I am...

I am the carefreeness of the wild flower,
The madness of a gypsy defines me,
Like the fragrance of kasturi I can haunt you
Yet unexplainable I remain

I am the intelligence of the sages,
The patience of a mother characterises me,
Like lightening I can strike you,
Yet a mystery I am

They tried to confine me,
Behind shackles of chains,
Tried to silence me,
Amidst explosions of bombs.

Yet, infinite and everlasting
I remain.
In each birth I reincarnate
Life is what I am.

Beautifully written priyanka.....i loved the first verse the best ....it explains my thoughts and me as a person and i always beleived that once your try to cage a person ....you are killing his creativity...So never be caged....and may you soar higher to attain unlimited success.
