Freedom: Flying without wings

Freedom is the most prized possession of all beings on this earth. The freedom to mix up and groove with others or to be wretchedly alone. The freedom to make choices for own self and what not.

Because at the end of the day, you will be the amalgamation of the choices you made in your life. If you give up your freedom to make choices for yourself then you might end up being a successful and popular figure but that won’t be true you. That person won’t be what you wanted to be. By giving up your freedom to make choices for yourself, you are actually giving up the opportunity to make your own destiny. Of course, it may lead you do things you shouldn't have done and which you would never do again. It may leave scars on your body and on your soul but those scares from the past would be like medals won in a war waged in the name of faith and dreams. On this path to ultimate freedom to do what you want to do; you would realize that you could do absolutely anything except force another person to follow you in your madness, in your lust for life. Yes!! Freedom has a high price, as high as that of slavery. The only difference is that you pay with pleasure and a smile, even when that smile is dimmed by tears.

You may have often questioned that absolute freedom doesn't exist but what does exist is the freedom to choose anything you like and then commit yourself to that decision. Freedom is not the absence of commitments. But the ability to choose and commit yourself to what is best for you. Anyway you don’t know what future hold in for you then why not do what you want to do in your life. You don’t know what rest of your life would be like. That why it’s better to live cherishing a dream than face the possibility that it might all come to nothing.

" So impossible as they may seem
You've got to fight for every dream
Because who's to know which one you let go
Would have made you complete"
