Shackled..

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers



Is freedom so hard to find
From bonds, yet harder to flee
Like chains that cut into my hands
I struggle, as you laugh with glee

I struggle still as you laugh
While blood seeps from tethered wrists
Yet rays of hope still burn bright
As tears gush down my cheeks.

The dark cloaks me in its cold
And I dream of shackles freed
You rage as wrath fills your soul
While with freedom I quietly tread

The dawn brings with it another day
Chained to bonds, yet harder to flee
Still I struggle with all my might
 And hope as you laugh with glee

  5. Rousseau is right: "Man is born free, but is in chains everywhere." We forge some, others do the rest!
