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!

A scar of war.

Lost in the world of the hate, a lone lady tried to survive.

Every day she’d toil so hard, with a fear of being shot at alive anytime.

Running around, doing her chores, she never bothered about anyone,

Except for her sick and bed-ridden love, trying to recover.

He may have been the best of his regime, but he lost his future forever,

That’s what the world thought of that war veteran.

Fighting in his fifth battle, colder became his aggression;

Becoming more wise, he started to become more human.

A novice, a friend, entered his the field with passion,

Without realising he was entering into a trap,

He would have lost his life if it weren’t for his old chap.

Our man almost lost his life trying to protect a life of his comrade.

His friend, tried everything to make his life better,

But alas, the path of violence always ends up being bitter.

They understood the values, they once thought, that never made sense.

The idea of kindness and spreading happiness,

Oh the benefits of non-violence!

Although our veteran was paralyzed, he believed life goes on when there’s hope.

“Oh darling, why didn’t you choose a life, that had a better scope?”

The wife cried when she heard he’d never be able to walk again,

“Love, dying for protecting people I love is an honour;

But sometimes, it requires the ability to bear forever, a scar.

But, why I did choose this path, I shall never regret.

But if I don’t spread the idea of peace, that feeling would be worse than death.”

The concept of violence and hatred has destroyed lives of millions over the years.  It’s time we wake up and be the human we actually are.

It’s time to #StandUpForHumanity. Share your views and thoughts on this and spread happiness wherever you see fit, because we already have many haters. Love is all we need now and forever.

I’ll be back with yet another amazing post, until then, just #LIVEyOURLIFE.
