It’s our Independence Day today

Everyone is celebrating it with happiness

For me it’s just a day like any other day

Messages of patriotism exchanged on what’s app

And flags purchased at traffic signals

The moment the day is over back to the same crap

Again we go back to our lives dismal

Independence has lost its meaning

We forgotten we have stopped believing

Independence from corruption and bribery

Freedom from thoughts which let’s us believe that crime against women is bravery

Freedom from evil which breeds racism

Be it colour or talks of religion

Freedom from evil which creates divide

Fight that war which rages inside

We need to understand Independence and it’s true meaning

To make our world a better place we need to keep trying
