Wakt Ka Pahiya Chalte-Chalte - Poem by Sumali Nagarajan

Aaj ko tham lo
Har khushi baant lo
Kal kisne dekha hai
Wakt ka kya bharosa hai.

Zindagi ka safar hai kathin
Tedhi medhi si hai rahain
Wakt ka pahiya chalte-chalte
Jane kis manzar par le aaye.

Khubsoorat pal ka intezaar na karo
Issi pal ko khubsoorat bano lo
Kissi ko phoolon ka guldasta de do
Kissi ki muskurahat ki wajah bano.

Phir ek din bhudhapa aayega
Chalna bhi mushkil ho jayega
Aaj aankhon mein roshni hai
Kal shayad dhundla cha jayega.

Khushkismat hain jo haste-haste
Chale jate hain
Varna bhudhape ke din bahut satate hain
Bachche seva to bahut karte hain
Magar dukhon ko
Baant nahin paate hain.

Kabhi kabhi main poochti hoon khuda se
Tumne aisa jeevan kyun banaya
Janm lekar aisi kon si khata ki
Jo akhir mein bhudhapa aaya.

    बहुत सुंदर. इस कविता में बहुत सी विचारणीय बातें रखी गयी है. ज़िंदगी की सच्चाइयाँ कड़वी होने के बावजूद भी सामने रहेंगी. लेकिन ज़रूरत इस बात की है कि हम अपना दृष्टिकोण सकारात्मक रखें. ईश्वर से कुछ पूछने व पाने में भी इसी का ख़याल रखें.
    Khubsoorat pal ka intezaar na karo
    Issi pal ko khubsoorat bana lo
