I Wait….



I wait for the day,
When I can eat off the roads ..
I wait for the day,
When I can drink water anywhere..
I wait for the day,
When I can go alone .. Everywhere, at anytime,
I wait for the day,
When “made in India” will mean “there’s nothing better”..
I wait for the day,
When I will fear the law and follow rules…
I wait for the day,
When I can leave the door unlocked ..
I wait for the day,
When help will reach me in a few minutes everywhere..
I wait for the day,
When our soldiers have the best weapons to defend us
I wait for the day,
When a girl child has equal opportunity..
I wait for the day,
When my bank balance can’t buy justice or blackout news..
I wait for the day,
When am proud of my traditions..
I wait for the day,
When the only thing black is my skin color,
I wait for the day,
When everything runs on time,
I wait for the day,
When there is true freedom of speech,
I wait for the day,
When my caste is “human” …
I wait for the day,
When justice is never delayed …
I wait for the day,
When I don’t have to wait ..
And that is today,
Why wait …. Just get on with changing what must be,
Hope springs everywhere,
Even May has rains,
And the Earth smells happy,
Why wait … When a tea seller can be a leader,
If he can, so can you,
Freedom is a choice,
Misery too … But cry alone,
Extend your hand,
Expand your heart,
Uptilt your face,
As the sky cries, the grime is wiped off your face,
Right now, you are fresh and ready,
To rebuild our nation and,
Keep our tryst with destiny,
A second chance,
To be free,
To lead, to be the best we can be !
