I'M Flying Free - Poem by Neela Nath Das

Let the clouds sway with the wind,
Let there dance storm like Nataraja;
Let me uproot my soul, from its soil.
I cherish to fly from this fever,
From the weary way, of my trodden earth.
I'm a spirit who can't love, hate
Can't stick to my hackneyed soul...
Take me away away from this world,
where hatred has Medusa's head,
And the Dragon's breath...
I smell my dripping blood.
Trust won't search another,
Trust, leaving nothing, no
Bones, ashes, the burnt blood
Nothing...I'm flying free!

    Thats the spirit...
    Take me away away from this world,
    where hatred has Medusa's head,
    loved these lines..

    the soul is eternally free of all shackles... it's an objective witness to all our thoughts, emotions... we think we should set it free but soul is always beyond us! i enjoyed reading the poem and it lightened me so much that i felt myself a floating cloud! (Report) Reply

    First i am sorry Nila, but i dont know what is Nataraja? ? Well this poem play with contras emotion, some dark side but the mission is to be free...well i dont think hate is useful in any condition, and trust is to be doubt....These two, love and trust are the most precious ingredients to prepare a magical potion in working communication and appreciation of relationship....or did i misunderstood the poem....LOL keep writing :) _Unwritten SOul (Report) Reply
