मरते देखा है 

वक़्त की आँधी में कुछ नहीं टिकता
हमनें दरख्तों को उखड़ते देखा है

कौन ले जा सका है साथ जमीन
फिर भी भाइयों को लड़ते देखा है

क्या पकड़ सकता है मुट्ठी में अपनी  
बच्चे को परछाई पकड़ते देखा है ?

उम्र भर अकड़ कर जिया था जो
उसे अपने बच्चों से डरते देखा है

वो बिन हमारे जीना सीख गया अमित
जिसे हमने खुद पे मरते देखा है

  1. Nothing lasts in storm-swept sands of time
    I’ve seen mighty oaks being uprooted

    Who can carry estate on the final journey
    Yet, I’ve seen brothers disgruntled and separated

    What can you hold between your fingers
    I’ve seen kids chasing shadows, being disappointed

    The tyrant who always held his neck stiff
    Was seen scared of his children … Corrected?

    See who has learnt to live without me
    Narcissus in the admits to being over-rated
