The Voice Of Looted Treasures

Gorgeous Victorian building,
can not be where I belong;
All the 200 years,
I keep thinking my unforgettable hometown.
By guns and cannons,
they shipped me to a strange country;
My body and soul,
always wanna fly back to continue my legacy.
Facing western visitors reminds me
of their ancestors' fierce looting;
Hearing familiar voice occasionally sends me
an air of homesickness
Hundreds of years,
I kept dreaming the same dream;
One day,
I will be back to savor the home melody …
