ज़रा आज तो जी ले – Poem on Competition


ज़रा आज तो जी ले is a poem on competition.

This poem is about almost every one of us, who lose themselves in the competition going in our world and forget to live. This poem is inspired from “KKK” i.e. Karishma Ke Kalam, a collection of beautiful lines written by my sister “Karishma Peshwani”. The actual lines are as follows, “Life me upar jane ke liye hum apne moral values se compromise kyu kare, jabki aakhir me hum sab ko upar he jana hai“. As always this poem is also in Roman Hindi, so a description of the same is given below in English.

सफ़र शुरू किया कल जब, एक जशन होगा वो सोचा था…

हर कदम जो बरता, एक दिल कही जलता था…

तकलीफ़ किसी को देने का इरादा न्ही था, फिर क्यू कोई दिल दुख़्ता था…

कदम बराया, तो सफ़र बदला, वक्त बदला, और सब कुछ बदला सा था…

अब सफ़र एक उचई पाने का था, रास्ता खोटा था, क्यूकी वो छोटा था…

साथ चलने वालो को, धकेला, आगे बार्ने के लिए था…

दिल तोरे, रिश्ते तोरे, सब एक मुकाम पाने के लिए था…

पहोचे जब उस उचाई पे, तब समझा, मे अकेला था…

रिश्ते जो छूट गये पीछे, वो कितना अनमोल था…

जिस मुकाम पे अब हू, वहा से अब रुख़ मोर्ना मुश्किल था…

एक दर्द था अब दिल मे, जो लबो मे बया करना मुशकिल था…

ना जाने क्यू सब उपर जाने को तरसते हे, जब मरके भी हम उपर ही जाना था…

आज ही तो ह्मारे पास हे, हास ले, रो ले, जी ले, ज़रा आज तो जी ले…

This poem is about the journey we travel in our life from being nothing to something. We start a new journey called life, and expect everything will be wonderful, but as we start our journey, and take a step forward then there is someone or the other close to us, who is jealous of our success. We never have an intention to hurt someone by our journey but still people get hurt.

As we move further, the journey changes, the time changes and it then changes everything, and now we also change as the journey is now about reaching a height. The route is bad as it is narrow, and because of its narrowness we drag back people who where with us, to get ahead.

To reach that height we had hurt many people and broke many relations, but when we reach there, its then that we realize the relations that we had left behind where precisions and now we are at a position that we can’t go back and fix things/hearts as the cracks can be healed but not removed completely. Our heart also has a pain that can’t be shared, as there is no one with us, for whom our pains matters, and now we have to live alone with that pain.

Why do we strive so much to reach the heights, when after our death we will receive a height that can’t be compared to other heights. Its today that we can live, enjoy, be happy, cry on silly things etc, so besides wasting our life in a competition that is not necessary we should live our life’s, not just spend it.
