Faces of China

An Australian Practitioner

PureInsight | August 20, 2006


I see the fear

behind your coldest face

relentless tears

falling without a trace

how long can you hide

torture innocent eyes

a wall's stranglehold

guarding endless lies.

I see the truth

devoured by a ravenous beast

disguised as a host

to a friendly feast

by state propaganda

and a brutal control

forging a "Party's" power

a country losing soul.

I see the light

beyond your darkest face

hope to new horizons

despite this barren place

calling to the world

upon a rising dawn

come many hearts awakened

crossing thresholds from faces forlorn.
