Freedom - Poem by Nikunj Sharma

Let's sing the freedom song
Along the road of dogma littered dust
Footsteps cracking traditional crust
Steel emerging from the rust

Let's blow the freedom whistle
With the air that's free of smoke
A spirit that grows with every stroke of the clock

Let's lead a life that breaks free
Like a leaf leaving throes of tree
Cliches, practices and old thoughts
Beyond what we seek and what we sought

Let's breathe freedom on this day
New sunshine and a sunny day
New foundations, new castles
Dreams meant for only a few
Wish Happy independence day to you

    A very positive write. Your second stanza
    is especially stirring and gallant. I hope
    there will be many happy returns of
    your Independence Day.

    Those who had been in chains, have been tortured and imprisoned fighting for freedom and independence, knew what was meant by the word 'freedom'! Our
    generations know only the dictionary meaning! 10!
