Poems by Dr. Paramita Mukherjee Mullick

FREEDOM (18/01/12)  

Freedom is in your mind
Scream for it, search for it
                  You will never find.
Freedom is being aware.
Freedom is showing others
                  that you care.

Freedom is respecting each other.
Freedom is developing oneself,
                  further and further.
Freedom is not taking others
                  decency to be a weakness.
It is beautifying your inner being.
                  Not only your face.

Freedom is limitless
                  It cannot be defined.
It is something which
                  helps you to be more refined.
Freedom does not give you permission to exploit.
Nor give you license to hurt others
                  with feelings devoid.

Cherish freedom when you get it.
Nurture your free life and advance it.
You only have one beautiful life to enjoy freedom.
You only have one beautiful mind
                  To spread happiness in God’s Kingdom



(Written after a visit to Dachau concentration camp, Munich, 11/05/12)

Why is Man the biggest enemy of himself?
Doesn’t Man know, he is the image of himself?

Why this laceration of human dignity?
Why this death from thousands to infinity?

Why this cruelty to the other?
He too is someone’s son, someone’s father.

Oh! Man, why have you gone through the vicious cycle of harm?
When you caused sorrow, didn’t your heart sound an alarm?

Savageness worse than death.
Hurting man till the end of his breath.

Why this heartlessness?
Why this torture, why this mental violence?

Oh! God. Let all wars, all cruelty cease.
Oh! Children of today,
       wake up and be a messiah of peace.
