Rise.


Stop telling me what I’m expected to do.
I’m fed up being a tamed rebel.

I was a free spirit once
Now bottled up in unvarying methods.

You’ve been pointing that finger
Bewitching wickedly.

I follow you
Dismally, regretfully…

But now,
In need of a life
The Rebel Must Rise.

I'm feeling lyk dis is a slogan sung during NATIONALISM IN INDIA...

the 2nd line...
"I was a free spirit once Now bottled up in unvarying methods."

n the last one..
"But now, In need of a life The Rebel Must Rise."

is lyk...india is screaming from the bottom of its heart to wake up all the "rebels" to get her free...from those "goras" ....


this is my way to interpret dis poem....
