Heavenly Ride!

Sliding down the curvy road,

She makes a sudden right and then swirls around the way.

Her strangled hair moves the way out to reach her eyes,

But the speed cannot control the enthusiasm within.

This is the first time her mother has allowed to ride the bicycle out of her sight.

She horns at every turn.Waves Rajesh Bhaiya,who visits their place for ironed clothes.The way he hops on to his cycle, and fleet through the way, inspires her.

Heartwarming Rajesh Bhaiya waves her back.

She crosses plenty of automobile,felt sorry at the sight.Down casted with all things they were missing out on.

The breath of fresh air while riding,

Quenching on the foot pedals,

The way she can feel her freedom,

And the joy of not jammed inside the cuboid.

She heavy heartedly made way through the traffic, and reach home safe.

Her mother waiting for her prompts up asking about her trip. She vigorously tells her all about her joys and other people loss. Her mother jokes if she would ever get a ride on her bike. With a big “Yes”, she attains her Eureka moment!

Amid of all these fanatical talks, her father honks and tell them to hurry up otherwise they will miss the train to their homeland. They plunk the luggage in the car. Her mommy turns around to confirm asks her, “Sab rakh liya na?kuch reh toh nahi gaya ?” (Kept everything? Is anything left?)

With sobbing eyes, she replied, “Yes mommy, Everything but FREEDOM!”
