Nothing ever last,
Such are graphic remains,
Who once upon a time,
Questions probably the same?
Spinning in my head…

Another legacy of Pol Pot!
I don’t ask for eternity but justice,
Today bones, yesterday vibrant beings,
Tell me such empty logic,
Before my faith choose to let go…

What were their names?
Their dreams, hopes and faiths,
Still under the tortures,
Who was there?
Holding their hands?

Can make any sense of it all,
And history keep repeating itself,
Postcard from Cambodia,
Death, tortures, killing field,
I guess nothing ever last…


Author's Notes/Comments: 

photos/ fimed by me in 2007/2008 when i lived in Cambodia. Saloth Sar (May 19, 1928[2][3][4][5][6] – April 15, 1998), better known as Pol Pot, (Khmer: ប៉ុល ពត), was the leader of the Cambodian communist movement known as the Khmer Rouge[7] and was Prime Minister of Democratic Kampuchea from 1976–1979. His time as the leader of Cambodia, in which he attempted to "cleanse" the country, resulted in the deaths of an estimated 1.7 to 2.5 million people.

i bless Cambodian peoples for the wonderful welcome they mademe feel and they welcome to spend living in their country, i shall be back. love Herve xxx
