[A Poem by a Silent, Silent Chinese]
26/06/08 17:58
I am...

feeling: Contemplative
listening to: Love In The Ice (Live at Soul Power, Tokyo Summit '07) - Tohoshinki

Dilated said to read AmbyrJayde's entry and give feedback... As soon as I read it, I was reminded of this poem.

It's very similar in the message behind it, but to be honest, this poem strikes me way more than mere racism. Racism is something you can't get rid of, anywhere, but some of the things mentioned in this poem have affected a nation far greater than just a few racist remarks.

Some of them are just so harsh... some of the things that the Chinese have had to go through are things nobody should have to face. Nobody.

"What do you want from Us?"
- by a Slient, Silent Chinese.

When we were called the Sick Man of Asia, we were the Yellow Peril.
When we are billed to be the next Superpower, we are a threat.

When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to our markets.
When we embraced Free Trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs.

When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your “fair share”.
When we were putting the broken pieces together again, “Free Tibet” you scream, “it was an invasion!”

So, we tried communism, you hated us for being communists.
When we embraced capitalism, you hate us for being capitalists.

When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.
When we tried limiting our numbers, you said it is human rights abuse.

When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.
When we loan you cash, you blame us for your debts.

When we build our industries, you called us polluters.
When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.

When we buy oil, you call that exploitation and genocide.
When you fight for oil, you call that liberation and democracy.

When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you wanted rule of law for us.
When we uphold law and order against violence, you call that violating human rights.

When we were silent, you said you want us to have free speech.
When we were silent no more, you say we are brainwashed racists.

Why do you hate us so much? We asked.
“No,” you answered, “We don’t hate You.”

We don’t hate you either,
But do you understand us?

“Of course we do,” You said,
“We have NBC, CNN and BBCs…”

What do you really want from us?
Think hard first, then answer…

Because you only get so many chances,
Enough is enough, enough Hypocrisy for this one world.

We want one world, one dream, and peace on Earth.
This big blue Earth is big enough for all of Us.

This poem was written during all the free-Tibet and boycott-China-Olympics commotion. I will not boycott. I will watch it on my tv screen and follow every single minute of it as I am unable to be present personally, something which disappoints me greatly, but I will give my wholehearted support to China and wish them every success.

Those who scream for a free Tibet and an Olympic boycott... Whatever. My opinion of you is now very low. Learn some facts about the place before you start making ignorant claims.

Anyways, onto other news, I need a job. Started applying already. Hopefully I'll get a job :)

I'm gna miss someone greatly. Let's call him L. L just called me... He's finally arrived in Taiwan. I won't be able to see him for 2 and a half months ;_; Sigh...

Oh, and today, I found out my friend's bf cheated on her so she's broken up with him. She's really upset over it... Ugh that btard. Seriously, when I get my hands on him, I'm gna--ehhem, okay, nevermind, I'll keep this post PG-13 =] But yeah... Ugh. What an arse!!! >_<;; I'm taking her out for a pudding tomorrow though. Hopefully that'll cheer her up some :)

While I don't believe in boycotting the Olympics considering what they stand for, I do believe Tibet should be free. I always have and always will.

Hun, considering your age cheating boyfriends and girlfriends are not uncommon. I knew a guy who had a gf a year older and when he became a senior he dumped HER to be "free".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tibet#History They were Tibet and not under China's rule first. The way you feel then Taiwan should be apart of Japan since it was under their rule for a long time too. Taiwan was Taiwan long before it was under Japan's rule just as Tibet was Tibet before it became under China's rule. Then again I also think if Hawaii wants to become their own country again they should be.

Yeah all the guys were like "you go dog!" and all the girls were stunned. He told her when she became a senior that they would be together forever because he was a junior. Then again I think anyone between the age 15-19 stupid crap like that happens to them a lot. It's hard to find someone you know won't screw you over. I guess in my case it paid to be so picky. XD

very true. people always never admit their own mistake first. they first like to blame others and themselves last or never.

[when you decided to call him L, it reminded me of Deathnote. ha XD]
Nobody is happy with what they get; not in America.. I get tired of our disfigured attitudes, especially with other countries and "minorities". eh... >=|

Good luck finding a job! I hope you find one that suits you well. =)

how do u edit the colours of the banner at the top of the site. :(
» G-Prometheus on 2008-06-30 06:22:26

lol. sorry to bother you again.. i experimented on the codes you gave only the font colours changed how about the background colour?
» G-Prometheus on 2008-07-02 04:55:36

ahhh, Kuri-chan
I got this poem, too, but it never had an 'author'. Mmm, I'm not boycotting nor am I a Free-Tibet sympathizer. I'm not against them and I'm not in agreement. Either way, I don't think the two of us know enough. We were never taught Asian history properly--beyond whatever tidbits our parents deign to feed us.

I need to get going on the job thing, too. =P
