Let Me Live

SOMETHING I LOOK AT 21
BY- SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Let me live my life
the way you live your own
with passion, dignity
and a smile on lips

Neither you created me
nor i thrive on your charity
like you i am a creation of his
have every right to live my life
as I wish

Do not destroy me
you have destroyed enough
let me live and smile
and let others too live and smile

That is why
i and you are here
to stand by each other
live, love and wither

You broke the law
and destroyed the beautiful garden
that nourished you all along
only a few are left
let them live and flourish
or else you are but
inviting your own finish

    A reminder to protect the fast degrading ‘paradise gained’ which is going to be lost in the hands of callous people …if we do not make an effort to stand together, live and love….
