Don’t Quit Poem

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Dil akhir tu kyun rota hai

jab jab dard ka badal chaya
jab gam ka saya lhraya,
jab ansoo palko tak aaya
jab ye tanha dil ghabraya,
humne dil ko ye samjhaya akhir dil tu kyu rota hai
duniya mein yun hi hota hai,
ye jo ghre sannate hain
waqt ne sabko hi bante hian,
thoda gam hai sabka kissa
thodi dhoop hai sabka hissa,
ankh teri bekar hi nam hai
her pal ek naya mausam hai,
kyu tu aise pal khota hai
dil akhir tu kyun rota hai……

Ek Baat Hoton tak hai jo aayi nahin
Bas aankhon se hai zaankti tumse kbhi…. mujse kbhi…. kuch lafj hai jo woh maangti
jinko pehnke kabhi hoton tak aa jaye wo..awaaj ki baho me bahe dalke ithlaaye wo
lekin jo ek baat hai…ehsas hi ehsaas hai
khushbo si hai… jaise hava me jo tairti,
khushboo jobhi awaaz hai…..
jiska pata tumko bhi hai…jiski khbar mujhko bhi hai
duniya se bhi chupta nahi…..ye na jane kaisa raaz hai!

Pighle neelam sa behta ye sama,
neeli neeli si khamoshiyan,
na kahin hai zameen na kahin aasmaan,
sarsaraati hui tehniyaan pattiyaan,
keh raheen hai bas ek tum ho yahan,
…bas main hoon, meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein,
aisi gehraiyaan, aisi tanhaiyaan, aur main… sirf main.
Apne hone par mujhko yakeen aa gaya.
