Let me go (revised)

If all are born fair and free-
Why this darkness everywhere?
This silent noise, this mad spree,
I feel inside is hard to bear;
I strain my eyes but all I see
are blank walls of despair;

Why I fell in this whirlpool?
Who colored my world so grey?
Am I just fate's tool?
I search for answers all day;
Am I wrong or just a fool?
Give my Life, that's all I pray;

What I did to creep in bondage?
Let me know, then give the blow;
Why am I to sleep in a cage?
I want flowers, let me go;
Let not sweat, let not blood,
But dew drops cold, wet my brow;

Why in murk I spend my Years?
I am in fetters, I know not why?
No more darkness, no more Tears;
I want to hear the cuckoo's cry;
No more empty dreams in fears;
I want the sun, I want the sky;

Fishes swim and butterflies fly
And stars twinkle in the high;
So let me go to feast my eye,
‘Fore I wave my last good bye
O! Let me go and feast my eye
I will live my life and die..............
