Nazariya

Nazariya rakhta hun,
kuch haalaato ne khaara kar diya is jheel ko,
isliye dariya rakhta hun.

Par tajoorbe ko kisi nazariye mein shaamil nahi karta,
khayaal ko tay karne deta hun apna safar ,
kuch kati patango se maayus hokar,
yeh hausla uski udaan ka kaatil nahi banta

Yaadien

Is pal mein beete pal ko ghar deta hai,
patjhad mein guzri bahaarein bhar deta hai,

naye ghar mein puraani deewar dhundhta hai,
toote pool pe puraane safar boonta hai,

kal ko pareshaan kiye bina,
insaan aaj mein koi kaam nahi karta,
chaar deewari mein din bhar karle laakh jatan,
par yaadon ke jharokho ke bagair koi shaam nahi karta

Zindagi ka falsafa

Waqt kuch aise guzra,
mein wahi ruka raha,
aur
raaste ne apni chaal chal di…

Safar kuch aise guzra,
mein auro ke nishaan pe chalta raha,
aur
ek gehri khaayi ne meri subeh ki umeed masal di,

Rishto ka karvaan kuch aise guzra,
mein unke jasbaat sambhaalne mein uljha raha,
aur
woh apno ki kataarein mujhe hisaab bataakar aage badh li

Who am i?

who am i…?

a bunch of bones stitched by flesh
or
an orderly life managed by mess

a high pitch nasal throw of an anxious throat
or
a hopeful rover carried by a lost boat

a happiness failed by gratitude
or
a failure bailed by attitude

a body stuck in routines
or
a soul immersed in past

a villain cursed in someone’s story
or
a good screenplay gone awry

a person stamped with expiry date
or
an immature who arrived late…
