POEMS

THE FREEDOM SONG

Liberation!
Not from the shackles of slavery
Not from the burden of sins,
Or the thirst for more than enough,

It is the liberation from futility
Years of chasing shadows
Has pushed me farther into the dark
I have lost myself and my soul,
I clawed at things that are not there.

Then! I heard the beatings of drums, from afar,
Freedom!
It pushed me out of my cave,
I shaded my eyes when I saw the
Light,
For the first time,I could see better
than I could in the dark,
This is what freedom feels like,
Now I am me and I am Free.

: Abdulazeez Kaothar.

I am not cute or built to suit a fashion model size, but when i start to tell them, they think am telling lies, i say, it is in the reach of my arms, the span of my hips. I am a woman phenomenally, phenomenal woman,that's me - Maya Angelou.

    Wish I could be free from it all,..
    From the world
    From caring
    From falsehood
    From ignorance
    From selfishness
    From life itself at times

    what is freedom?

    is it the freedom that allows nudity?
    the freedom that allows oppression?
    the freedom that allows corruption?
    the freedom that allows capitalism?

    what is the freedom?

    We clamor for freedom but when we get it, we must not misbehave or be an oppressor.

    To me , freedom is only possible in the spiritual world especially when u are so close to God. Only FEW people will understand me…
