A Free Bird

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 at any place.
A holiday where I can be me.
And, a holiday where I can be free!
Yes, free like a bird! Just doing what my heart want 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 but it simply means that you are doing what you love & what you want in life and living your life on your own 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 school who never went to any kind of 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 what is 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! I repeat again - Yes, free like a bird!

As a child, I have done every little thing a child should probably do to make his childhood life count and make it memorable. I mean not like a normal child with a regular routine. Starting from school, then back home, lunch, then to tuition, home again, dinner, sleep, etc. In my case I was different. Different as in, I was free. I say it again - 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 mamma’s food to climbing the tree and plucking raw mangoes with friends from a compound nearby my house!
Well, this was me as a child!

And, from living the life at fullest to living life freely. This is 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 this world? Where is this world running towards? Behind the race or trying to get along with this so-called race or trying to move forward! Mind you, this is the type of race that will never ever end even though the people in the race ends. We are all born and we are going to die, that’s it. Don’t you want to die 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 the fool of our own selves living the life being trapped in a cage?

To be more tactful, why this goddamn world is so much into their phones and so much busy with their life 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 smart phones and so much busy with their own life that they don’t even have the time to look around themselves and see what’s beautiful happening & passing by at every moment.

They are living the blinded life with the eyes open and an unfree life with the mind & heart open but it being trapped in a cage. A cage that might open someday or may not! All our life we wait for this cage to get open. But does it really 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 and just open the cage and then see how beautiful & free your life will be. Just like a free bird!

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

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

So, be free!
It’s only one life we have!
Just do what you love and live your life, like a free bird!

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