The Should Not

Like other “isms”
Lofty goals
Hide deep contradictions
There is not one humanitarianism, but several
Dominated Face
Save and protect lives when disaster strikes
The blindness is a telling indicator of its strong isomorphism
‘you’ can join ‘us’ on our terms
But don’t expect any consideration.
If you don’t

In addition to being
An ideology, a movement, a profession
A compassionate endeavor
In which actors compete for market share
Humanitarian action also expanded accordion-style into new territories
The northern/western tip of the iceberg
The first line of defense for the most vulnerable
A banner that is used to justify a multitude of interventions
Two “souls” in the humanitarian

One focusing on the universal values of compassion and charity
One focusing on change and transformation of society
A form of containment in the last 20 years
Is nothing new
Have crossed the threshold of power and shall return to this later
Predictions are always dangerous
Especially about the future
When humanitarian action has drifted away from its principled moorings
We would need much bigger ears, smaller mouths
It seems the end of a myth 

Be My Care

That night
Millions of stars squeezed into the sky again
Haven't given up an inch of space
Not long ago
Accompanied by this same coast
Bit by bit turned into a passion in the chest
So surging
So shy again
It ’s hard to fight even the bad waves that slap on the shore

I can't find the armor that should have protected me
Ask spring breeze
It answered lazily
Ask Haiyan
Only got muttered again and again
Panic out of the confusion
Looking at the unfathomable sea
I am helpless
It's been long enough to leave in the dark
Let me stand up

Follow the original form that came here
Cannot be recalled
Colorful clothes floating in the clouds
Sea ambiguous lure
To jump down
Besides you
Can't find a trace of care in my heart 


The ferocious wave
Swallowed how much human sin
Forgot to take away
From me
That full of foam in the pool
That terrible silence around the pool

The wind howls
Ridiculed the world of mortals let red dust flying around
Can't interfere
Suspicion nowhere to hide
Panic nowhere to hide

In my mind
Did not lose a needle
Not a single thought has not been disturbed
The fish
It just stood in front of me
Besides the big eyes
Forgot to give me a shallow

Reef rocks stand grimly
Wait and see
The floating sea
The sea water turned between green and blue
The past and the future
When does the elegant seagrass will come
Secretly told to me
Bitterness of growth
Shouldn't be so quiet

Why not let
The bottom of my heart
Waiting for the youth
