer yes you suffer
Bitterness is sweet
The precious will uncovered
Suffer oh we suffer
Cultivate the mind
Leaving no gap uncovered
Suffer, yes you suffer
Every pain is joy
When you yourself discover
Love is the eternal call.
The Man came here to save all
Who came to this place
From distant cosmos universes
All here for His face
The Master’s* image in our minds
In distant histories.
And here at last after lifetimes of walking through the world’s story.
The time comes to hear the Great Law
Dafa for all beings
Selfless courage and forbearance
Compassion fills us to a T.
So take these words remember them
“Falun Gong is Good!”
We ask only to choose what’s right
Each does what he should
See what the persecution is
What Dafa is, the CCP must be stopped for good.
The Man endured all the sins the world had done.
Asking for nothing back giving all that could be done
And now it’s time for people to wake up and put forth their own fair due.
*Dafa: Literally “Great Law” [Great (da) Law (fa)]. Falun Dafa, also called Falun Gong, is a traditional Chinese self-cultivation/meditation practice based upon the principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.” Between 1991 and 1999, approximately 100 million Chinese people practiced Falun Dafa in China.
*Jiang Zemin: Former dictator and leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who ordered the persecution of Falun Gong and that all the state media fabricate lies to slander Falun Dafa and broadcast it to all the world and brainwash the Chinese people into hating Falun Dafa.
*Zhen Shan Ren: The fundamental principles of Falun Dafa: Truth Compassion Forbearance (Zhen Shan Ren). According to Falun Gong, Zhen-Shan-Ren, Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, is the fundamental nature of life and the universe. The principle of self-cultivation in Falun Dafa is to assimilate yourself to these qualities, in other words, to cultivate your character to become an honest, compassionate, and tolerant person.
*CCP: Chinese Communist Party, responsible for the deaths of 60-80 million Chinese people since 1949. The entity that controls China and was used to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners since 1999.
*Organ Harvesting: According to OrganHarvestInvestigation.net, the Chinese regime has been using Falun Gong as a source for organs for transplants. Jailed practitioners whose organs match the tissue types of the transplant patients are operated on, their liver, kidneys, and corneas, (as well as, sometimes, skin) are cut out and the bodies are cremated. The organs are sold for some hundreds of millions of dollars in profits annually.
*Master: Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong. Referred to as “Master” or “Teacher” by Falun Dafa practitioners in accordance with Chinese customs.
*The Chinese Communist Party, in the name of single-party rule, atheism, and Marxist dictatorship, has single-handedly ruined 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture. In persecuting the practice of Falun Dafa, it set itself directly against the fundamental principles of the universe: Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. By brainwashing 1.3 billion Chinese into opposing Falun Dafa, the CCP has in this way also set these people, against their will, against these principles. By turning a blind eye to the persecution, the world's nations and media have also compromised their fundamental principles. Falun Dafa practitioners hope that all the world's people, in China, and elsewhere, can see what the CCP is doing, that it is evil, and that Falun Dafa practitioners should not be persecuted for following Truth, Compassion, Forbearance.
