The Freedom


Freedom, liberty and independence
Pillar of system to work par at excellence
It has its own meaning and stand
We, as people, need to understand

Freedom has no meaning if voice is muffled
Whole of the system is made mockery and laughed
The democracy is only in name
And there is nothing to claim

If moral values are not protected
If real basic is defied and neglected
Under such condition, it is proved useless
It has no powerful teeth to counter and face

The people must have freedom of expression
But that should not confine only to mention
No protest or regret to be aired with force
It will stand as joke and may look farce

Any society or group of people has choice
They can remind the law makers about provisions and promises
The stubbornness or insistence must be clearly seen
The value and respect for democracy should be the real scene

The arrogance and repression must be resisted
“Freedom of expression” means it should be rightly insisted
It is not untruth is projected by means of freedom
Such tactic is never appreciated and considered as wisdom

    i like it as it states what we truly know but atimes cant state, freedom means nothing without our ability to add to our development, freedom is slavery when we have no voice (Report) Reply

    I very much agree with this. If only the people in charge weren't there for the wrong reasons...

    Good job.

    Sheila Ann Anderson Thank you Hasmukh Mehta I do believe that I see your point in how you interpreted my words, but my point is more in that we cannot always get everyone to be on our side or to understand our point of view. There is nothing wrong with trying, but there is also nothing wrong with accepting the wisdom in the knowledge than you cannot win over everyone in life, nor is is really necessary to be able to do so.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
