Where the Mind is Gripped with Fear

 Where the mind is gripped with fear 

And  the head is bowed low 

Where knowledge is stifled 

Where the world has been broken and fragmented

By dividing walls

Where words come  from lies and deceit

Where power hungry tyrants stretch their arms toward absolute control

Where blindness overcomes reason drowning us in cesspools of hate leaving us in distrust.

Where the mind is led forward by  selfish ambition 

Into a narrow vision of thought and callous action.

And from that hellish prison  

Save her my Father, 

Let my country awake.

Navaz D’cruz

(A modern-day adaptation of Where the Mind is without Fear by Rabindranath Tagore)
