One Step At A Time..

I grew up learning that

No matter how hard you fall flat

You got to stand still

Continue with stronger will

As every moment passes by

Adds new lessons sometimes wild

So I never gave up on hope

I smiled in order to cope

 

I wished to just flow

And spread smiles with some hope

No wonder how you broke

hid the pieces with the cloak

To hold the world around

‘Coz that’s when you confound

There’s a child inside

Who doesn’t want to die

Unknown to the knowns

like the locker of the Davy Jones

 

One day life will be pride

Listening to this inner voice

And the dreams it once shared

Fictional, but back then i didn’t care

The dream of living love

Diving high as two doves

Holding hands with flying wings

Resting and fighting beings

Creating new lives

Binging to play kites

 

Growing old with pitfalls

Yet rising above towards the stars

Building home, our little spot

Within the woods at hill-top

Grazing the little calves

And playing with our dogs

Teaching a bunch of kids

Of the near village called mids

Watching the dusk and dawn

Dancing and singing loud

 

But darling what I have been

Grown up dreaming

Has caused me a big fall

And i don’t see how to let go this long haul

The wounds are deep and scars

Are open to dust and flaws

So I try to spread smiles

With a little hope to hung by

To the people close to me

I came back smarter they believe

 

To stay alert I don’t calm

At the face of truth I am alarmed

The dream has turned its back

And has been the trojan attack

I don’t see the sunrise

Just left with emotions deep inside

I try to quiet them

Kill or silent them

And be less than a human

To protect self from demon

Mind open but heart closed

Words playing but feelings shorn

 

But,

I grew up learning that

No matter how hard you fall flat

You got to stand still

Continue with stronger will

As every moment passes by

Adds new lessons sometimes wild

But I don’t know if it’s the time

To give up hope and let feelings die

So I smile for another mile..

Take one step at a time and one step at a time yet another at a time..

 

 

 

 

 

RAAHEIN..

Raahein..inki bhi alag hi daastan hai..

kahan se janmi, kahan ko hai jaatin

ye khud mein bekhabar par..raahi, raahii ko uske mukaam tak le hi jaatin…

Raahein kuch kehti nhi bus sunti hai

Raahi ki raah takte takte aahein bharti hai

Zindagi toh yun hi ek badhti, badalti, sambhlti, muskurati khamoshi si raah hai..

Na jaane kiske kadamo ne inse kuch kha hai

Aur na jaane kitno ne inhe samjha hai

Par ye muskuraati khamoshi si raah anginat lamhon ko yaadon mein samet..ek nayi dastaan banati hai..

Maano jaise jannat ka darakht prakashit hua ho khin se…

Maano jaise jannat ka darakht prakashit hua ho khin se…

 

Be a little more..

Distance has never been this quiet before,

now I withdraw from my thoughts more.

I heard my thoughts soothing, calming and doting,

Yet screaming, deafening and defeating.

 

Distance has never been this empty before,

now I withdraw from my feelings more.

I still feel the cold, warmth, soft and loft,

Yet fierce, violent and uncontrolled.

 

So distance, distance has never been this clear before,

now I withdraw from my learned behaviours more.

I don’t search, doubt or engrave my identity,

I live free, more and unobstinate to the maturity.

 

Distance has never been this vulnerable yet comforting before…

Now I withdraw from my fears, insecurity, and ordeals just to be a little more, just to be a little more.

 

 

 

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.

 

READ! If you feel vulnerable..

Do not run, deal with the fears you have. Be with the self no one has met. Let the vulnerability be at peak. Loose your self in to the wilderness of reality. Allow the pain residing in you flow. But, do keep a watch to not stop in between. Shake your head if its full of doubts, let those doubts fall off and disappear.

And to seek the source of the solutions to your problems, stand up and walk closer to a mirror nearby.

Yes, that is where you are going to find your answers. That is the one person you can trust on and the one to shower you with love and care.

Remember that Self is often a camouflage. But when you remove the mask of disguise, self turns up being the remedy you were seeking for in the world outside.

Accept your self. Love your self. Be your self. 

KITAAB

Ek dukaan, dukaan kitaab ki.

Kitaabein kayi, kuch kahaaniyon ki.

Kahaaniyan ankhahee, kisi ke khwaab ki.

Ek khwaab, yaad kisi ki.

Kisi ki chaahat, ladaai kisi ki.

Aazaadi kisi ki, maut kisi ki.

Shanti kisi ki, sachayi kisi ki.

Ek dukaan, dukaan kitaab ki.

Kshetr ek, Lekhak kayi.

Syaahee ek, pal the kayi.

Lafz unke, aawaaz thi meri.

Anubhav unka, pariksha thi meri.

Chaai saath mein, kuch biscuit bhi.

Raatein kayi, par saath nhi.

Vichaar kayi, dhaarna kayi.

Ek kitaab, kitaab uss dukaan ki…

 

 

 

 

NAZARIYA..

Kabhi kadamo se udti hui dhuul ko dekha hai, 

aisa lagta hai jaise bhoomi apni hi dhun mein magn ho jhoom uthi ho..

waise hi jaise hawaa ke chalte hi pedo ki pattiyan naachte hue nayi soch darsha rhi ho..

jaise baadal garajte hue aakaash apni vaani se prakriti ko raag suna rha ho..

jaise pahad ke peeche se surya ne jhankte hue hariyali ghaas pr baethi gaay ko narmi se chhu liya ho..

jaise nal ki uss aakhri boond se gilheri chauk kar ped pr chadh idhar udhar dekh rhi ho..

jaise khoye hue bacche ko dodte dodte apna ghar door se dikh gya ho..

jaise jalte hue paanv pr behti hui sangam meethe palon ka ehsaas dila rhi ho..

aise hi ye zindagi hai, 

jo dheere dheere na jane kitni kahaaniyon ko simetti hui ek nayi kahaani likh rhi ho..
