आदमी आदमी से मिलता है / जिगर मुरादाबादी: a really nice poem in hindi

When i was browsing through net, i came across this poem:
आदमी आदमी से मिलता है…

आदमी आदमी से मिलता है
दिल मगर कम किसी से मिलता है

भूल जाता हूँ मैं सितम उस के
वो कुछ इस सादगी से मिलता है

आज क्या बात है के फूलों का
रंग तेरी हँसी से मिलता है

मिल के भी जो कभी नहीं मिलता
टूट कर दिल उसी से मिलता है

कार-ओ-बार-ए-जहाँ सँवरते हैं
होश जब बेख़ुदी से मिलता है
– जिगर मुरादाबादी

Pushp ki abhilasha: पुष्प की अभिलाषा

पुष्प की अभिलाषा

चाह नहीं मैं सुरबाला के
गहनों में गूँथा जाऊँ

चाह नहीं, प्रेमी-माला में
बिंध प्यारी को ललचाऊँ

चाह नहीं, सम्राटों के शव
पर हे हरि, डाला जाऊँ

चाह नहीं, देवों के सिर पर
चढ़ूँ भाग्य पर इठलाऊँ

मुझे तोड़ लेना वनमाली
उस पथ पर देना तुम फेंक

मातृभूमि पर शीश चढ़ाने
जिस पर जावें वीर अनेक ।।

Pushp ki abhilasha

Chah Nahi Main SurBala Ke Gehano Mein Goontha Jaaun
Chaah Nahi Premi Mala Mein Bindh Pyaari Ko Lalchaaun.

Chaah Nahi Samraato Ke Shav Par He Hari Dala Jaaun
Chaah Nahi Dewon Ke Sar Par Chadhoon Bhagya Par Itraun.

Mujhe Tod Lena Banmali, Us Path Par Tum Dena Phaink
Matra Bhoomi Per Sheesh Chadhane,Jis Path Jaayen Veer Anek.

What violence is (2)

i stop at the red street light
you open the kerbside door
you slide into my dusty car
it is an ordinary car
but
it is my car
i love my car
it fits my shoulders
the driver’s seat is good
for my lower back
i don’t know you
who are you?
What do you want?
the street light turns green
you shout, “GOD!”
right up close to my face, “GOD!”
you refuse to get out of my car
that is an Act of Violence

you walk into my house
wave God and a flag in my face
take over my front room and the kitchen
(what the hell?!)
yes, the air conditioning is eccentric
and the doors creak
but i love my house
you move your family in
your wife, her mother, your brother,
your second cousin, twice divorced,
her two kids
you bar mine from the door
you refuse to leave
you spread to the spare room
start re-decorating
all of that is an Act of Violence

you bulldoze your way into my garden
you build a house there in my garden
you wave the promise God made you
you ignore the promise God made me
(how God must be laughing up there in the sky)
you bring more of your relatives
their families with their beautiful
but in the wrong place
children
to live in that house (a war zone)
that is an Act of Violence

what would you expect me to do?
what in any one’s name
would you expect me to do?
what would you do if it happened to you?

You build your cities on Palestinian land
That is an Act of Violence
The world watches
and does nothing to stop you
is that not also an Act of Violence?

To stop the war religion gives
To stop the war that greed lives
To stop the testosterone initiative
To stop the killing of innocent kids
First, stop the denial of what violence is
