सिलती – उधड़ती 1

I have two versions of this poem. This version is from the perspective of a disabled person. The individual is going through a paradigm shift in his mind realizing that he doesn’t have enough faculties to lead a normal life. However as the person was growing up, the dreams were as real as any kid would have but post realization of his/her limitations, the individual is trying to recreate a new world with what he/she has.

में उधेड़ता हूँ
अपनी ही सोच को
सिलाई दर सिलाई
कोशिश सिर्फ़ इतनी सी है
कि ख़ुद को जान लूँ

कुछ सपने थे
बिना पैर के
अब उम्मीदों ने दौड़ना सीख लिया
तो ख़्वाब गुम है

सिलता हूँ
फिर से सोच को
कभी एक हाथ से,
कभी एक आँख से,
कहीं कुछ अधूरा सा है
मन तो फिर भी पूरा सा है

सिलती – उधड़ती
पूरी होती ये ज़िंदगी।

संदीप व्यास
