We live in times riddled with feelings of hatred by certain individuals towards others
Not me

We try to be someone
Or something apparently
But we are not just anyone
No, not me, surely

Running or walking towards some goals
We try to find meaning anyway
But in the life that sometimes scolds
We burn and then turn away

These scolds by life itself, sometimes,
Which are not kind at any time,
We pretend to learn from, so many times
But we do cry, run away or try to hide

No, these scolds shall not hurt me!
As I try to live a life that is free
Free from prejudice towards anyone
Free to be just what I want to be

I will try to be like an eagle
Free to live and also fly
I will try to find solace in the sky
Just like a beautiful butterfly

Hatred, shall not rob me
Of living life, the way it should be
It will not impair me, to be free
No, surely, not me!
