Song Of The Open Road
by Walt Whitman

AFOOT and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune--I myself am good fortune;
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Strong and content, I travel the open road.

The earth--that is sufficient;
I do not want the constellations any nearer;

Tired
by Augusta Davies Webster

No not to-night, dear child; I cannot go;
I'm busy, tired; they knew I should not come;
you do not need me there. Dear, be content,
and take your pleasure; you shall tell me of it.
There, go to don your miracles of gauze,
and come and show yourself a great pink cloud.

So, she has gone with half a discontent;
but it will die before her curls are shaped,
and she'll go forth intent on being pleased,

Mukti
by airatmaninravi AiR

Mukti is Freedom, we must be free
We must not be bound to the ground like a tree
We must not be slaves to the Mind and Ego, ME
The goal of life is Mukti, to be free

Most of us are slaves, we follow the herd
We don’t open our wings and fly like a bird
Although we human beings are blessed with wings
We crawl on the earth, tied with many strings

Dead Humanity (Palestine)
by Md. Naeem Aziz

When i saw Palestinian mothers
Cried for their dead babies,
Killed by air strikes
My heart burned by the fire of pain.
But i see no pain,
In the eyes of Arab world.
Like their life has no value
In the world of dead humanity.

To save their own land

Daughter of the Sea –
by Quinn Smorenburg

Awaken, you who is kept
buried under mountains of water.
Cast down from empty sky; set alight and
burnt. You chose to drench yourself and
run away from flames chained to you.
But now you sit, singled and desperate,
hoping for nothing at the bottom of
this ocean.

I see green holes in you;

The Indomitable Human Spirit
by Thomas Gallagher

We have enslaved lightning
And thunder’s roar, defeat it admits

We have survived death’s pain
And create life with wits

For some, life is a prison
Yet they reach for freedom through the slits

Us on this beautiful rock

Pretty Little Wishes
by Zee K

Have you ever noticed her cracked lips
Bruises on her arms
Stress lines and eye bags
Or those tear-filled eyes at night

With those hollow eyes and cheeks
That forced smile remained still
She was born a fighter
But she learned to 'survive'

Bound by Flesh and Blood
by Lili De Assis

I build my own cage,
in an attempt to thrive,
but what if my passion, my soul, is just outside?
Inside there is nothing,
nothing but a carcass, rotting away over time
with familiar blood and familiar eyes
Generations of me holding my hand,
holding me down
begging for their fate to become my own
For a second it gets to me,
