screaming from the hills of dharamsala… screaming from the streets of new york

I am tired, 
I am tired doing that 10th March ritual, 
screaming from the hills of Dharamsala.

I am tired, 
I am tired selling sweaters on the roadside, 
40 years of sitting, waiting in dust and spit.

I am tired, 
eating rice ‘n’ dal 
and grazing cows in the jungles of Karnataka.

I am tired, 
I am tired dragging my dhoti 
in the dirt of Manju Tila.

I am tired, 
I am tired fighting for the country 
I have never seen.

-Tenzin Tsundue, 1999

  1. Great photos and poem. I especially appreciate the second photo–the reflection in the water.
    Shanti Om

    • hi there, thanks so much for your kind words, you have an impressive blog yourself. i’d love to know more about your interest and writings on Native Americans– are you working on a project about it? I’m amazed by the documents you’ve posted up too… look forward to talking about it one of these days.
