"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

IMAGINE

September 22, 2008

By Tsoltim N. Shakabpa

Imagine a free Tibet
Enjoying democracy
Imagine the whole nation
Living happily daily

Imagine the religious
Worshiping as they wish
Imagine all the people
Practicing their own culture

What a world it would be
Finding freedom's key
One world come true
One dream come true

You may think I'm a schemer
But I'm only a dreamer
I may not reach heaven
But I sure don't want hell

Imagine a democratic Ch ina
Respecting human rights
Imagine Chinese people
Celebrating free speech

Imagine China and Tibet
Living neighborly in harmony
Imagine if we can say
We are brothers and sisters

What a world it would be
What a future to see
One world come true
One dream come true

You may think I know it all
But I'm only a poet on call
I right the wrongs that people do
And write the rights we pursue

Imagine there's no fighting
Nothing to kill for
Imagine there's no wanting
Nothing to die for

Imagine a world in which
We forget our schemes
Imagine a world in which
We share our dreams

You can then say
The world is truly one
One world come true
One dream come true
