For What - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Are you really flying
Mr tortoise and if so
Why are you flying, my dear
Is it your foolishness
And why is it that
You are not entitled to fly
I know not your decision
To fly is wrong, no never
I must say you are to fly
It is your birth right
You can do whatever you like
And since I am within you
You can fly that I guarantee
But not with the help of
Others who are helpless creatures
You can fly, my dear by dint of
Your own efforts that are there
With you, see again and try again
To fly, it is not the dream
It is the reality in this world
try again and again but be cautious
Flying is not a big game, do you not know
It is as easy as anything like
The act of respiration
It is as natural as birth and death
And living here but you have to
make it a habit by constant effort, my dear.
