Creative Liberty in Life

Creative Liberty in Life - Poem by Rajendra Ojha (Nayan)

Similar to the liberty we have in any arts,
Shouldn’t we have it in everything we do?
We say, the freedom of individuals is the greatest.
But, do we really have the creative liberty in life-
that helps to assure that freedom in work?

Regardless of what work we attempt to bring to life in creative liberty,
Our activities are governed by numerous constraints.
So, we can’t break free from work taboos; and-
Provide creative freedom to improve the work we do.

As creativity is an essential part of every work,
The chain of creative liberty shouldn’t be broken.
Yes! Everything here is an artifact of the big bang we had.
And nature, we know—
runes like the game of ‘RuneScape’.
But in reality: the scope of the job restricts this liberty!

For what I understand this liberty is,
Creativity should be set free like a wild animal.
Only then will we see the creative liberty in life.
