Freedom and Joy

Through the labyrinths of a rigid society,
Gropes for freedom –
A shackled mind

Probing the myriad depths of the universe
Is an unfeeling heart –
In quest for joy

Alas! we know not,
To search within ourselves,

To look at the rendition of life
Not heed the blemish,
But, to rejoice in its blessings, is mirth itself

To unshackle the mind from prejudice and bias,
Rise above narrow divisions;
Is what freedom is all about.
