Can I Go Back to Your Womb, Mommy?

Can I go back to your womb, mommy?
My life is so unfair and terrible
Can I hug you tonight, mommy?
Those people are so mean and cause me trouble
Can you hold my hands, mommy?
My enemy try to call me with a label

Can I go back to your womb, mommy?
I'm tired of facing the truth–so painful
Can I hug you tonight, mommy?
Those problems turn my life not so cheerful
Can you hold my hands, mommy?
I'm standing on a place which is so awful

Can I go back to your womb, mommy?
I feel lonely and sick of this world
Can I hug you tonight, mommy?
I have nothing more to be sold
Can you hold my hands, mommy?
I have neither faith nor religion to hold

Can I go back to your womb, mommy?
I never ask to be born like this
Can I hug you tonight, mommy?
What a cruel life it is
Can you hold my hands, mommy?
I feel like I fall into abyss

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
