Poem: Independence

Independence 
Isn't merely a word,
Isn't just an idea!

Independence 

Is the freedom to live and 
Love your identity as an Indian

Freedom 
Isn't just a word

Independence 
Is physical, mental, and intellectual 
Freedom from servitude

Thoughts free! 
Not imposed
And
Not implanted;
To live with

Freedom
Isn't just a word

Independence 
Is the freedom to choose,
To choose the dreams, 
And the right to pursue them
With resources and opportunities to live them

Opportunities equal!
Not reserved
And 
Not discriminated.

Freedom 
Is not imposed choices,
Not endless struggle to survive,
Not the life's achievement of just survival, 
Fulfilling basic needs

Freedom
Is 
Safety, equality, and respect.

Freedom 
Is the life 
With free thoughts, dreams, and the life to dreams;
A life 
With endless practicalities
To live freely,
Merrily
