This poem was written by Tom Tam and sent to Mónica after her successful, first Tong Ren seminar in Spanish, held in Puerto Rico.




The wings of liberty

A snowstorm is coming,

The wings of fliers are flapping

Lonesome against the squall.

Alongside with the wild waves,

Carefree gliding as the mission of a flier.

Proudly laughing

And be laughed at by the proud,

Never lose the soaring ambition.


Roaming wherever with the wind,

Keep flapping the wings of liberty.

Enjoy the creation of God,

The blue sky, sunshine

And the storm as well.


How can ones fear cover freedom?!

The sunny tomorrow must arrive.
