Treasure Island

Sudam Panigrahi

Freedom


When I want to

walk towards the east

time and situation

drag me towards the west

or at times take off with me

to ensure my crash

or belly landing.



I want to tell the truth

before that

they force me

to ponder

before opening my mouth

or force me to remain silent.

While telling a lie

Praise for no reason

are such easy jobs.





I'm but a prisoner

serving a life term

to compromise

and loss my freedom

and proudly furl tri-colour

to celebrate my (in) dependence

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
