Freedom

The freedom of expression that you enjoy

Has been equally granted to me

Yet I find you are stalking me

And spying on me

Keeping tabs on me.

In the garb of advice

Always telling me what to say

As well as reminding me

How you were always there before me

If you can’t handle my freedom

It is surely your problem dear

Certainly not mine.

  1. Oh, this is such an aptly written piece to coincide with India’s Independence Day. Unfortunately, many people we meet along the way are like this. They really offer back-handed advice that’s more judgmental than supportive. Your final lines speak volumes of truth: any issues another has is surely their issues. Love it. And, hope you had a wonderful Independence Day πŸ™‚
