Mannat Sa..

Tu ghabraye kyu, jab kal tune na dekha.

Tu ladkhdaye kyu, jab raasta yahi  hai tera.

Tu khud mein khud ko roke kyu, agar hai tujhe jeena.

Tu utsukta ko baandhe kyu, agar gyaan hai tujhe peena.

Tu mann ki ankhein khole, jab ho sab dhuaa dhuaa.

Tu dil ke raaste khole, jab ho tu dara dara.

Tu chup hai kyu, agar sunn rha apni cheekh ko.

Tu bhram nhi, aaj maan le apne astitva ko.

Kyu mitt rha tera vishwas hai, jab kho ke paana hi teri muraad hai.

Kyu soche ki tu aaj hai khali sa, tu jaanta nhi ye tere jazbaat hai.

Tu samet le ya jee le, yhin tera chayan hai.

Tu maang le ya de le, yhin tera karm hai.

Ho ja tu malang sa, agar ibaadat ho karni.

Ho ja tu shunya sa, jo apni pehchaan ho karni.

Tu ho ja mandir, masjid aur dua.

Tu ho masoom aur jee le mirza.

Taare se janma prakash hai tu, tu ho ja aaj dhyaan zara.

Marhum sa narm hai tu, kisi ke dard par aaj thehar ja..

Tu ho ja prem sa, parbat ko chhu aur srishti sa ban ja.

Tu armaan ban aur kisi ki mannat sa udta chla ja, udta chla ja..

 

 

With a grain of salt..

With the whites and blacks, let the greys origin.

With the hollows and flat, let the plates merge in.

With the whisper and noise, let the silence say.

With the snow and fog, let the clouds rain.

With the depths and highs, let the plains await.

With the impulse and values, let the wise dominate.

With the myths and evidence, let the imagination abide.

With the intention and action, let the integrity play.

With the truth and false, let the perception embrace.

With the love and hate, let the peace create.

With a grain of salt, let the lives stay.

 

The Expression of Openness and Void. (#Not a poetry)

How it feels to breath with openness

In mind, in heart, in soul..

Where the wonders and miracles meet me

And disasters and vulnerabilities are immense in cues

What shall I tell in words or how shall I express without them..

As an artist with the love of expression

Or as a writer by putting forward the best possible appropriate combinations of letters..

With openness comes choices, comes chances

With openness comes freedom,

But freedom always has its opportunity cost.

So does this cost be the breath I intake, or the breath I exhale..

What lies or what I hold after paying the cost by my breath

Is it the freedom again or emptiness as void inside, as void inside….?

Is it just the expression of openness and void or a question to self on my life or for my life ..??

 

 

 

 

THE CHOICE

Life has it’s own way of dealing you. It hits you hard on your face when you try to escape it. The more you will try, the harder it will hit. Many people have options to choose for themselves and many don’t. Many don’t ever recognize what opportunities time has brought for them. And many forget to exult for what they have with them.

This unwanting episode in their lives when gains importance, they fall short to hold it’s worth. As once it was their own but with time it goes through several editions and now its completely unrecognizable.

But the beauty is, those with love may still have their chances to touch its worth and embrace themselves. All one has to do is make a choice. Prioritize.

So, are you prepared for this? Fear of change, discomforting thoughts and uneasy start. These will leave you perplexed. But that’s fine, it’s how life is. If you don’t want life to hit you hard, then you have to hit life harder. Yep, that’s the rule my friend. All these fears will fade away gradually so fear is just an illusion.

The important point to ponder upon before making a choice is, “Are you ready to pay the opportunity cost for your choice?”. Think wisely. Think more than twice.
