Umeed

Gum bahut hai,
duniyadaari ke,
marham nadaarad,
is bimaari ke,
phir bhi har subeh,
zakhmo ko lekar,
nikalte hai gharse,
kuch haasil karne ke kiye,
naa ho toh bhi,
ghar laut te waqt ek bujhti si
muskurahat .. Ko saath lekar aate hai,
hoga kuch naa kuch kal,
yeh mann mein dohraate hai
kya hum umeed ka dil tod de,
kya hum jeena chhod de.. isse toh achha hai,
dhalti shaam ko kyun naa chaandni raat ka mod de

Step by step

Step by step,
miles were covered,
distance was dwarfed.

Step by step,
emotions were negotiated,
gravity was momentarily negated.

Step by step,
ears were deafened,
inner voice was empowered.

Step by step,
adversities were pursued,
outcome was favourably turned.
