Life and death

“If there is heaven on earth then why to search somewhere”
It is here, it is here and it is here but only to dare
If we can make it really worth living
Nothing will come in the way for believing

Who does not like freedom?
It shall be denied seldom
God sent us as free and independent
We should make lively and live in present

Freedom is dear to animals even
They resist yoke if put all of sudden
We are human being and understand its value
Let us abhor violence and give people their equal due

It has philosophical touch
Pride and honor is involved as such
If it has sentimental attachment
No one should term it as rebellion movement

It is against for forceful occupation
The term applied stands in relation
Not outside force must prevail
As it is futile and bound to fail

Motherland is considered as sacred
We firmly believe and definitely are led
Why it is then resisted at home front?
When our own representatives make us to bear the brunt

Life has been made difficult to live peacefully
No where you can go and establish successfully
We are not talking of particular region or ideology
We, the people, are made scapegoats and not at all happy

It is good to feel at home inFree State
It is equally important to have liberty to state
But how do you feel when someone else seals your fate?
Real steps are not taken even today least to say very late

I may salute to that possibility
If can be converted into reality
Why blood must quench the thirst of earth?
When we all are uncertain about life and death
