FREEDOM IN CHAINS
By Neel Anil Panicker

Trapped in false glory
Oh! what a pitiable story
Life turns topsy turvy

Unquenchable are her desires
Caught in mindless quagmires
Up and up she goes
Endless turn her woes
Walled in pseudo wealth
A life but full of stealth

The view from top
Is a precursor to the big flop

Upwards in life’s superficial rise
Little does one realise
When it comes to the wall
Great shall be the fall

Let’s all the reality, face
And cut down to the chase

For beautiful life
Sans all strife

Isn’t about looking up in arrogance
But looking down with grace.
