Wahi zindagi…

Umr aur waqt se aage badhe,
par khayaal umeedon aur yaadon ke beech wahi the.

Auhde aur zimmedaari se aage badhe,
par faasla ghar aur naukri ke beech wahi tha.

Nakaamiyo aur hatasha se aage badhe,
par “yun hota toh kya hota” is haseen sapne aur haqeqat ke beech palkon ke jhapak wahi thi.

Kuch kadmo ke saath chalne aur kuch haatho ke chhotne se aage badhe,
par nayaab mehfilo aur bhoola denewale vaakyo ke beech log wahi the.

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
