Zubaan khamosh rakhiye

11 Nov

zakhm gahra hai, waqt bhi kutch theek nahi
kat na jaae sar so zubaan khamosh rakhiye

kha-ma-kha ki bahas, kaisi tarafdaari bhala
muskuraiye zara aur zubaan khamosh rakhiye

baat kahni bhi jo ho apni to kahenge kisse?
is liye suniye sirf aur zubaan khamosh rakhiye

baat karni unhe aati nahi aankho se shafi
aakhir kah hi diya aaj “zubaan khamosh rakhiye”

kya zindaghi bhi yun hi kat jaaegi?

11 Nov

har roz din kat jaata hai
kya zindaghi bhi yun hi kat jaaegi?

aakhir,

roti to naseeb mein likkhi hai
woh jo milni hai, mil hi jaaegi

aur,

woh khwaab jo taakh par rakkhe hain
kareene se chupaa kar sabse
dhool jamne lagi hai ab un par.
khwahishein yun hi dafan ho jaaengi?

asal mein,
kuch gahri baat kahne ko uthaai thi qalam
rahne hi do
baatein to bas baat hi rah jaaengi

hmmm…
phir bhi zara ek baar socho
kya zindaghi yun hi kat jaaegi?

farewell

kitni be-tuk si baat hai dekho
tumse kahne ko kuch bacha hi nahi

kyun hatheli ko dekhte ho yun
ungliyo ko to paseejna hi tha
kyun masalte ho in lakeero ko
ab mitaane ko kuch bacha hi nahi

sau baras ka ya dhai din ka tha
woh jo lamha tha woh ajab sa tha
ja rahe ho to zindaghi bhi khatam
ab bitaane ko kutch bacha hi nahi

kitni betuk si baat hai dekho
tumse kahne ko kuch bacha hi nahi
