Social Space

Social Space

A Poem by Nirmala

It expresses the right to be different and the courage to make that choice


Social Space


The world watches incredulously

Those who dare to break tradition

Unencumbered by the bonds of blood

Designing social rules to fit new moulds

Intimidating the existing status quo

Preventing people to be firmly labelled

Bonded by race, class, nation or culture

Allowing self definition to rule the day

Blossoming an era of dignity and grace

Wrapped in blissful social independence

Author's Note

The need to neither judge or blindly follow, the need to be courageous in ones decision and be content is expressed in this short verse
