I was born with an alive brain.
But my efforts to enlighten it,
with wisdom, went all in vain.
Now its lying in comatoseness,
since many years, like a rusted iron,
taking the last few left heavy breaths,
like “death rattles”, before the final end.
It has also seen years of imprisonment,
suppressed under chauvinism,
chained in social norms and mental bullying
of customs and orthodox norms,
depriving it from thinking and opine.
Fewer times, out of the blue,
it was asked to speak up,
like mimicking parrots,
aligning thoughts with the powers,
where cerebrating mind was never required.
Just a silent consent was all needed,
on every rude tough stare,
lips were fearfully sealed,
it thus became a non-functioning pulp,
locked behind concealed bars,
tortured to die , suffering from
suffocating darkness, and lots of scars.
