Beyond the fence. A poem by Bindiya Bedi Charan Noronha

Longing to be the sun
Aching to ride free
Waiting to feel wind in my hair
Freedom beckons me

I stare at the covid fence
Standing between
Wild expanse and me

My mum told me no
No to leaving safe spaces
No to adventures beyond

One day I will leave to
Fly in unknown skies
I will find my own sunshine.

The world will heal
Everyone will be fine
Fear will not whine
Freedom will be the real deal.
