…………..aa gaya

Tere bin saanso ko behlana aa gaya,

ab rote-rote pal mein aansu chhupana aa gaya..

Kabhi hasa karte the jin par hum,

ab toh dheere dheere unse kadam milana bhi aa gaya..

Na kar paae ishq tum humse,

ab humein bhi aapna pyaar chhupana aa gaya..

Kar le tu sitam chahe jitna,

gaeron ke saath dekh tumhe, ab muskurana bhi aa gaya..

Chahe kar tu sada hi inkar,

tere ikrar karne ka tareeka bhi samajh aa gaya..

Kari na yeh umeed, ki milenge dobara,

teri tasveer ko dekhkar sona bhi humein aa gaya.. 

a victory story

Believe it or not, it happened today,

While I was lost, I found that pin in the hay..

It reminded me, of the pricks n the pain,

Which it gave me, and drove me insane..

I looked at it, with a smirk on my face,

Thinking of what should I do, and the punishment ways..

O boy! It talked back to me, taking me by a surprise,

Begging me for forgiveness, asking me its price..

Price! O no! There’s no value of my sufferings, I know I have to set u right,

So that you don’t trouble anyone, and especially stay out of my sight!

O benevolent! Have mercy on me, Thou has the power to free me,

I promise I promise, I’ll do as u say, but one condition that you set me free..

I sit under the tree, thinking what to do,

Finally the apple fell, and my mind instantly decided too..

I use my strength, against the Satan who took my sleep away,

Burnt me alive, and laughed at me all the way..

I turned my pin, into the memories of my pain,

To look at it every day as it becomes my key to be sane..

Now I keep my pen down and look at the ring on my hand,

Yes, a silver lining can make a petty pin look grand..
