Out of Fetters


Seeing the world after lonely days-
Walking on the earth anew
Like a new born child
Just waking up from slumber
And walking into a new life
With awe and wonder.

Exploring the lost world
once again, with tears
Opening the eyes slowly,
fingers trembling in fear
join together to thank God
The past shadow withers
The fresh air inhaled
says you are free

Silent slumber filled night
An old man walking far away
Dogs guarding the desolated street
Every life around rejoices
The steps of freedom
The lamps standing in order,
salutesThe old leaves rustle beneath
Fresh green leaves caress, with love
Shrieking cricket whispers
Your bad days are wiped away

A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
