If you love someone, set him / her free.
Sounds cliche and quite common, isn’t it? Who would be unaware of this (or similar worded) saying?
But what if that “someone” in the question is none other than you yourself?
Let me, however, offer a slightly different treatment to the given phrase, or the title, and show you the views through a slightly different lens. Perhaps, you will like the views. Perhaps, you won’t. But it’s worth a try, isn’t it? Who knows, maybe this lens turns out to be a bit clearer.
Let it go
If it doesn’t come back, it was never yours
Or, thus have you been told
Let it go
Let the past teach you, but don’t you hold it back
An artifact so heavy, doesn’t grace your bejeweled bag
As onward to your future, valiantly you march
Let it go
Give it some space
An unhindered path for it, thou shal’t pave
Before every evil wall, by the hammer of dreams, razed
A free space of clear thoughts for the swing, must first be made
Let your dreams soar
Do not try to be a bore
The society, as you say, may be “an object” of your blame
But prithee, tell, can it not be a mere facade, a farce, a soulless face?
Are you sure “you” are not a part of the same?
Let it go
Think not what will the people say
But ponder upon what will you, to your very own soul, say
For dreams unfulfilled by your own accord, the clinging despair
Right on the Judgement day
The waters may be uncharted
The terrains, uncertain
Dangers might be lurking at bay
Did the great Columbus or the mighty Vikings of the yore
Ever colonize their minds with such a lore?
The Earth is flat, your ships will eventually fall
Omnipresent were tales of that sort, reigning loud and tall
Did not Magellan dream
To find out how the world “beyond the horizon” feels?
In “mythical” lands, far far away, they say
In lands of ice and Castles of white, ’tis told that fairies stay
Don’t you want to ever dream, to verily behold
Such magical lands glitter and gleam, the sights nothing less than pure gold?
Stupendous it seems. But know the hazards before
For the path is filled with cold and icy trolls
No known one ever went there. Hardships you may face untold
Prithee, tell me, in the age of iron horses and paperless mail
Can you not atleast be informed of such “trolls” who may pose a threat?
Let your apprehensions go
And tightly should you your aspirations hold
Embark on a journey via twisting paths untold
Travel through the hedges, nay, meet the icy trolls
Take stock and prepare, go find knowledge in the digital scrolls
The “Mjolnir” of information shall raze the evil walls of doubts as you roll
From the bubble of the comfort zone, thou shal’t move beyond
And with the unexplored cultures and people, thou shalt seamlessly bond
See new sights, experience magical moments untold
As thou take’th the Iron Horse, over, sideways and under, ‘cross the Øresund to Helsingborg
The Dream Castles of Ice await you
As do the idyllic roads of Torino
You, however, have to let your doubts go
And to your fear or hesitation, you shall say an everlasting no
Let your doubts or fears go. Ensure they never return
Memories worth cherishing a lifetime, thou shal’t attempt to earn.
Sometimes, the society and peers are merely an excuse for us to stop trying for what we want to do. Sometimes, the demons lie within us, as do the will to eliminate the demons within.
Dream on, unleash the “Avengers” within, make efforts and travel more..!!
