True Independence

by Preetham Kopparam
(Gauribidanur, Karnataka)

Veiled eyes filled in
freedom dreams
With hands confined
while toes on wheels
Self flight struck
but adding wings
Living ironies
In tragic shades!

Pitch for peace
still sound hollow
Strength immense
yet seem shallow
Conventional roots
exile in guise
Though branches new
emerge in poise!

Realize the truth and give time a break
Melt down reservations
Fly beyond the borders
Amputate the bars
Liberate the bonds
take a stiff stance indulge yourselves
witness the transition-
the true Independence!
