Who has really the boon of freedom in the world?
Plants, animals, men or birds want freedom forever;
Peace and happiness everybody loves to enjoy here.
The joy everyone enjoys is not ready to sacrifice ever;
The strongest dominates to maintain its freedom ever.
Survival depends upon the favourable situation only;
Life goes on for all living beings big or small somehow.
Living on land, swimming on sea and flying in air there’s
Survival of many beings in the world striving for satiation.
Land survivors cannot live in the sea and fly in the air;
Survivors of both on land and sea cannot fly in the sky;
Living on land man can survive on sea but not in the sky;
Of all the creatures only sea gulls and albatross survive
On land, sea and sky as they only have boon of freedom!

    This prosaic read certainly invites discussion, Ramesh. If we were to juxtapose creatures for survival in the triangle of land, sea and sky - are we to feel satiated that only the 'strong' shall survive? Or is it that 'survival depends upon the favourable'? If 'sea gulls and albatross survive/On land, sea and sky as they only have boon of freedom! ', what makes other 'creatures' less favourable to obtain this position?
    A thoughful write, indeed. Thanx for sharing.
