… मैं तो चलता गया |…


सब कुछ सवारते हुए |
खुद को सँभालते हुए |
मैं तो चलता गया |
पर मैं न रहा |

राहों में मुश्किलों को झेलते |
आँखों से आंसूं पीते |
होठों पे मुस्कराहट बनाये हुए |
मैं तो चलता गया |
पर मैं न रहा |
walk

कभी सुख को देख के |
कभी दुःख को झेल के |
अपने आप को भूल के |
मैं तो चलता गया |
पर मैं न रहा |

आवाज़ों के बाज़ारों में |
शोर के भवसागर में |
मेरी ख़ामोशी शांत हो गयी |
बोलूं तो बोलू क्या |
मेरी आवाज़ भी मुझसे नाराज़ हो गयी |
दुनिया की परछाई में |
खुद की परछाई भूल गया |
परन्तु …
मैं तो चलता गया |
पर मैं न रहा |

एक राह पकड़ी ऐसी |
जिस पर इंसान ने कदम ही न रखे थे |
उस अंजानी और अजनबी राह में |
मंज़िल तलाश लिया |
औरो की क्या बात करे |
खुद को ही अपना शागिर्द बना लिया |
अकेले ही रहकर |
अकेलेपन को मार डाला |
पर …
मैं तो चलता गया |
पर मैं “मैं” न रहा |

अँधेरा आया और गया |
पर सवेरा नहीं हुआ |
आने और जाने का चक्र चलता रहेगा |
मैं था , मैं हूँ |
राह कठिन है बहुत |
अंगारों पर चलना होगा |
मुश्किलों को मारने के लिए |
खुद से जीतना होगा |
सवेरा लाने के लिए |
खुद को सूरज की तरह जलना होगा |
डगर मुश्किल है नामुमकिन नहीं |
इसलिए …
मैं तो चलूँगा |
और चलता रहूँगा |

    Very profound lines, Ashish. Great job indeed. It reminds me of Kabir lines: “Prabhu jo khojan mai gaya, prabhu na milya koi. Jab prabhu milya, mai nahi.” 🙂

    Wow. Aapke Hindi poems mast hai.
    Shayad khud ko khud me nai, apno me talaashna padta hai, kyun ki humare kuch tukde unke paas reh jaate hai, jinke bina hum adhure hote hai..
