ज़िन्दग़ी, तू बड़ा तड़पाती है मुझे (2)

मैं तुझे शब्दों में ढालने की कोशिश करती हूँ,
पर ख़ुद की असमर्थता पर तू क्षोभ से भर जाती है मुझे ।
और कभी अनकही बातॊं का अर्थ गुनगुना मेरे कानॊं में
बिना वज़ह आई मुस्कान से भर जाती है मुझे ।

ज़िन्दग़ी, तू बड़ा तड़पाती है मुझे ।

ठीक है तू चुप ही रह, मैं भी चुप ही बैठती हूँ;
चुप्पी में ही तू मानो सितारों से जड़ जाती है मुझे ।
पहली बार ही समझाया तूने महत्व शब्दों की असमर्थता का,
ओह! कैसे तू अक्सर एक नए अहसास से भर जाती है मुझे ।

ज़िन्दग़ी, तू बड़ा तड़पाती है मुझे ।

Next part of the poem.

    Jaya:This poem in two parts is quiet appreciable with a transparent expression of thoughts and feelings expressing the limitations of human.Previous comment was not with an intention to increase the pain due to human limitations.After all you have narrated one more poem “Anyway” in your previous blog.Please carry on writing and find less number of anonymous commentators in your blogs,at least not me.

    Thanks for appreciating, but just in case it got conveyed wrongly – “Anyway” is not my poem (I wish it were!). I got it in the book “Tough times never last..” where it was acknowledged to be taken from some edition of Readers’ Digest and a friend (Priya, was that you?) told me that it is originally from Mother Teresa. So, whatever the source be, it’s not me…

    Guess I will update that post.
