Paramita Mukherjee Mullick
Freedom is in your mind
Scream for it, search for it
You will never find.
Freedom is being aware.
Freedom is showing others
that you care.
Freedom is respecting
Freedom is developing oneself,
further and further.
Freedom is not taking others
decency to be a weakness.
It is beautifying your inner being.
Not only your face.
Freedom is limitless
It cannot be defined.
It is something which
helps you to be more refined.
Freedom does not give you permission to exploit.
Nor give you license to hurt others
with feelings devoid.
Cherish freedom when you
Nurture your free life and advance it.
You only have one beautiful life to enjoy freedom.
You only have one beautiful mind
To spread happiness in God’s Kingdom
(Written after a visit to Dachau
concentration camp, Munich, 11/05/12)
Why is Man the biggest enemy of himself?
Doesn’t Man know, he is the image of himself?
laceration of human dignity?
Why this death from thousands to infinity?
cruelty to the other?
He too is someone’s son, someone’s father.
why have you gone through the vicious cycle of harm?
When you caused sorrow, didn’t your heart sound an alarm?
worse than death.
Hurting man till the end of his breath.
Why this torture, why this mental violence?
Let all wars, all cruelty cease.
Oh! Children of today,
wake up and
be a messiah of peace.
