Savaal Hai (Poem)

दर वीरान है और दस्तक का सूना हाल है,
शहर मे मकान तो है, पर घर का सवाल है|

खुले उजाले मे बस्ते अंधेरे का ख़याल है,
हँसना आता तो है, पर हँसी खिलने का सवाल है|

रात को नींद नही पर दिन से लड़ने की मज़ाल है,
सीने मे दिल तो है, पर धड़कन का सवाल है|

रास्ते है कहीं, और अकेले चलने का काल है,
लोग पहचानते तो है, पर अपनो का सवाल है|

ज़िंदगी का यह एक ऐसा मायाजाल है,
तन्हाई तो है, पर जीने का सवाल है|

How It Is Like..

They asked me,

What is it like
To be so afraid of betrayal,
That you push everyone away?

What is it like,
To be so afraid of not fitting in,
That you instigate your desolation?

What is it like,
To be so afraid of rejection,
That you stop trying?

What is it like,
To be so afraid of heartbreak,
That you begin fearing love?

And I told them;

How it is like,
To know true loyalty,
That you don’t let many in.

How it is like,
To be so fond of the right belonging,
That you aren’t truly lonely.

How it is like,
To know true acceptance,
That you just be you. 

How it is like,
To have felt a love,
Which cannot be replaced or repeated.

What Am I?

What is my past,
If not an
Immensely heavy anchor?

What is my present,
If not the
Struggle to stay afloat?

What is my future,
If not the
Quest to Ogygia?

What is pain,
If not the
Tipsiness of ignorance?

What is hurt,
If not the
Lines I write?

What are tears,
If not the
Leftovers of you?

What is the night,
If not the
Winds of solitude?

What is the day,
If not the
Escape from the night?

What is liberation,
If not the
Songs I sing?

What is love,
If not the
Tapering of cracks?

What is happiness,
If not the
Resemblance in art?

What is life,
If not the
Gradual healing?

What am I,
If not
All I am?
