In This Life I Saw - Poem by Kathup Tsering

a man
devoid of limps
lying on the ground
a headless horse
its hair bristled
for fear of the wind
in this life I saw.

a soldier
dead in the battlefield
a broken gun upon his head
a gun
that fell him down
in this life I saw.

a child
struggled across the snow-mountains
left his parent back home
over the snowy pass
he lost his toes
in this life I saw

    Life is ugly too and for some ugly for ever.
    Let us not forget to dream beautiful life.

    Kathup, you've exposed very tortuous and troubled images, sights that should never be seen by anyone... difficult to even comprehend by most of the world.
