मैं रोया तो नहीं …


मौसम के अलग अलग मिज़ाज़ मे.
ज़िंदगी के हर उतार चढ़ाव मे.
औरों के घाव को मरहम लगते हुए.
और खुद के घाव पे नमक छिड़कते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
दिल ऐसा टूटा की टुकड़े भी ना मिले.

राहों मे अंधेरों का सामना करते हुए.
औरों के दुखों को मिटाते हुए.
खुद को खेलने का प्रयोगशाला बनाते हुए.
सब धोखों को झेलते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
बनावटी इस दुनिया मे हम अकेले पर गये.

शोर के इस वातावरण मे.
ज़िंदगी ने ज़हर ऐसा उगला.
मौत भी मुँह मोर कर चली गयी.
पर उस वक़्त मैं ना पिघला.
आँखों की लालिमा करती है कुछ इशारे.
दफ़ना दो उन ख्वाबों को जो नहीं हैं हमारे.
आवाज़ों के बाज़ारों मे खामोशी पहचानता कोई नहीं.
जो होना था वो हो गया बस अब और नहीं.
रह गया उस मंज़र और इस मंज़र मैं, अकेला.
चलो बनता हू इक दुनिया जो होगा रंगीला.
पर उस वक़्त…
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
हम दिल पर पत्थर रख , किसी और दिशा चल दिए.

Trying to paint the paper…


Living in the piece of a paper.
I am trying to paint the paper.
Left in the curse of time.
I am trying to build a new time.
Shattered with the sudden storm.
I was left in a beach of thorn.
The pain was unbearable and immense.
Like someone put an iron rod in the chest.
Tears came and heart wrenched.
Wondered how I got the bloody drench.

Shame acts and broken trust continued.
I stood and fought till I can continue.
During the midst of day and night.
Life gave me tremendous fight.
Sacrificed everything which I had.
Only thing left was the time which was bad.
I lost the battle with a brutal end.
Tried a lot to avoid that end.

Loved the fact that I still survived.
Even though I had no reason to survive.
I left the world which was never mine.
Building a new world which will be mine.
Life is such of twisted events.
Tackling them is prominent.
It takes time to forget and forgive.
Hence life must be lived.
Some time is required to move on.
As…
Living in the piece of a paper.
I am trying to paint the paper.

Better to do something…


 

Life is full of unexpected events.
Sometimes bad sometimes good.
Making cry or smile at those events.
It’s good to have experience.
Sometimes startling and sometimes enjoying.
During the midst of day and night.
We often come across several memories.
Some haunted and some taunted.
Memories remains forever.
Events can’t be forgotten.
But can  only be forgiven.

Some moments are everlasting.
Making us to cherish.
Some are really unfortunate.
It is our duty to make it fortunate.
This is what life’s all about.
Here we are born and will be dead one day.
Better to do something…
That will be remembered for everyday.
Time is less and life is short.
Better to do something…
That will reside in everyone’s heart.

All is not well…


Left in the uncertain condition.
There was no hope of desirable situation.
Thrashed by a sudden thunderstorm.
I have no strength to fight the storm.
Body collapsed and mind became rest.
I was left behind with the bloody fest.
Soul cried and heart broke.
Everything vanished at a sudden stroke.
I cried but tears didn’t fell.
Made me realize, all is not well.

Mind stopped to think and perform.
Started moving in the path of thorn.
Collecting the pieces of my hopes and desire.
Buried all those in a burning fire.
Life may not go the way I want.
I need to start from the scratch to grow a new plant.
Bleeding from inside and outside.
There was no reason to live any life.
I cried but tears didn’t fell.
Made me realize, all is not well.
I smiled and smiled.
Leaving behind the darkened nights.
Left searching for any hope.
Now its time to create a new hope.
Building from the base one more time.
Let the life play with my time.
I won’t give up.
Remembering those moments gives me sensational feeling.
As that time…
I cried but tears didn’t fell.
Made me realize, all is not well.
All is not well.
