Fire and Dreams…inspired by #GullyBoy

I have been pushed, shoved, beaten to the ground
I have no name, and yet have been called many a name
Each time i fall, i vow to rise higher, stand taller
There is a fire inside me, that burns, that consumes

I live in a dark cave, which lets in no light
I see only gloom and despair in the lives around
Each day only strengthens my resolve to break-free, to fly away
There is a fire inside me, that burns, that consumes

My reality is bleak, is that of one with no hope
My fate could not be worse, can only be of servitude
My dreams are going to change my reality, not be limited by my reality
The fire inside me gives me flight, gives me light

My future is going to be one that only I can see
My pain, my words, my junoon shall alight many fires
My dreams shall change your reality, shall make you break free
My fire shall set you ablaze, shall free you, shall burn you, shall liberate you

The fire that burns shall set us free, shall give us flight
Our dreams shall change our reality

About Neeraj Garg

I have spent more than 20 years in the corporate world, in a mad rat race, like many others. Sometimes, very so rarely, I try and find some time for myself to pen down my thoughts.......not deep or intense, but often asking myself questions about issues that are top of mind.

    Neeraj Sir, I am always impressed with your thought process and what I learnt from you, on the job, was being observant….reference SGPGI. Thanks for your contribution.

    Hi Neeraj
    Very well written.
    Just 1 feedback – I feel it would have been even better if the last para would have been a return to the main theme (or 1st para).
    I ain’t no expert , I ain’t no critic but I am the public who gets critiqued 🙂
    Keep it coming !
    Cheers
