Break Free - Poem by Geetima Baruah Sarma

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.

    Beautifully penned, the truth in the reality of life
    the pain and heartaches, so eloquently written
    in this poem. (Report) Reply
