Open up your mind and your potential reaches infinity…


This Hindi poem touched me all over- my soul, heart and mind.

Roop se keh do dekhe doosra ghar
Main ghareebon ki zindagani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hai.

Bachpan mein mushkilon ki gode me palti rahi main
Dhuaein ki chadar lapete, har ghadi jalti rahi main
Jyoti ki dulhan bithaye zindagi ki palki mein
Saans ki pagdandiyon pe raat-din chalti rahi main
Woh khareedein swapn jinki aankh pe sona charha ho
Main abhavon ki kahani hoon, mujhey furst nahin hai.

Manti hoon main, ke main bhi aadmi ka man liye hoon
Deh ki deewar per tasweer sa yauwan liye hoon
Bhook ki jwala bujhaoon ya rachaoon ras leela
Aadmi hoon, devtaaon se kathin jeevan liye hoon
Titliyon, poora chaman hai, pyaar ka wyapaar kar lo
Main samarpan ki deewani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hai.

Jee rahi hoon kyo ki main nirmaan ki pehli karee hoon
Aadmi ki pragati ban kar, har musibat mein laree hoon
Main samay ke prashth per shram ki kahani likh rahi hoon
Neend ki madira na chirko, main pareeksha ki ghari hoon
Ho jinhein awkaash, khelen roop rangon ke khilone
Main paseeney ki rawaani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hai.

Zindagi aakhir kahan tak sabr ki moorat garhegi
Ghutan jitni hi adhik ho, aanch utni hi barhegi
Aandhiyon ko bhi bulana dard waale jaante hain
Roorhiyon ki raakh kab tak, aanch ke ser pe charhegi
Shauq hai jinko jiyein parchhaiyyon ki ote ley kar
Main ujaale ki nishani hoon, mujhey fursat nahin hain.
