With a Sovereign Mind---a Poem
I salute to mind's insolent volition
singing hymns to wakeful, untamable soul
unchaining my intent is my highest mission,
using my own mind is my highest goal.
Devoted to harmony and social order
I vote for anything majority may seek
citizen of Earth not caring for border
bowing to no one's political clique.
In love with Nature and all human race
seeing likely home on every distant star,
a free-willed gypsy belonging to no place
up for any journey no matter how far.
People can think whatever they may choose,
uninvited to arrange my intimate spheres
my freedom of mind I can never lose
it has been my treasure for so many years.
Not willing to pay for stupidities of others,
not ready to support irresponsible kinds
even if I see them as sisters and brothers,
it is their call to use their own minds.
Craziness of people doesn't make me care
I never started any of their games,
I don't see it honest, in any way fair,
so I turn deaf ear to all their claims.
Blaming someone else is a cheap excuse
for mental laziness and a lack of trying
so why don't we all decide to use
our best intent instead of crying.
Sovereign in mind we grow and we thrive
nothing else can give us more power to win
nothing else can make us feel more alive
to become more than we have ever been.
