Beyond the boundaries


broken_boundaries

Boundaries are invisible to me,

For I don’t think eerily.

Flying is all I know,

Careless, carefree, to and fro.

They keep fighting over borders, castes and religions.

To stop they created some barriers.

But it affects me not, as my wings are of a traveller.

What I can see around,

Is only and only an endless sky,

Which is unbound.

Though I tried, tried really hard,

Still my waves hardly listen.

And cross the edges,

Fast, furious and quite harsh.

They try to cut me into pieces,

Fasten my waves to some inches.

Also they act like I am a mother!

Yes, I am one,

But the one who hardly ever shudders.

Trust me, I am everywhere.

Sometimes in the groves, somewhere in the gardens,

And high up on the hills.

Neither I like much of your attention,

Nor I am ready to blow unknown.

Whirling, fluttering and whisking,

My breezes blow above the horizons, that you proudly own.

” Boundaries do not keep people out, but they fence us in.”

 Born with the curse of poverty,

In a pit of a Hell,

I never got the chance to dream like,

Everyone else.

Always haunted by the phantom of tomorrow,

I wasn’t allowed to dream,

But was someone who just grow up,

Chasing a gleam.

One fine day, they came to me,

Telling me, I can also live.

And have a right to dream.

Endowed me a book in my hand,

And a meal in other to keep me going unrestrained.

I learnt how to write,

Had a daily meal to eat with pride.

 I began to see,

 Even in the darkness of night.

 Finally, I started hoping a Life.

Every next day,

Was an adventure in itself.

My journey from home to school,

Was like hell to heaven.

As we say,

Good days are rare,

 And bad ones keep stare,

One common day,

They served us poison,

Carelessly or consciously,

Which I don’t know.

But they killed the spirit,

Inside a nurturing Soul.

They killed that single hope,

Which I fear,

Will hardly ever grow!

I
