The black swan

We all know the story.... A girl, pure and sweet, trapped in the body of a swan. She desires freedom, but only true love can break the spell. Her wish is nearly granted in the form of a prince. But before he can declare his love, her lustful twin, the Black Swan, tricks and seduces him. 

Devastated the White Swan leaps off a cliff, killing herself and in death finds freedom......

                                                                                                                         - Black Swan 

At times, I get carried away by my deep thoughts far somewhere... somewhere which is a beautiful place, where there is noone, just me, my wings and my freedom, noone to stop me from doing anything, noone to stop me from following my dreams, noone to hold me back from running behind what I love, noone to tell me what is right and what is not, a place where there are no defined rules, a place of beautiful dreams, where all you do is what you love doing, where there are no boundaries, where there are no fears! You are free... In my land, you are free to fly as high as your wings can take you, noone would be there to stop you, to slash your wings, to put you in a cage! Noone!
 
And there in that mysteriously alluring world, I flap my wings, look at the beautiful sky that calls me with open arms, I flutter my wings again, I push myself up, I flap my wings harder, I push myself again and there I go... High in the sky... sky that is smiling at me, towards the clouds that are murmuring a beautiful song... I fly... Full of ecstasy... Full of life... Noone is there to stop me... Noone! I laugh, I dance, I sing, I fly...I fly... high... higher... highest... in the sky of ecstasy... my perfect enigmatic world!

And then, something jerks me off, pulls me down to earth and drags me to reality, from my perfect world to this not-so-perfect one! Was I conjuring again?

Have you ever wondered if given a chance to ask and own one thing in this world, what would that be for you? Some would say money, some would take their lover's name, some would choose to be the best, someone would go for some materialistic thing. You know, what would be my answer: Freedom... Inevitably! Undoubtedly! I am even ready to beg and implore for it! That much love I have for this one word called freedom... I think thats the most valuable thing a person can possess. Freedom to live your life as you want! Freedom from the worldly boundations. Freedom to own your life. Freedom to call it yours. Freedom to do what you like doing. Freedom to be free. Freedom to fly.

Freedom to be you, without anyone's permission

Even after-life looks beautiful if one gets their freedom there.

We all know the story.... A girl, pure and sweet, trapped in this world. She desires freedom, but only fulfilling her desires, living her life her own way can break the spell. Her wish is nearly granted in the form of a dream. But before it can declare it's love, the cruel world, the Black Swan, tricks and seduces it, snatches it away.

Devastated the White Swan leaps off a cliff, killing herself and in death finds freedom......
