ज़िन्दगी का आईना – Mirror of Life

images (3)

ज़िन्दगी के आईने में चेहरा देखा

पहचान न सका अपने आप को

नीरस आखें, झुर्रियों से भरा मुँख

अपने अक्स से डर गया मै

इस ज़िन्दगी के भाग दौड़ में,

काम का नशा इतना छा गया

कि मुस्कुराना भूल गया,

छोटी छोटी खुशियों से मुँह फेर लिया

सफलता की बुलंदी तो छू ली

रुकना नहीं आया मुझे

मकान था आलिशान

पर वो घर न बन पाया

परिवार अजनबी लगने लगा

खुद को पाया अकेला, तनहा इतना कि,

मेरा साया भी मेरा न रहा .


Looking at the mirror of  life

I could not recognize myself.

Hollow eyes, a wrinkled face

was aghast at my reflection.

In the rat race of life

work became my obsession.

Forgot the art of smiling

became oblivious to life’s tiny delights.

Kissed the pinnacle of success

but didn’t learn to pause.

Built a palatial house

but it missed out on being a home.

My family seemed strangers

found myself so lonely and desolate, that

even my shadow was not mine anymore!

One, a number by itself so lonely with no one for company. But being alone doesn’t alter it’s towering personality. In spite of being all by itself always, it’s ability and power to inspire and transform is simply admirable.

One breath begins life

one ray of light brings in sunshine

one look can melt your heart

one hug can make your day

one flower starts a garden

one step begins a march

one run can win a match

one handshake can foster friendship

one smile wipes out the gloom

one star guides the lost soul

one vote can tilt the balance

one touch says it all

one thought can trigger can idea

one leader can lead the nation

one laugh becomes contagious


one life can make a difference!

That’s the power of “ONE”. Never underestimate how you can make a difference to someone’s life!!
