Dr.Sandhya Tiwari


Man is born free but in shackles everywhere

Some are physical

Some are psychological

To free oneself from physical

Sometimes is just like a child’s play

But the fetters

From which worse is better

Are difficult to tackle

Because many a times human mind is so fickle

Call it pretence

Or reasons absence

In the name of civility

False show of inner nudity

Where the words like the conscience,

Ethics, conduct, moral and values

Are found in books

Not in hands

But dusted in racks

One rule for others and another for our self

The mind made manacles result in debacles

    Hi Sandhya, I really enjoyed reading your poem, and you are right of course that mankind is shackled in so many ways, it is down to each and every one of us to throw off those shackles and live as we perceive NOT as we are perceived!. A nicely flowing piece of free verse, it is both intriguing and emotive in its content. Excellent work , keep it up! BF
