जेब में लिए फिरते थे ज़िन्दगी...

याद है अब भी वो 
बचपन की बेफिक्र दुनिया 
छोटी सी ज़िद और ढेरों खुशियां 
दौड़ते-भागते, खबर थी क्या -
कि वक़्त कुछ यूं दौड़ेगा, ज़िन्दगी कुछ यूं मुड़ेगी 
कि उम्र को पछाड़ 
तज़ुर्बा आगे - मीलों आगे होगा 
अब सोचते है...

जेब में लिए फिरते थे ज़िन्दगी 
 आलम ये है कि अब दिखाई भी नहीं देती.

  1. Tarang, this one is too awesome. Less words, more meaning...
    Now at this age, profession and responsibiities shape our lives..

  2. You are right, Anshul.

    Thanks for reading and commenting. Glad you liked it. :)

  3. Interesting take on 'That day' when you realize in the quest of gathering experience we have left the joy of living behind. Maybe that's the exact moment we make our choice to either balance the two or take our pick ?
