No Real Freedom


Almighty might have certainly thought
Before granting freedom concept
All souls were to be of same class
Roam wherever they wanted and relax

That might have formed the basis
Olden sayings too go with same thesis
All quotes make it with loud appearance
Offer us solace in crisis at once

God forgot to take one aspect into account
It might have not occurred that human beings may flout
All general norms and disobey during stay
Before they commit all sins and come away

Yes, but it was too late now for correction
Some of the noble people understood the right action
They followed right path and stayed for humanity
The brotherhood and peace was the message from almighty

Many people took it as birth right
Even birds and animals were chained and kept tight
Their movement was restricted and forbidden
Even more weight was imposed or laden

The lust had no stoppage
The elders too disregarded an age
The children are given useless education
Peace and respect and has lost the relation

Freedom has been misinterpreted
It is conveniently kept and related
Freedom in face is main cause of dissent
In real terms it is far from present

Humanity deserves condemnation
For failure to keep divine tradition
“Live and let others live with harmony”
That is clear message from almighty

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
