Free Your ‘Self’


Jump.

Yell.

Be mad like hell.

Shout (on the streets).

Abandon (everything).

Dance like there is no tomorrow.

Paint your face.

Make a mess of yourself

Be chaotic.

Flirt with death.

Shed the cloak of consciousness and morality.

Indulge in sins.

Break the guitar.

Write, write and write.

Sing, sing and sing.

Don’t act your age.

Be the quintessential adolescent,

you never was.

Do things fearlessly.

Tread path that chained you.

The road less traveled,

clamp your steps.

Dare and bare.

Open up your naked soul to the world.

Be brave once.

Fight your way.

Be yourself.

Walk to that stranger and hand a flower,

don’t turn around.

Break the chains of emotional attachment and bondage.

Free yourself.

With Love

V

PS: Words inspired by Ramona Arena and one of my favorite song, Sadda Haq, above.

    • Was disappointed by the film since I am a huge Imtiaz fan. Love the rebel theme and the songs are amazing. The Sufi sound is divine and do check Ramona’s poems. Inspired by her as well and in fact, the prime reason for this poem. Thanks Somali.

    • It’s one of my favorite Archie. Love the line, sab ko tareeke se jeena tha!! loads. Of course, Ramona is always an inspiration and such an amazing poet. The one with hidden talent:)

  1. I think the songs were the only good thing in this movie..

    And the poem is excellent. .

    And the song that inspired was and is a great song.. but sadly majority only listen to it as song and don’t ubderstand what the lyricist was actually trying to say . Very strong words in the song ..

    • True, the lyrics conveys deep meanings and says a lot about how life is changing..O! Nature ke raskshak mein bhi hoon nature!!
      Love the songs loads but the film disappointed me. Remember was so excited to watch Ranbir as the rebel par movie ka script loose tha. The idea was good but couldn’t develop to tap the emotions.
