Life-Yesterday & Today

I remember those days of childhood, when I used to watch the sky.

I felt like a bird then, which was soaring high.

Today when I see out, the sky is the same and so are the clouds

But I am no more a free bird to fly high throughout.

The wind blowing out calls me.

The fresh air asks me.

But I am captivated in this cold box,

where I am able to perceive but not able to talk.

The walls around me are transparent

But I am not able to see through them.

Huge cement trees surround me.

I feel I am caged and I have nowhere to flee.

The complete day I feel like a robot,

Working on keys that can’t open the doors,

the doors of my independence and my liberated mind.
