Thought

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 wave freely and exclusive

Beckoned liberty remains elusive

Declarations of freedom but lies

Bound are we 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 struggles not to untie the fetter


Man’s quest for liberty not in vain

Driven from thirst and hurt of pain

Freedom’s way in hallowed verses

Applied to mind, bondage reverses


Five locked chains keep us enslaved

Diligently release - be free - be saved


Prayer

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