- of the people, by the people, for the people

Inside Burma,
the long walk to freedom is not romantic.

Outside Burma,
the road to the ‘peopledom’ is not dramatic.

Inside Burma
the escape to victory is not lunatic.
Outside Burma,
our prayer to the saffron revolution is not inauthentic.

Inside Burma,
the junta’s Burmese way to democracy is not democratic.

Outside Burma
the ‘journey’ to the third country is not poetic.
