Life that seeks Freedom


A drop enjoying the freedom
Ocean searching to merge
Grass laughed in the morning
The drop at the verge

Salty Ocean jumping
What we call serge
A step to freedom
But who will sing the dirge

Birds that fly,
Think whole world is our
A hunter waited for the chance
They shot or sly

We seek freedom with haze
Life inside the horrible maze
With slogan of freedom
Why do we have cage?

O thought, mind is your harbour
Killing or loving indeed minds flavour

    Love for freedom
    and freedom for love
    make cages out of cages
    make freedom for your minds
    so take the breeze so deep in your heart/ brother so bright I love it and it makes me fly thanks (Report) Reply
