Pooja

पूजा

सिर्फ मेरी थी

.

मेरी ही हो सकती थी

.

पैर भी सिर्फ मेरे ही

चल सकते थे लगातार

बीसियों बेड़ियों के बावजूद

रास्ते की तलाश में

रास्ता बनाते हुए

.

सफ़र था

हुनर था

शहर था

और थी पूजा

.

सफ़र में, हुनर में, शहर में

पूजा मेरी थी…

–==–


Pooja

sirf meri thi

.

Meri hi ho sakti hai

.

Pair bhi sirf mere hi

Chal sakte the lagataar

Beesiyon bediyon ke bawajood

Raaste ki talaash mein

Raasta banate huye

.

Safar tha

Hunar tha

Shehar tha

Aur thi Pooja

.

Safar mein, hunar mein, shehar mein

Pooja meri thi…

    Interesting…Enchanting and Emotive…It starts as if poet is talking about his girl friend but suddenly poem turns towards worship of hard work, this is what i like about this poem. Very interesting Take.
