15th Of August 2014 - India's Independence Day.

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.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
