A Free Bird

A few days before I realised that my life is nothing but a holiday.
A holiday where I can do anything I want.
A holiday where I can be anywhere in any place.
A holiday where I can be me.
A holiday where I can be free.
Yes, free like a bird! Doing what my heart wants to and what I want from this life.

Being a free bird doesn’t mean that you have a lot of free time, no work or no worries in life. It signifies that you are doing what you love and what you want in life. In general, living a life on your terms.

I have been living this life as a free bird since my childhood days. I still remember how crazy and foolish I was as a child. I was the only child in the school that never went to any tuitions or classes. From 5th grade till now (my TY BSc I.T., last year of college); all that I’ve learned is in school lectures and all on my own. The reason for this is I didn’t like going to tuitions. Tuition teaches the same studies as taught in school. Above all, why do something with the help of others, when you can do it by yourself! Well, this was me! A self-taught, self-made! A free child! Yes, free like a bird!

As a child, I have done every little thing a child should do to make his childhood life count and make it memorable. I mean not like a typical child with a daily routine. Starting from school, then back home, lunch, tuition, home again, dinner and sleep. In my case I was different. Different as in, I was free. Yes, free like a bird!

From flying kites to running behind it.
From playing football, cricket, chess, snake & ladder to playing with marbles, top, etc.
From studying to dancing, singing out loud, etc.
From eating mom’s food to climbing the tree and plucking raw mangoes with friends!
Well, this was me as a child!

And, from living life with freedom to living life at fullest. That's who I am as a person! But now, the world I see through my eyes and the world I live in, the people in it, the so-called human beings! Oh, wait! Are they even humans now? Damn!

What has happened to the world? Where is this world running? Behind the race or trying to get along with this so-called race or trying to move forward! Mind you this race will never end, even though the people in the race end. We are all born, and we are going to die, that’s it! Don’t you want to go happy? Feeling, you did something that you loved, lived life as a free bird instead of being trapped in a cage. Don’t you think that we are making a fool of ourselves living the life in a box or cage?

To be more tactful, why this goddamn world is so much on their phones and so much busy with their lives these days. I am thankful to God that in my childhood, instead of playing football on PlayStation, Xbox, computer or smartphone; I played it with my friends kicking the ball on a ground having real fun and memory to cherish. The world is so much engrossed in their smartphones and so much busy with their own life that they don’t even have the time to look around themselves and see what beautiful happening & passing by at every moment.

They are living the blinded life with the eyes open and an unfree life with the mind and heart open, but being trapped in a cage. A cage that might get free someday, or it may not! All the life we wait for this cage to get open. But does it get’s open? No! And when it gets, the time has already won the battle. So, why to wait for the cage to get open? The changes about what we want in life start from no one but us and only us. So don’t think about anything, open the cage and then see how beautiful and free your life will be. Like a free bird!

A free bird is the best tag that defines who I am as a whole. Because like a free bird, I have the wings in me since my birth that knows what to do, what not to do in life and how to live the life freely on my terms. If you want to have some real fun; make it count in life. Meet me!

Every human being has wings in them like birds. But it’s left up to them whether to make use of it and fly or cut it off and get trapped in a cage.

So, it's about being free!
It’s only one life we have!
Do what you love and live your life, like a free bird!

P.S. - Happy Independence Day!
Find your freedom, live your free life!
