Irreversible/ Achal

Zindagi se Koi shikayat nahi

Gar wo Yun na hoti

Toh hum yahan na hote

Yeh kagaz Kalam ki

siyaahi mein dooba na hota

Gar ghum na hota

Toh shayar na hote

Mohabbat na hoti toh

Ibaadat na hoti

Aasun na hote Toh

muskuraahat ki kadr na hoti

Gar Zindagi seedhi si chalti

Toh Aey Rab !

Tere darr par Yun sajde na karte

Zindagi se kaise shikayat Karein

Woh Yun na hoti

Toh hum …..hum na hote

Translation

I don’t condemn life

For If it was any different

I wouldn’t be here

This paper would have not been

Blotched with ink

Existence of pain

Birthed poets

Existence of love

Birthed devotion

Presence of tears

Made us value smiles

If life was a straight line

Who would have

Surrendered to Divine

I do not condemn life

For if it wasn’t the way it is

I wouldn’t have been

The way I am

  1. This perhaps is one of the deepest things you have written. Everything we are today is a sum of our experiences, good and bad. Every smeared ink, eraser mark, and brilliance come from the events in life that helped shape us.

    My dear friend, this was a brilliant piece. Profound, beautifully written, and inspiring.
    BRAVO
