WHO AM I -JUST ANOTHER WOMAN and ANOTHER SURVIVOR

Before I make this post, I would like to write a small note. My following poem is Dedicated to all those beautiful women who are survivors in there own way. Women go through a lot. To survive they not only need to be strong physically but also mentally as well as emotionally. This poem is dedicated to all those women who went through a lot yet chose to move ahead and survived . And that’s what makes them proud to be a woman.Though, I don’t think my poem is good enough but still you all can take it as just a small gesture towards women.

note : in this poem “I” doesn’t refer to me myself , but to a woman who went through all this .

Following is my poem:-

I was in mother’s womb ,

When I was planned to be killed.

Yet, I survived .

Who am I?

Just another woman.

When I was an infant

I was cursed , poisoned .

Yet , I survived

Who am I ?

Just another woman .

When I was a toddler,

I was humiliated, I was emotionally targeted.

Yet, I survived

Who am I ?

Just another woman.

When I was a kid,

I became a toy .

Yet, I survived

Who am I ?

Just another woman.

When I was a teen,

I was eve teased, vulgar comments were passed on me.

Yet, I survived .

Who am I ?

Just another woman.

When I was an adult .

My dreams were tangled with the relations.

Yet, I survived .

Who am I ?

Just another woman.

When I was twenty-two,

I was married to an unknown man.

His dreams became my dreams.

His wants became my wants.

Yet,I survived .

Who am I?

Just another woman.

When I was twenty-four years old
I gave birth to my first child.

Almost gave up in the labor room .

Yet, I survived

Who am I?

Just another woman.

When I was forty-four,

My kids completed their education.

I forgot  my dreams while fulfilling their dreams.

But , I was given no credit.

Yet, I survived .

Who am I?

Just another woman.

When I was fifty-four,

My kids left me in an old age home.

They couldn’t take my burden.

Yet, I survived.

Who am I?

Just another woman.

In every deed of my life,

I fell,

I rose,

I screamed,

I yelled ,

I sacrificed.

Gave  just another exam ,every next day.

Yet, I survived .

Who am I ???

Just another woman.

kyun pareshan hum hogaye

kyun pareshan, hum hogaye..khwab ghumnaam kyun hogaye.

justuju zindagi bangai,

rehnuma ab kahan khogaye.
kyun hain Tu hairan 

 hai ye duniya falsafa,

kyun khudse tu anjaan hai aatish to ban zara.

kyun sehma hai pareshan hai kyun ghum ka silsila,

seene mein ek tufan bhar 

Har zarra keh raha..
kyun pareshan hum hogaye..

khwab ghumnaam kyun hogaye.
kyun sansein apni qaid hain,

kyun bandish hai yahan.

kyun dariya ye bechain hai 

 tu ye bata.

kyun lipti hain ye beriyan,

kyun bebas hum yahan.

kyun bikhri hain har khwahishein,

kyun ranjish darmiyan.
kyun pareshan hum hogaye..khwab ghumnaam kyun hogaye.

AB TOH BAS KEHNE KO HUM INSAAN SE HAIN

Tum pareshaan ho aur hum bhi pareshaan se hain..
Ab to bas kehne ko hi hum insaan se hain.
Zindaghi ke kitaab ke panne…
Syaahi ke rung mein rung ke hairaan se hain.

Hum nigaahein mila to lete hain
Aur nafrat chupa bhi lete hain
Jab zaroorat kisi ko aajaye
Unse daaman bacha bhi lete hain.

Ab to hasrat hai sitaro ki humein..
Chaand pe jabse Insaan ne kadam rakkha hai.
Kya hai burai achchai ke aagey
Maano kohraam hua rakkha hai

Ghair hain sab bas ye jism o jaan apne hain..
Aur ek dil hai jiske hazaar sapne hain.
Tum pareshan se ho aur hum bhi parehsan se hain
Ab toh bas Kehne ko hum Insaan se hain.

Note: This poem is inspired by the human nature these days and that so called humanity  which is lost  in this mechanical world.

AISA NA SOCHA THA

Aisa na socha tha
na socha tha kabhi,
Ghalib ka shahar itna haseen hoga.
zubaan pe gaaliyaan chaahe,
magar dil to shahad hoga.

hazaaron rung chehre pe,
yahan har roz khilte hain.
ho ranjish dil mein par,
ek doosre se roz milte hain.

Chal uthti hain sabki aankhein,
bhale hi ghum kisi ke hon.
bahaarein roz rehti hain,
Bhale hi mausam koi bhi ho.

jahaan mein shayad koi bhi shahar ,
aisa nahi hoga.
na Socha tha kabhi,
Ghalib ka shahar itna haseen hoga.
