4th July, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer


On nation flags blood red is seen

Blue for time and land as green

For freedom fought on battle field

Stripes shout “No!” to slavery yield

White for peace and equal share

A proud and independent air

Thought out symbols all provide

Ideals by which we should abide

Flags waving freely and exclusive

Freedom beckoning remains elusive

Declarations of freedom are but lies

For we are bound by a thousand ties

Like tethered calf in field of grass

No scope to roam or freely pass

Feels free not knowing any better

So no struggle to untie the fetter

Man’s quest for freedom’s not in vain

Driven from thirst and hurt of pain

Freedom’s way is in hallowed verses

Applied to mind, bondage reverses

Five locked chains keep us enslaved

Diligently release - be free - be saved


O Lord, while my sentiments seem noble, in practice they will not give me total freedom. Thou art full, free and perfect. Bestow on us all faith, fearlessness and freedom.
