The Rebel

Standing tall amidst,
The ruins of fate,
Shattered dreams surround him,
Fragmented desires to collate!

Staring at the dark sky,
He remembers his early days,
A thinker, a dreamer,
Unique in every sense!

The bruised, battered horizon,
Evokes memories of his fray,
The struggles endured to realize his dreams,
Splattered on the path, they lay!

He recalls standing up against,
All odds and hurdles,
Choosing to break, rather than bend,
Inspiring changes among the people!

Jolted back to reality,
He introspects his stance,
Betrayed by destiny,
Futile seem his plans!

Believing thoroughly in himself,
Rising from the ashes like a Phoenix,
Refusing to concede defeat he remains,
A Rebel, A Maverick!
