15th Of August 2014 - India's Independence Day. - Poem by Hardik Vaidya

Freedom is kept, never won.
Treasured in the womb of our consciousness.
Practised every passing moment.
Grown, tendered, nurtured, across time.
Rooted in the individual minority of us all.
It never dies, was spoken about in every epoch past.
Indestructible by fire, wind, water and nature.
Given by god, to gods within.
Burning bright incessantly,
Brining light of knowledge, diversity and dissent.
Ever aligned to the supreme sublime.
We live free, forever.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Mankind was never enslaved by external forces, sections of it chose willingly to be stripped of their freedom. Freedom is a cosmic truth and is ever present regardless of time.

    'Born free, but fettered everywhere'...... It is a contrary thought! So which is correct.... so disputable! To some extent man's freedom and slavery are within man himself! Enjoyed this poem... a little off the track! (Report) Reply
