Free To Be Me - Poem by Asma Zenjali

Walking on a road
Through trees shadow
Looking for a way out
Where i can feel
Free to be me
Closing my eyes
Not willing to see
The diffrence between them and me
Outside, they feel proud
being them in the same crowd
While i am always realized
As being me..
Cursed, treated as a weak
Because i am unlike! I look freak
Being white means strong
But when i write
They are wrong
For not accepting me
As a man from diffrent race
Why should it be a big case
But still, i do hide
Not afraid to be rejected
But just to feel
Free to be me..!

    Sincere feelings very well penned. Discrimination in any form is a sin as we all are children of the same God. As for colors we feel proud that Lord Krishna and Lord Rama were dark complexioned but they won the hearts of the people. I am of the view that we too are to be blamed for it as we develop some sort of inferiority complex within us that makes us suffer. If this complex is not there in us we too can boldly assert ourselves, else the others take advantage and repress. Anyways, a good attempt, Asma. (Report) Reply

    lovely poem
    I am also of the opinion that a man should not be judged based on his color, social standing or education, he should be weighed based on his content, and that is in every way our character

    They are wrong
    For not accepting me
    As a man from diffrent race... it is challenging to stand firmly to what you are.. colour, race, religion, knowledge, wisdom. Be yourself because nobody can be you in this world. you are powerful when you say i want to be me. thank you.

    ''Not willing to see
    The diffrence between them and me''

    those differences are just the surface details that only void minds think to be important, so to deny any 'human brotherhood'. But the point is just that we are all human beings, with no real differences..
    Thanks for sharing, dear Asma
