Yes, you.

“even if all the birds in the sky
were to offer me their wings
so that i could fly away
from you
i would say no
i’d rather be tied to you
with chains
the bond we share
transcends
even the concept of time
distance and space
it defies the meaning
of color
of culture
of institutions
and governments
so that even if all
the birds in the sky
were to offer me
their wings
so that i could have freedom
i would say no
for to love you
is to have wings’.

(Note: “You” could be anyone. It could even be those who continue to put up with this country’s leadership no matter what crap it does).

    But eventually I realised a bit… It is so strong! It’s like your mission statement🙂

    Yes, let’s go for it!

    Yes…I, too, believe in having and sharing burdens; not just running away. Did you write this piece? It is good.🙂
