Is being free from 'only' colonisers
Is your solitary reason behind
For flying flamboyant kites,
In boundless, amaranthine skies
Then maybe, you misunderstood
The meaning of independence
The meaning of freedom
I would like to question you today,
Are we really free?
From the prejudices and discrimination
From the fear of being judged
From the fear of being divergent
From all shady voices around us
That don't let touch us the stars
From the negativity that's breathing around us
From the people who fill our souls with ashes
Awe really free from scathing society?
