Border Guardian Spirit

By Tararith

Living in the Khmer land at the border
getting the food offerings from foreigners.
Getting separated from all children who used to make scrumptious food offerings.

As a Guardian Spirit I still safeguard the Khmer land to stay intact.
But some children abandon their land inheritance leaving behind the [ancestral] land that they used to enjoy.

Before there were Khmer food and language now those things are disappearingly gone.
I am the Guardian Spirit who is deeply worried seeing land-grabbing thieves near and far come to make food offerings.

Oh Khmer people I beg for your forgiveness please come cross the border to make food offerings to me.
Because I want to live longer avoiding any more poverty.
