Feel the freedom at last,
Ramble freely in free world,
Free from body, 
Free from dreams;
Was always enslaved by duties, 
Until perched in body shell; 
Dreams and longings, 
Persuaded always, 
To be this, achieve that;
Religion and social bindings,
Always suppressed,
Clenched my movements;
Captivated mind towards the onus, 
Kids and kin were always in mind;
Never was free for my own life,
Always served as babe and mom, 
Until destitute old age;
Once lived for kids and kin,
They too distanced one by one;
Lived all alone in lonely life,
Until body, mind abandoned;
Away from agony and pain,
Flow like clouds;
No end, no shore,
Only freedom as nightingale, 
Frees from master's prison cage;
