What do you want from us?
- A Poem Dedicated to the last 150 years of this planet.
By a Slient, Silent Chinese.
When We were called Sick man of Asia, We were called The Yellow Peril.
When We are billed to be the next Superpower, We are called The China Threat.
When We were closed our doors, You smuggled Opium to Open Markets.
When We Embrace Freed Trade, You blame us for Taking Away Your Jobs.
When We were falling apart, You marched in your troops and wanted your “fair share”.
China was broken into pieces. And You killed, burned, maimed and looted,
Just go to the British Museum and The Louvre, which of those Arts and Relics were bought fair?
To be fair, When Woodrow Wilson Couldn’t give back Birth Place of Confucius back to Us, But He did buy a ticket for the Famine Relief Ball for us…
-A trickle of good will in a sea of despair.
Never again, we said, We stood up and fought for our survival.
And piece by piece we put our nation together again,
all of a sudden, “Free Tibet” you screamed, “it was an invasion!”
Never mind, that those who shouted caused the original suffering and pain.
When We Tried Communism, You hated us for being Communists
When We embrace Capitalism, You hate us for being Capitalists.
When We have a Billion People, you said we were destroying the planet.
When We are tried limited our numbers, you said It was human rights abuse.
When We were Poor, You think we are dogs. (Remember, Chinese and dog)
When We Loan you cash, You blame us for your debts.
When We build our industries, You called us Polluters.
When we made you consumer goods, You blame us for global warming.
When We buy oil, You called that exploitation and Genocide.
When You fight for oil, You called that Liberation.
When We were lost in Chaos and Rampage, You wanted Rules of Law for us.
When We uphold law and order against Violence, You called 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 were Brainwashed-Xenophobics.
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 AFP, 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.
