Something More

Reading Time: 1 minute

Here’s a poem of protest and hope, by Neelam, in Different Truths.

A day’s long silence

when there is a cry

I feel the cage be free

freedom should be a primal right.

When you can rather speak than

soil your feet halfway through

let your voice be heard

without angst and hurt.

When the eyes can see

what one should believe in

stars against the backdrop of buildings,

treading through serpentine paths.

The joy of breeze, rain

won’t ever be over,

won’t ever be soot,

and something more.
