Geetima Baruah Sarma

(April 26,1969 / Assam, India)

Break Free


We are born free,
Yet find ourselves,
Fastened with shackles.

Attachments confine us,
Inflict pain at times,
A search for solace sometimes.

We yearn to break free,
Escape and flee,
To somewhere unknown.

But can we live alone,
Or can we stay long,
In a place unknown?

Responsibilities summon us,
Relationships beckon us,
To bring us back to reality.
