Liberation

This is a song written in Tamil and translated to English! This time the translation is for my verse..

Liberation

It’s neither few nor many,
Who broke the wings.
The tears that are spilling ain’t falling
Either in the prison or pillow!

The corpse hidden to thoughts
Had hidden away
The peace and sleep too

In that moment of
Lost mind and
Lost peace

The coolness of the moon
The brightness of the sun
The gentleness if the breeze
The ferocity of storm
Fused into a ball

The ball reached
Deep inside to
Reveal the truth!

That the prison is in thoughts!!
Though the wings are fine,
The thoughts are not fine,
Thus, restricting the wings,
That might soar the skies!!

Is there any worse sword
To break one into pieces?

When will this prison break?
When will this wings soar?

siraipattadu sindanaiyilena!
siRagugal seeraaga irunthum
seerazhintha sindanai mattume
siragadaithu vaanalakkum
sindanaiyaiyum varuthiyathena!

விடுதலை

சிறகுடைத்தது சிலரல்ல பலருமல்ல
சிந்தும் விழிநீர் வழிந்தோடி விழுவது
சிறையுமல்ல சயன அறையுமல்ல

சிந்தனைக்குள் மறைத்த சவம்
சயனத்தையும் சமாதானத்தையும்
சடுதியில் துணைக்கழைக்க

சித்தமிழந்து
சிறகுமிழந்து
திகைத்த நொடியில்

திங்களின் தன்மையும்
கதிரவனின் ஒளியும்
தென்றலின் மென்மையும்
கடுங்காற்றின் வேகமும்
ஒற்றைப் பந்தில்
ஒன்றானது

அது உருண்டோடி
உளம் புகுந்து
உரைத்ததோர் உண்மை!

சிறைபட்டது சிந்தனையிலென!!
சிறகுகள் சீராக இருந்தும்
சீரழிந்த சிந்தனை மட்டுமே
சிறகடைத்து வானளக்கும்
சிந்தனையையும் வருத்தியதுமென!!

வாயடைக்க இதனினும் கொடிய
வாள் உளதோ

என்று ஓயும் இந்த சலனம்
என்று விரியும் இந்த சிறகு..

  1. Wow… So beautifully written Aadhi.. Very well translated.. Loved the term “prison is in thoughts”.. I can feel the emotions in this.. And Tamil.. Seems interesting.. I live in Andhra Pradesh, so I am familiar with Telugu.. Have a good time.. 🙂

      Welcome to my blog and glad you liked this.. 🙂 Tamil is very closer to Telugu too.. So you might understand parts of transliterations..
      Thank you for the beautiful comment! 😀

    1. Really happy to know that you are finding these old and gold posts and liking them too..

      True.. Isn’t thoughts the only barrier to live life our way, at most times?! And the realisation that the prison is self-built is rarely recognised.. But still breaking them isn’t that easy!

    2. so true…most of us don’t realize that these prisons are self-made. and those who do, resign to fate…and there are some, who are even more afraid to venture out and see what’s outside these prisons. for them, prison is home, safe!

    3. For it’s easy to be addicted to routine, even if it’s painful rather than step out of the comfort zone and face the unknown, which might even lead to liberation! Maybe most feel that the risk isn’t worth, since they never understand that the probability of success is higher with try than not trying at all..
