Waqt kaha…

time

Ulaj gaye sab apne kaam mein
Nahi pata kya milta hai aaram mein
Ab woh choti choti baaton par,
Muskurane k liye waqt kaha…

Khushi k pal mann mein reh gaye
Kaam karte karte din dhal gaya
Par woh pyaar bhari baatein karne k liye,
Apno k liye waqt kaha…

Mausam k badalte rehte hai roop
Kabhi thandi toh kabhi aa jaati hai dhoop
Par woh khuli hawa mein,
Saas lene k liye waqt kaha…

~ Dhara Shah

Waqt kaha…

Wake! Run! Win!

Everyone’s expectations was letting him down
When he failed people used to frown.
Getting upset when he was on the verge of quitting
All around him the words started echoing…
Oh you boy! Wake
Before the opportunity falls into the lake
Leave aside whatever is fake
Try out and grab your piece of cake.

While he learnt to keep moving
He discovered that people were actually running.
Getting fearful when he was on the verge of quitting
All around him the words started echoing…
Oh you boy! Run
Before the fire triggers from the gun.
Leave aside all the fun
Try out everything under the sun.

When he thought that it was smartness which he lacked
It was fear and self doubt that was holding him back
Getting depressed when he was on the verge of quitting
All around him the words started echoing…
Oh you boy! Win
Before you break apart from within
Leave aside all the fear before you begin
Try out and show your glowing grin.

~ Dhara Shah

Wake! Run! Win!
