For how long …. by Rupali Banerjee
How long shall we abstain ourselves
From doing what the heart desires
When we want to flow where the winds lead
We hold us back fearing denial !!
If acceptance is all we seek
Acceptance of society
Acceptance at work
Acceptance in peer
Or acceptance of world !!
Where does it lead us to ?
And does it feed our soul?
If all life what we do
Is try to fit into our role !!
For how long shall we stay
Behind the same old smiling face?
Hiding our selves, our sorrow
Searching relief in some bright tomorrow!!
When shall we open our fingers
That tightly held back our dreams?
And let our imaginations flow
Like a gushing silver stream
