Well the Indian independence day is upon us

Imagine we’re all assembled in the ground together to salute the flag and celebrate the Independence day, I come forward as mandated to salute the flag, but before I submit myself to the authoritarian will…these are my last words

Let us all salute the flag in uniformity,
after all we gained autonomy you see.

Let us savour the taste of that sweet freedom to practise democracy,
tyranny of the many,
business as usual you’ll see.

Let us take a crash course in eudaimonia,
wreaked and crashed under delusion you’ll see.

Let us all take a leap of faith,
forget we’re all still slaves,
be it this flag or the other you’ll see.

Let us all salute the flag in perfect uniformity,
as we sink deeper, depression and desperation is all there is you see.


At the end of the day.

Crushed will be the mind the more you think

If you don’t do so it will eventually sink

Sink you will anyways maybe ignorance or revelation

All you will need is nudge in either direction

Ignorance would lead you to a path that would make for a hollow life

Revelation would lead you to a path that would be riddled with internal strife

Either way you are done for, as your mind will bleed

You will plant one of those seed

You are already dead though, what’s the point if you do read?

Beauty, Justice, Happiness…what makes you pay heed?

Even if you do end up getting it do you really think you will be able to proceed?

Or will you just become hollow, like a zombie moving ahead as decreed?

Life in solitude or social prominence all ending in one way or the other

In the end all will be smothered by nature mother.
