-Set us free-

Beneath all the secretive conspiracy, 

Lies the truth in a manner of insufficiency.

Clogged memory, perplexed mind,

looking for something, don’t know what to find.

This was how the mind was designed,

To struggle for the truth and sanity.

And spread joy in the sake of humanity

Bend truth, presenting lies,

nothing to do except to have collective sighs.

Cutting connections, that we were asked to tie,

along the process, our hope starts to die.

Just before we start to give up, we are forced to realize

some twisted truth of life,

Making us question each other, arising strife. 

Oh God! set us free.

Show us the path in which we need to be.

Begging and screaming for mercy.

Tired of being pushed around and accused falsely.

Oh God! set us free.

Show us the path in which we need to be.

  1. For me it was like a beautiful hymn with a gentle rhyme. I honestly think you have not only grown as a person but also as a writer/poetess. I love how you talk about the cycle of life with the cycle of mind. You are getting better everyday a little more than yesterday and I am always falling head over heels for your writing. It gives me positive vibes while stating few facts. You have given words to the thought which is mentally and emotionally understood and realized. I don’t know why but I get the feeling as if it is so much more than just about life, but about somewhat the devotion that exists amidst us all. There are so many extreme mature and insightful ideas that you have projected and one of them is : “Cutting connections, that we were asked to tie,along the process, our hope starts to die.” I feel it talks about both internal and external unrest (relationships, natural disasters,losing humanity etc) and the sheer absence of peace. A very, very well-written poetry. Love it and love you!
