हम तो बचपन में भी अकेले थे - Poem by Javed Akhtar

हम तो बचपन में भी अकेले थे
सिर्फ़ दिल की गली में खेले थे

एक तरफ़ मोर्चे थे पलकों के
एक तरफ़ आँसूओं के रेले थे

थीं सजी हसरतें दूकानों पर
ज़िन्दगी के अजीब मेले थे

आज ज़ेहन-ओ-दिल भूखों मरते हैं
उन दिनों फ़ाके भी हमने झेले थे

ख़ुदकुशी क्या ग़मों का हल बनती
मौत के अपने भी सौ झमेले थे

    When I read Zere Lab from Safia Akhtar, I was introduced to a boy who was called Jadoo by her mother. Although his mother saw very early a poet in him but I never knew - -
    Yeh jadoo sar par charh kar bole ga. (Report) Reply
