Choose Your Fetters - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah

Choose Your Fetters...

Are free radicals truly free
Free from the tyranny of chemistry
The light from the logic of physics
The body from the diktats of biology
The heart from the moods of the seasons
The mind from the mischief of hormones…

What freedom
You are free only to
Choose your fetters;
Choose the one that perfectly fits your limbs
You see, choice actually matters
You can pick the design of your prison
Even, the size of the cell and
The color of the walls…

Choose with care…
