Freedom does not flow from the barrel of a gun

Freedom does not flow from barrel of a gun

From the barrel of a gun
flows only bullet, to kill ,
to acquire political power
to make captive
of all natural beauty
where human faith is demolished.

To nurture the faith
freedom is required
which does not flow
from barrel of a gun.

Freedom is the state
which is attained
with love compassion and peace only
gives a wing
to fly in open sky
without harming
natural beauty
to co-generate a new creativity
for peace and prosperity
preserve all beauty
in our life.

Freedom is the state
to attain full consciousness
to make us fearless
where no apathy exists.

Freedom activates our voices
makes us stronger
in heart and mind
when we can raise our voice
against any dictatorism
or else a slave bow down before.

Lover of freedom never likes
bloodshed or any discrimination.

The person crushes pleasure
of others only for self benefit
certainly not a free one
rather a slave of self personality.

Freedom inspires
for a new creation
to attain the humanity

Freedom awakens
inner sight and inner light
to assail us
from present to future
where life does exist
with all its beauty.

Freedom is the protector
of all beauty of life
where life blossoms
with peace and prosperity

Freedom never asks
to hold gun, because
freedom never flows
from barrel of a gun.

    Unequivocally impassioned.

    Editorial Note : In general despite its length, the poem was well presented.
    However several minor grammatical edits had to be made.I also feel that
    the piece could have been more impactful for the reader had it been a couple
    of verses shorter in length. Please take greater care.
