A still from the movie, 'Udaan' (2010)
My dreams are my own.
Do not attempt to burn my dreams away.
For if you do,
In the wake of your disdainful frustration,
I shall forge my destiny anew,
My roads my own.
I shall leave you behind me.
With dreams in my mind.
And love in my heart.
But none for you, for you gave none.
I shall fly away somewhere new.
And chase my aspirations.
And you, expected benefactor,
Shall be left alone forever.
PS. Inspired by the movie, 'Udaan', which I finished watching moments ago! Everyone who understands Hindi should watch this. And those who don't, get subtitles!
