Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla


Freedom


Bird in a cage
Set free
Soaring in the sky…
Freedom
All cherish
Reaching a new high

Statue of Liberty's
Raised torch of hope
Liberty Bell
Sending chimes
From years gone by
Iconic symbols
Of freedom and peace

Truthful path of ahimsa
Mahatma Gandhi laid
Relentless effort and passion
Nelson Mandela made
Nations greet each
Stalwart of freedom

We all seem to devalue
What we have in hand…
Freedom's duty
And responsibility
Freedom's precious
Let's not forget
Protect thy freedom
Also protect others'…

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
