Introduction: He disturbed me, because he forced me to examine the reasons behind my hatred of my Chinese name (Ka Hon).
Exile, separation and divorce,
You witnessed them at all,
Persecution, violence, killings,
You felt all.
Remained true to yourself, true to the little voice in your heart,
Loyal to your friends from the first day,
Loyal to justice, peace, fairness and statehood,
Loyal to people living in cages,
Help your people, be them living in London, New York and Paris, remember who they are,
Help them remember where their real homes are.
“ Why do you call yourself Jonathan?” still hangs my heart.
“ Why do you call yourself Jonathan? Why call yourself Jonathan? How come…How come…”
Yes, I hate my name,
Yes, I hate my name!
Yes, I have been polluted,
Yes, I have no power to change myself.
