Best Poem of Josey Tom

Individual Vs Society

I wanted to read
But they expected me to plead
I wanted to fly
But they clipped my wings

I was proud in my colour
But they bought me fairness creams
I insisted on my content
But they insisted on my 'package'

I wanted to cry
But they never allowed me; lest I become less male
I shouted my name
But they never heard it; they were interested only in my surname

I wanted them to look at my eyes
But they checked whether I wore Nike or Adidas
I dislike seeing them
But they come to me as uninvited guests in my thoughts, sleeps and dreams
