Error 404: Democracy!

I try my best to live my life,

You come up to me, selling all these lies,

Killing my hope and trying to blow my mind.

Honestly, the fact that, you think I’m a threat,

Made me realise, I’m already perfect.

Stop your unnecessary hatred, for I know art is the need of the hour,

Let us be and let us bring that art to life, which you want to censor.

Oh my, that hurts your tolerant brain,

Oh my, but you said the idea of intolerance is just in our brain!

Scaring us of, by attempting to hurt us and our family,

Man, now this just crosses the line, silly.

I tried to stay out of this cat-fight,

But it’s about time, I bring these facts in to the light.

Freedom may be just a myth,

Cause, privacy doesn’t even exist.

PS. Did I mention this applies to those only who are innocent!

“Let the crime happen,

Then let’s blame everyone else, it’d be fun.

We’ll slide in to those DM’s by our media,

Cause, who on earth actually cares about sources!

Solving the problem temporarily, is how we roll,

Ruling for 5 years, indefinitely is our goal.

Development will be provided, to our team,

And let’s give the public a new topic to bash about.”

I’m sick and tired of the politicizing of the smallest of things,

Well, what can we expect from the people who would actually prefer an animal to a human.

Here’s a newsflash guys, humans are animals too,

Large species eat smaller species,

That’s simple science!

Sorry, you guys may not understand that,

Maybe because, one of you believe, artificial satellites existed centuries ago.

We gave the world zero,

But you make us look zero.

Then there those, who feel nepotism rocks.

Why is it so hard for you guys to see?

That democracy is efficient only when the nation is corruption and red-tapism free!

We need security and safety,

Sometimes, we seek some transparency.

Stop trying to curb our freedom,

To speak, to eat and to love,

Let go of your laundering skills

And actually give us development.

Give us education, and get yourself educated

Give us jobs, and get yourself some taxes

Give us better public infrastructure, and get yourself our trust.

And, maybe we will share the happiness, by giving you the power for the next 5 years and getting back the ‘JUST’.

 

In all honesty, we have fallen a lot to build the empire that stands tall today, but, we shouldn’t forget, who we are and what actual freedom is. We chose democracy, for stability and growth, but if it fails to deliver that, then something is wrong.

Are We Really Free!

Are we really free?

29,1

                Modern times; Modern thought, yet living in hypocrisy.

                Democracy prevails; Democracy is the key, yet restrictions still lives.

                He does this; She does that, still a concern for the society that’s lazy.

                Oh what a pity, we don’t follow the order, because that’s the dream, it seems.

                Born a boy, be an engineer or auditor, it’s fixed.

                Or join the family business, you shouldn’t argue with this.

                Born a girl; Love, you are lucky to be born!

                So, go ahead and study medicine or do arts, that would be enough,

                Argue with this, and you’d be married off.

                *Society does a witty laugh*

                “Oh, I have an idea!” said an over-excited teen,

                “Follow the system or you’ll break your spleen!”

                “I’d love to live here; I’d love to study here; I’d love to work here!”

                “You’re required to a pay a small processing fees my dear.”

                “Oh, such a gifted voice you have, it’s sad you are doing a job” said every other aunty

                ‘Weren’t you the one to advice me that I won’t succeed and forced my parents for a job’ thought the young lady.

                “Come home by 9.” Said a concerned mom to her daughter,

                “But, why does he get to stay out the whole night.” She pointed her finger towards her brother!

                ‘Apparently, men are victims of rape’ society believes!

                “Raise them to respect women!”

                “Oh you are so weak, a guy doesn’t cry. Don’t be such a sissy.”

                ‘I’m a human, and we do end up being emotional at some point of time.

                But, why it is okay to be a tomboy but to be a sissy is not okay!’

                “He loves him. She loves her. He loves her. She loves him.”

                Wish love was this simple. But some believe it is unnatural.

                There’s a ban on spreading love, what’s tomorrow, it’s sophistical.

                One can’t have a say on what one should eat,

                Wait, was it mentioned that it’s a democratic nation we live in?

                Why throw the garbage in dust bin?

                Doing everything illogical and not calling it a sin,

                Well that’s something.

                Let’s see how the story ends;

                “Hey, I have an opinion!” shouted a common man.

                “Your voice will die, just like the others did.” Whispered thousands of men!

Oh, we are definitely free!

                Wars are fought; hatred is spread. Why is it necessary?

                Live in peace and come together, isn’t that what humanity is supposed to be?

                30.1 copy

                This may not be a situation everywhere, but it is a major concern. Please don’t turn a blind eye towards these concerns. Development takes place by coming together, not by killing each other!

              Do let me know what you think of this. You are welcome to share it! Will be back with another post. Until then just LIVEyOURLIFE!
