“An Honest Poet”




If a poet’s words become invaluable,
Then surely he will die, and
No one will remember his name.
No one will come to put flowers on his grave
Or be able to look him in the eye.
Behind my vision I see swords and armor,
But my hands and voice are loosely twined,
My feet’s potential swiftness
Is a painful order I’ve defied.
I want my skin to be clear as glass, so
Even if my shell should break
My remains will be dangerous and
My spirit alive;
You will see through me and
Know if I’ve lied.
Sometimes still I want to collapse, and
Even more to believe I am done.
I’m not a very good poet,
But at least I am an honest one... :))

So being an honest poet...here goes my latest Nazam..
hope u guys will enjoy this optimistic piece of my work ;)

Abhi umeed baqi hai
agarchah hai galat phir bhi
kahein kuch aas baqi hai
zara sa ankh mai pani
tou phir kuch pyas baki hia
dilon ki bedili mai ab bhi
'dharkan' raaz baki hai
nahi hai arzoo koi
nahi hai hasratain ab woh
magar phir bhi kahani mai
kahein kuch aas baki hai
zara si pyaas baki hai
k shayad phir kabhi ankhon ko
khuvabon ki talab ho jae
k shayad phir kabhi zakhom ko
marham ki talab ho jaye
k shayad phir kabhi soyi howi
hasrat ki ankhain bol uthain
baaat kar uthayein..
k shayad phir kabhi dil bedharak say
pyar kar uthay..!
