From someone somewhere…

What does ‘freedom’ mean?

Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,

Restricted by the sky?

Does the fish want to dance on the wind,

Not enough river to explore?

Yet the sky is freedom for the bird but death for the fish,

The sea is wide for the fish but will engulf the bird.

We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?

We can only express our nature as it was created.

The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,

freedom from slavery to other than the One,

Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in

and a horizon that extends to the next life,

Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

  2. Oh man! That hits the head of the nail!
    It’s not just about freedom, in fact. You can extrapolate this over any cultural or social variable quite accurately. Civilization, morals, acceptability… it is all variable for different people, in different parts of the world!

    Farooq, Absar is just trying to put his point across. And it’s a good one at that.

    there’s no disagreeing with you there, its funny how a few words can sum up the flaws of the human condition. And its sad how mankind is held down by his own short sightedness…
