Colors Say…..

This is in response to THURSDAY POETRY COMPETITION by H.R.PHOENIX and the topic for this week is COLORS.

Being always rebellious in my way 
Questioning every single day
Why blue for boys
and pink for girls
Even colors will argue
Why gender-specific?


Whiter your skin tone
Goes around the world
More acceptable you become
Why discriminate
We all are humans
With red blood I guess


Don't wear black
Don't wear white
Unauspicious they proclaim
But who defines
The universe we live in
itself black and white


So many colors exist
Beautify our world
Red, blue, green
Yellow and orange
Singing their own melody
Nature cherish all


Close your eyes
Absence of light
Can you feel the pain
of one who can't see
Not even realizing
what dark looks like


Life or death
Light or dark
Day or night
Presence or absence
Hope or grief
All colors flash


Different colors
Different emotions
Shades of life
It contains
Making it more alive.

माफी ……

मानव जीवन का उद्देश्य था 
मानवता का विस्तार
आज वही मानव बन बैठा है
अपने जीवन में खुद अभिशाप
पाप हो या पुण्य
सही हो या गलत
क्या करना है सिर्फ उसे
अपना ही उद्धार
पर किस कीमत पर
थोड़ा तो गौर फर्मा
मिलता है मनुष्य जीवन
कई जन्मों में सिर्फ एक बार
क्या ऐसे ही मिटा दे इसे
कर रोज़ युद्ध विहार
मानव जब मानव का ही विरोधी है
तो वह जन-जीवन से क्या प्रेम करेगा
वह अपने अहम में
सिर्फ सृष्टि का ही अंत करेगा
जिसको सर्वश्रेष्ठ संरचना कहा गया ईश्वर की
अब कर रहा है सबका वो ही संहार
क्या मनुष्यता ख़त्म हो गयी
क्या सिद्ध हो गयी मानव की श्रेष्ठता
कर जन धन मन पर वार
समय है रुक जा
सत्य मार्ग पर फिर पग बढ़ा
आपने विनाश को रोक जरा
थोड़ा थम जा
थोड़ा तो फिर सोच
अपने अभिमान में
जो है उसको तो मत गावा
धरती का ह्रदय विशाल है
तू भी उसकी ही संतान है
शायद माफी मिल जाए ।

Not a friendship at first sight

This poem is dedicated to my Best Friend, to our friendship over the years……..

Not a friendship at first sight 
But a special bond 
Through thick and thin 
Evolved over the years
Slowly matures strong

Counting my blessings
Got you as a friend
Wanted to thank you
But words don't bend 
Hope you understand 

A bond with no genetics
We are different yet so same
Basically two opposite ends
Being there for each other
Understanding words untold

Shared many memories
Laughers and tears
Life's joys and pains
Accepting faults and fears
Patient and forgiving
Lending wisdom and an ear

A bond with endless zeal
Forged out of admiration
And every kind of emotion
Never failing or any doubts
Trust and respect grows even more

when no one around
When the world taking trolls
Twinkles like stars
Make me smile
When in frown

Care and concern
Not to pretend
Whether sweet or sour
Speaking the truth
We have our own shares 

How lucky I am
Grateful and blessed
To have a best friend likliI know if I am lost
You would find me
Here or there 
Distant or close
Just a call away

Thank you
For being you
For being always there
You are my fav
You are my best friend.

Secrets

Buried many secrets 
Untold mysteries giggling loud
Voices echoes
no one can be seen
walls touching sky tall
Clouds are chatting
Thunderstorm arrives
Moonlight murmurs
But doors are now close
the castle stands proud.

When everybody sleeps……

When everybody sleeps 
And I am only one, awake
Sitting silently
On the graveyard of broken dreams

When my dreams all fail
And nights turns more quite
I am only one
Walking on the empty roads
Don't know where it goes

Running between the thoughts
Fighting the demons
Noises become louder
And mind overreacts
Illusions and realities intermingled

Believing everything is fine
Right or wrong I am confused
Expectations killing me
My heart still beating
I am alive

I am the only one
In this empty town of mine
I ever knew
Someone might find me
I am waiting here

My stubborn soul
Never give up
Millions of dreams in head
I am seeing with
Open eyes
Still want one last try.

Unasked Questions!!!!

