Freedom for the Nation🇮🇳

Listen while you read🎶🎧💫

Happy Independence Day India.. Have a great year ahead!🧡🤍💚

Around 74 years ago,
For some 340 million Indians,
Freedom was a billion things.
For that enslaved country,
Freedom was CHAOS,
No sense of what might come.
For its youth,
Freedom was an OPPORTUNITY,
A shot to explore the world.
For its leaders,
Freedom was BETTER~
Chances, voices and choices.
For its soldiers,
Freedom was PRIDE,
To serve under their own flag.
For its rich,
Freedom was MORE~
Money, wealth and luxury.
For its poor,
Freedom was SHACKLES,
Openly witnessing it, yet tied up.
(freedom wasn’t free for them)
For its women,
It was an invaluable TREASURE,
Finer than any pearls and jewels.
For 340 million people,
Freedom was a billion things.
But what mattered was,
For the entire nation,
Freedom meant one thing,
Hope for independency.
And hope for a change.

Now and today, 2021,
For over a billion Indians,
This freedom means a trillion things.
We still want more~
riches, opportunities and chances.
We still want better~
livings, voices and leaders.
We are free to have our choices,
But our choices aren’t really free.
We are independent of other nations,
But our independency doesn’t lie on ourselves alone.
Now and today, 15th August, 2021
The entire country,
Unites to celebrate what freedom was,
And what it might be…
But I will take a breath,
To enjoy what freedom really is,


*Also death, but that is a completely different poem..😏* Hope you enjoyed reading this one.. Have a great day❤ Jai Hind, Jai Bharat!!🇮🇳
