Jahan Main Khadi Thi

jahan main khadi thi

vahan se qadam, do qadam hi ka rasta tha

jis ja pe mausam badalne ko tayyar baithe the

mere ye bas men nahin tha ki main

apni khidki ke aage pighalte hue

manzaron men koi

apni marzi ka hi rang bhar duun

khizan ki akadti hui zard banhon ko

apne jharoke ke aage ye bad-rang piile manazir

sajane se hi rok paun

darakhton ki mazbut shakhon se daman chhudate

hue zard patton ko rokun

bikharte hue phuul lachkili, sarsabz shakhon pe phir se khilaun

havaon ki pazhmurda sanson men phir zindagi daud jaae

parindon ki chahkar ubhre, nadi muskurae

jahan main khadi thi

vahan se qadam, do qadam hi ka rasta tha

raste men bikhre hue kitne pal the

adhure safar the

magar mere bas men nahin tha ki main

saare bikhre hue pal hi tartib de duun

masafat ke maare hue raste manzilon se mila duun

ulajhti huii, sar patakhti hui tund maujon ke aage kinare bichha duun

jahan main khadi thi

vahan se qadam, do qadam hi ka rasta tha

jis ja pe duniya thii, thahra hua vaqt tha

jis jagah zindagi thi

magar mere bas men nahin tha ki main

zindagi se ye kah duun

ki thahre hue vaqt se aage kuchh pal nikalne na paae

ye duniya ko ja ke batae

mujhe saans lene ko thodi jagah chahiye

vaqt ka ek ujala kinara mile

zindagi se kuchh aisa ishara mile

is zamane ka hi saath saara mile

main use ja ke kah duun

magar mere bas men nahin tha ki main

apni banhen uthaun

qadam ko badhaun

nigahon se us ko bulaun

use kah hi paun

ki hai ye qadam, do qadam hi ka rasta

jahan main khadi huun!
