मन क्यों ना तू खुश होता रे?

जब थीं दिल में उमंगें जागी,
जब सपने नए मिले थे सारे,
कितनी मन्नतें तब माँगी,
कितने देखे टूटते तारे।

अब जब झोली में हैं आए,
क्यों है तू यों थका-थका रे।
रस्ते का क्यों दर्द सताए,
सामने मंज़िल बाँह पसारे।

मन क्यों ना तू खुश होता रे?

खुशी न जाने क्यों नहीं आती!

मंज़िल क्यों वैसी नहीं लगती,
जैसी थी सपनों में भाती,
जो भी पीछे छोड़ आया हूँ,
अलग ये उससे नहीं ज़रा सी।

प्रश्न है खुद से जिसको ढूँढ़ा
क्या वो कोई मरीचिका थी?
और उसे सब कुछ दे डाला
बची है बस ये राख चिता की।

खुशी न जाने क्यों नहीं आती!

  1. When our dreams become the reality, they loose the sheen. When we dream we visualize only roses, but in reality roses have thorns too and you have to walk upto the roses and hold them.

    Few years back I had written a very similiar poem about the reality of my dreams, will share that with you if I can locate it online.


  2. Hi,

    I am writing this comment with a sincere wish and high hopes to have a dialogue.

    Have you written a poem where you talk about opposites, khushi aur gham, sukh aur dukh … likewise ?


    PS: I am full of questions always.
