Freedom to be Independent – A Dedication
Today is 15th August – My motherland, India, celebrates its 75th year of Independence. The day reminds me and I think all Indians, of the innumerable sacrifices of our freedom fighters. As a mark of dedication to those long-lost lives and relentless struggle, I have dedicated a poem “Freedom to be Independent”.
Freedom to be Independent
Why are your hands clutched under those brutal chains?
It must be hurting you a lot
Are you crying?
Oh Mother, how can I relieve you of your pains?
I am desperate to seek a path to free you
To find out the Freedom to be Independent
I promise you from my heart
One day I will shower your feet with flowers
How can I tolerate the torments
that tear you apart?
Throbbing and aching me every moment I pass
I am striving to gain courage
Churning my soul to be daunted and strong
Your hands are shivering dear Mother
Let me hold you
I won't rest till I free you from your shackles
Tears are rolling down your cheeks
Let me wipe them
I can't let you cry
You are my Mother, You are my God
Look at me I am your brave child
I am not weak anymore
I am not feeble anymore
The battle has begun Oh Mother
For the Freedom to be Independent
See the obstacles are bowing down before me
The hurdles are tumbling down before me
Oh Mother soon you will be free
I promise it won't be long
Have faith in your child
My pledge to flourish you with smiles is undeterred
Bless me Oh Mother
As I proceed towards victory
Can you see the bright sunlight over us?
Gracing our courage and bravery
Can you see the fruits of victory?
Awaiting to welcome us
Oh Mother how my eyes are yearning
To see your heavenly smile
The chains are vanishing
The shackles are fading
Victory is knocking at our doorstep
Oh Mother I can see your divine beauty
Your celestial charm is engulfing me
But why are my eyes drooping?
Why are my hands shivering?
Why are my legs trembling?
Are you crying again, Mother?
Look at my smiling face
I have triumphed in relieving your pain
That is my victory
That is my sacrifice
For the Freedom to be Independent
Smile dear Mother
As I move on to my next life.
“Mother” here is referred to my motherland India. And the poem reflects the feeling of the freedom fighters as they sacrificed their lives to free their motherland.

Victory is always knocking. We just have to answer the door.
As someone from Philippines, i can actually relate with this one as we also fought hard to get our independence. We were conquered by Spanish for more than 300 years and it took awhile for our country to get their freedom.
