Be Independent - Poem by MAHTAB BANGALEE
Come to the poems,
Come and live with poems,
Live, and live in the kingdom of poems,
Because I know you need independence,
You want to live long and you want independence,
You want independence -
in love, lover and beloved,
in writing, reading, and speaking,
in feelings and thinking,
in eating and drinking,
in awakening, sleeping, and dreaming,
in politics, sociology, municipality, and economics,
in religion, belief, and disbelief,
in true and false,
in hue and caste,
in race and nation,
in mental satisfaction,
in everything you want independence,
in everything you need independence.
So, dear, you need to come to the kingdom of poems.
You have to come to poems to get your full independence.
the poems teach how to know yourself,
the poems teach how to discover yourself,
the poems teach how to rule over yourself,
the poems teach how to come and be part of the immortal soul,
the poems teach how to sympathize for other sorrow,
the poems teach how to be thoughtful of self and conscientious.
the one who recognizes himself is independent,
the one who discovers himself is independent,
the one who rules over himself is independent,
the one who comes and becomes the part of the immortal soul is independent,
the one who makes himself thoughtful and conscientious is independent.
In all lessons of life, poems make -
magnanimous heart, broad mind,
kind sight, a helpful hand,
concerned and humane feet.
Dear, please come,
Come to the poems to be the humane scent,
Come to the poems to be independent.
