Free me, Slave

a poem by Kaavyashri Rao

Free me, Slave
From the clanks of the chains
Which to you in greed I gave

Free me, Serf
From the brunt of the pitiless plough
My depriving denial of your own turf

Free me, Servant
From the relentless reliance
On you, my heartless haughtiness, hell bent

Free me, Soldier
From my rave to be brave till the grave
Nightmarish, if you live to be older

Forgive my fixation for your Crucification
Free me from desolation, towards relief and realization
