FREEDOM

In Uncategorized on August 15, 2009 by Sukrit

Freedom from fear is the freedom
I claim for you my motherland!
Freedom from the burden of the ages, bending your head,680945-3-let-the-fire-purify-my-soul-rabindranath-tagore
breaking your back, blinding your eyes to the beckoning
call of the future;
Freedom from the shackles of slumber wherewith
you fasten yourself in night’s stillness,
mistrusting the star that speaks of truth’s adventurous paths;
freedom from the anarchy of destiny
whole sails are weakly yielded to the blind uncertain winds,
and the helm to a hand ever rigid and cold as death.
Freedom from the insult of dwelling in a puppet’s world,
where movements are started through brainless wires,
repeated through mindless habits,
where figures wait with patience and obedience for the
master of show,
to be stirred into a mimicry of life

by Rabindranath Tagore
