Lonely in a Crowd

Through all those years of pain and sorrow
Every moment a testimony of my thorny existence
Never did my bleeding heart make a sound
I guess that is why I feel loneliest in a crowd

Deception was his favourite pastime
Betrayal, the dagger in his cloak
Plunged deep into the small of my back
All it gave my dead emotions was a blood soak

Friends enjoyed the drama, society the show
As our relation rotted with time and tide
Not a soul offered a hand or a hug
All the social voyeurs saw it end blow by blow

The fear of death engulfs me such
I have nowhere to run or hide
Redemption is not a choice much
Just want a reassurance by my side

Once the life of every social meet
Now I sink into an obscure corner
Today I’m struggling to find my feet
And the air of unsureness takes me further

Through all those years of pain and sorrow
Every moment a testimony of my thorny existence
Never did my bleeding heart make a sound
I guess that is why I feel loneliest in a crowd

Lakshya Ki Awaaz

Dil toot gaya tha pyaar ke bazaar mein
Sapne bikhar gaye the zindagi ki giraft mein
Jazbaat jo samete the chun chun kar
Choor hue dheere dheere waqt ke gujarne se

Bhool gayi thi woh saans lene ki tehzeeb
Sar par junoon tha samaaj se ladhne ka
Par jab apno ne hi peeth par kiya waar
Saamne aayi do dhaari duniya ki asli tasveer

Lekin waqt ke sannaton se ladhti hui
Rooh pe giri umeed ki ek kiran
Chal padi woh apni rah phir se banane ko
Iss jahaan se duur apni manzil ki dagar par

Himmat hai ab bhi iraadon mein bohot
Buland hai dil-o-dimaag ka sandes
Ijaazat ki zaroorat nahi usse kisi aur ki
Lakshya paane apna chali woh pardes

Ajeeb Raahein

Jeevan ke safar mein kuch raahein aisi dekhi hai

Kahi mehsoos hui mann mein kashmakash

Aur kinara choomne se katraaye hum

Kahi hawaaon mein thi ajeeb si tanhaayee

Phir bhi apne rooh ki pukaar sun na paaye hum

Jeevan ke safar mein kuch raahein aisi dekhi hai

 

Jab takraaye hum tumse inhi raahon mein

Waqt kho baithe tumhari masoom nigahon mein

Kiya na pyaar ka izhaar, na door rehne se inkaar

Phir bhi qaid mein the tumhare saare jazbaat

 

Din badal gaye saalon mein

Hoton se ek labs bhi na nikla

Shaayad darr tha tumhe khone ka

Shaayad aham ki jeet aur pyaar ki haar

 

Bichadne ka samay aa raha tha

Haath badhaane ka lamha kho gaya

Aisi thi dastaan humaari ankahee ki

Zindagi ke panno mein ek kahaani si

 

Jeevan ke safar mein kuch raahein aisi dekhi hai

Kahi mehsoos hui mann mein kashmakash

Aur kinara choomne se katraaye hum

Kahi hawaaon mein thi ajeeb si tanhaayee

Phir bhi apne rooh ki pukaar sun na paaye hum

Jeevan ke safar mein kuch raahein aisi dekhi hai

Dilon Ke Darmiyaan

Do dilon ke darmiyaan
Ek samundar hai pyaar ka
Ek ehsaas hai ikraar ka
Us kinare tum ho intezaar me
Is kinare mein hoon laachar sa

Kyun na bane hum musafir
Jazbaaton ki kashti mein
Leheron ke sang badhe ik duje ki ore
Aur mile armaanon ke kinaare pe

Mehsoos karo meri betaabi ko
Mehsoos karo meri tanhayee ko
Baahon me gher lo mujhe aise
Lage ki meri zindagi ka koi astitva ho

Tumhare bina kaise kate yeh pal
Na mein jaanoon na hi khuda
Bas yeh dil jaanta hai
Ab lamhon me na hoga gham
Na yeh dhadkane hongi juda

The New World

The world has changed
I do not know how
Restless in every act
Causing uniform sorrow

The world has changed
People pay for water
Gorging on worldly junk
We’re all getting fatter

The world has changed
Honking is the new fad
Road rage claims so many
Pedestrians are going mad

The world has changed
Technology is our friend
We alienate loved ones
And stand alone in the end

The world has changed
Consumerism is the norm
Gone are the wonderful days
When simplicity was uniform

The world is changing
And it will never stop
Not until our civilization
Comes to the edge of a steep drop

When lies win

When the voice of truth is blunted
All hope and love is lost
Forget those whom you once knew
Even the dear ones are shunted

Life struggles and pines
Worshipped is the sea of lies
When even death seems divine
And none can hear your cries

Leave behind your mind and soul
For it’s rotting with decadence
Rejuvenation is the ideal goal
Should you really want penance

Think you can. Think you will.
Though the task looks uphill
Discard the lie and embrace your life
Hope as is will again be rife

Simba

His mane was spiked in anger

Around him he sensed danger

All he’d done was kill a deer

But somewhere near was a prowling peer

He’d been in exile for years now

No one quite understood how

His father had been betrayed

By his own brother who was strayed



The death had taken all by shock

The family was turned into a mock

That was when he chose to leave

Never to return, never to grieve

He’d made friends in the wild

Who ensured he never was riled

They made him smile and laugh

And took care of his emotion graph

Pumba and Timon they were known

Both were fun right to the bone

They stood by him no matter what

Love him a lot and never fought

But the time had come for him

To prove to all who were dim

He was born to be a king

To wear the crown and the royal ring

He had to go back home

To sit on the throne

Back to his beloved Nala

Back to where he was christened Simba
