बेचैनियां कुछ कहती हैं तुमसे
कभी नब्ज़ पकड़ के जाँची है इनकी
देखा है कि कितनी तेज़ चल रही हैं
एक फैसले से पहले जो सोने नही देती तुम्हे
किसी इम्तेहां का कितना डर होता है
कभी जो एक बात रह जाती है अनकही
तो कितना परेशान कर देती हैं तुम्हें
जो एक बदलाव के इशारे से तंग कर देती है
खुशी में भी एक संकोच ला दे
उस बेचैनी को कभी परखा है तुमने?
ना जाने किस ओर ले जाना चाहती हैं तुम्हे
शायद कुछ बता रही हैं तुमको
कहीं हाँथ तुम्हारा थाम के ले जा रही हैं तुमको।

@musafir
Hidden from all
I speak to you without words
No one but you will hear my story
Even if I tell it in the middle
Of the crowd

@musafir maine sachi bola hai @Vishsai You forget Punjabi is 1 of my mother tongues. The other is Hindustani

@Almas
चीखती हैं कि क्या है जो रह गया है बाकी
चिल्लाती हैं कि कुछ अधूरा है अब तक
सुनती हो उनकी आवाज़ उनकी परेशानी
या फिर अनसुना कर उनको फिर छोड़ आती हो
तुम दुनियादारी में फ़िर खुद को भूल जाती हो?

@musafir wow! Is this a continuation of the previous one? This is 💕

@Almas this was just a spontaneous reply to your comment. Wrote it just now.

@musafir 👏👏👏 Greatt! Dukhti rag mei hath rakha aapne.

@Almas the purpose of writing this is to tell you that we are restless for a reason and we should sit with it instead of escaping. I hope it gives you the will and courage to face it :)

@musafir Thank you so much. I hope it does. And I hope we all overcome the reasons that cause our restlessness.

@musafir I loved it. Took me a long while to read given how challenged I am in reading Hindi. I am glad I made the effort given how lovely the words were.

@Samyukth that coming from you makes my day! Escape is the most frequent route we take from restlessness, but we always fail to understand what they want to tell us. That's how the poem was inspired.

@musafir A pretence of strength is one that all of us have been conditioned to portray. So much so that any display of human frailty is usually frowned upon and seen as a sign of weakness. Restlessness,IMHO, is the spark that ignites introspection and questioning and is fundamental to a strong sense of personal balance.
