Well-Trained Obedience - Poem by Suraj Samtani

For how much longer will I live life on rent?

When will I ever do that for which I'm sent?



I'm tired of listening to orders.

I'm fed up of living within borders.



For once let me step out.

For once let me scream & shout.



I cannot be obedient all my life.

Just let me test the sharpness of my knife.



I don't even know how to live otherwise.

I've been too well trained to act wise.



O pray, I discover my true self.

O pray, I abandon my fake self.
