Freedom

For you our fathers fought
Loud in their ears rang your cheers
Bidding them to partake of your luscious fruits
Our mothers worked their fingers to bone
Your unbecoming price tag to detach

Parched and worn-out they emerged
Into the rich vastness of your bosom
All over them a wave blew
Calm and soothing, it was a first
How could they have survived without you?

Alas! It was not exactly like they dreamt
the dawn of reality broke and even
without shackles, trapped and bound they felt
Conditions and terms always apply
Lo, a greater quest was birthed

Who dare raises a fuss?
We all are make-believe gurus
The scripts are locked in our heads
The desire to deliver drives us hard
and to the yoke of expectations, we succumb

But, fantasies make our heads swell,
In our dreams we are free to roam
A pair of preying eyes deny us that much
Conformity is the rule of the game
Millions are masters at the game

Obey all the rules, blend with the trend
Defy the rules, face the music
It is for you our hearts ache
This longing in our soul only you can fill
Freedom land; when shall we gaze at your heavenly portals?
