BOUND FREEDOM by Mofifunoluwa Aje (@rossymorph)



Freedom without progress
Liberty without achievement
Free on the surface, bound in the mind
Radiant faces, shallow thinking
Surrounded with wealth yet poor
Talents lie fallow, still, searching for whom to do what
Spinning in tangibility yet looking for irrelevances
Diamond folded at hand, but passionately searching for decayed wood
Opportunities fly around but seriously blind to it
Free, yet can’t stand
Freedom, no productivity
Freedom yet still bound

    Dr Aje, that is very true. I’m waiting for that beautiful day that Nigeria will be totally free, not only by mouthn but in actions and achievement.

    Very concise and direct poem. The subject matter is clear and strong. And each line is got a similar rhyme. Thank you.
