Poem by Keshav Ghimirey- Bhutanese refugee settled to Austin

Bear-footed, hungry stomach, with no national identity, we are refugee

Hunted by both the Government and the God, we are refugee//

 

Deserting lovely house without being noticing dusk, dawn or starless night,

vacating our dwelling place with bear foot and without a grain of rice in stomach, we are refugee//

 

Roofing under the deep blue skies and bared earth as loving bed,

Young, old, adult , maiden and all we are refugee//

 

Hopes, aspiration entangled till we are alive and difficult to forget awesome panic,

Deserting homeland enridden upon relatives corpse without being mercy, we are refugee//

 

No signals of Human Rights, no place to report our claim,

Survival, we beg for Human Right, we are refugee//

 

No regret of bygone days, shattered with tears and blood,

We opt for freedom now, we are refugee//
