Nazmul Haque

Rookie (1st March,1978 / Sirajgang, Bangladesh)


Man is born free,
but everywhere he is in chain-
Our life has become nothing but to say 'no'...
don't do this, don't do that,
just close up yourself
in safety and security,
never take any risk,
never move on the unknown way....
Our life has become just staying back-
never to take part in the action!

Our life has become suppression-
a continuous suppression...
But don't forget that whatever you suppress,
you are never free of it;
when you repress something
it goes deeper into your unconscious mind,
and sets up a strong home in there,
It reaches to your very roots
and poisons your whole being.

whatever you suppress
Deep inside, you will always carry it
like a shadow following its substance
your suppressed desire will always haunt you
like a ghost.

Set your spirit free
Don't make your heart a prisoner
of the prison-cell,
let your heart's desires
find a way out
to taste the open air and light
of the free earth.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
