Freedom


I can't barter my freedom
Take away the riches with you
Don't display your dollars and pounds
To my countrymen who need freedom too

You can't cut my tongue short
It flexes swift and slip your hand
Winds of freedom would blow one day
Your vile attempts can't change the trend

I dream of my countrymen
Walking down the streets feeling proud
The pangs of hunger and poverty
Is packed and burnt in freedoms shroud

I dream of little children
With glowing faces and charming smiles
Rushing to schools in groups
Dressed in colours with impeccable styles

I dream of the girl child
Eyes bright with vision unbound
She has a dream of a world
Where hate and racism can't be found

She would charm all
With her beauty and sharp mind
I dream of her flying high
In all the fields leaving the men far behind

There would be freedom
To speak, to write, to work and to sing
No one would die of hunger
Peace and harmony every dawn would bring

    Beautifully written with great emotional impact.
    Men fight and die to be free then sell it back
    for false material comforts. (Report) Reply

    Its heartening to read something where the girl, the female, has been given her due share of importnace and such high hopes, without any gender bias, makes me like the poem al lthe more..thanks.. (Report) Reply

    Freedom is one of the basic need of man. Great patrotism and love for one's country and countrymen is upheld :) If girls of our country get proper education then the country will be free from poverty. Nice theme. (Report) Reply

    Freedom to speak, to write, to work and to sing. And to be yourself. Feeling the sorrows of your people and hoping for the better times. A good poem (Report) Reply