Where were you when I needed you

Where were you when I faked a smile

Where were you when I am dying inside

Where were you when I hide my anxiety

Where were you when I am running blind

Where were you when I concealed pain

Where were you when I pretended to be fine

Where were you when depression knocks my door

When I have escaped now

What’s the point of this rain

You were not there when I can feel that love

Have you not noticed any signs

Have you not noticed my over happiness

Have you not noticed my detachment

Have you not noticed my mood swings

Have you not noticed my eyes

Have you not noticed my silent cry

Have you not noticed how lonely I am inside

You never asked

I never said

I never wanted your attention

I just wanted someone to listen

I just wanted that soul

Who never judge and,

Understand my unsaid words.

You laughed at my depression

Never felt my pain

Now showing sympathy

Will not give any gain

Maybe I reached wrong people

Who pretended to my friends

Never get an ear who can listen

Still a time

Show some empathy It’s always easy to say

Difficult to be done

I hope you never

Have to go through

What I went inside my head

What I went inside my head!!!!!!

How fake is this world, what is seen is just an illusion, the reality is far hidden

Be kind to everybody, try to listen to them you don’t know what battle they are fighting inside.

विश्वास

जीने की उमंग, मारने का डर 
मनुष्य की है बस यही कमजोरी
कल की बात कल पर निर्भर


कही खुशी तो कही गम
कही उत्सव तो कही मातम
सच मे,नही पता क्या होगा कल?


समय की गति को तो बस चलते जाना
मनुष्य का जोर नही उस पर
समय के साथ कल की बात
कल की बात कल पर  निर्भर
आज की मेहनत,कल का फल


कल की बात कल पर निर्भर
कल की ना सोच
मेहनत कर लगन से
तभी पाएगा फल
कल की बात कल पर निर्भर


धैर्य,सहनशीलता, हिम्मत
कार्य निष्ठा,साहस,मेहनत से
डरता है समय
कल  को भी जान सकते है हम
इस से


विश्वास रख कर कार्य कर
समय को भी हराया जा सकता है
तू  चाहे तो  आपने लिए
आसमाँ पर
भी रास्ता बना सकता है ।

Smiles

smiles are misleading

Don’t ever believe them

Fake smiles, all I know

Ornate my face, people are jealous of

the pain I concealed inside

Turmoil in head

You will never know

Soul crying in the dark

Running in distress

Anxiety which I never divulge

Hiding behind that big smile

More afraid of sympathy

That is never meant

Gives more grief

As nobody ever understands

I smile and laugh

On my petty self

Before anyone else would know

May be

Giving me the strength to face it all

To always put a brave self

Is not easy, you know

want for an escape

Where I can be myself

Not all smiling faces

Are happy faces, you know

Smiles are always misleading, I guess so!!!!!

Thanks for reading it😊😊

And do share with me, do you also think, smiles are misleading?

SUNSETS

sunsets are always beautiful are’t they?

SUNSETS
And this time of the day 
When sunlight and moonlight Mingled among themselves
It is so pure
It is so inspirational
So mesmerizing
It made you forget everything
All your sorrows
All your fears
Just vanish
You get the calmness
That you are longing for so long.....

चाह

“मैं बंद पिंजरे में बैठा
हमेशा यही सोचता
क्या जीवन है मेरा
इतनी जंजीरो से बंधा
कैसी होगी वो बाहर की दुनिया
दिनभर बस यही सोचता
मेरे सपने कब होंगे पूरे
कब मैं बाहर आ पाऊंगा
कुछ डर जाता,सहम जाता
जब कोई रास्ता नजर ना आता
पर फिर भी उड़ाने की चाह मैं रखता । “
© ईरा सिंह

मैंने यह कविता बहुत पहले मन में आने वाले अनेकों सवालो के संधर्ब में लिखी थी । कैसे हम आपने सपनो को पूरा करने के लिए हमेशा मेहनत करते है कभी कभी कुछ सपने पूरे होते है कुछ नही पर हमे कभी भी उम्मीद नही छोड़नी चाहिए

मैनें इस कविता को मेरे लेख क्या कोरोना भगवान का प्रकोप है या मानव उत्तपन आपदा ? में भी प्रयोग किया था परंतु वहां उसका संधर्ब बिल्कुल अलग था ।

मुझे लगा कि ये कविता एक नई पोस्ट में शेयर करनी चाहिए। आशा करती हूं आपको पसंद आई होगी ।

Thank you for reading it !!!!!!!

Stay safe , Stay healthy!!!!!
