 Day in and day out, check in to reality and check out with dreams,
We are neither super heroes nor do we possess magic wands,
Why are we then expected to be perfect?
Why doesn’t this wall of expectations break any time soon?

A slumber so full of stress, dreams less & more of crass,
Moving down the hill for a walk full of peace,
Admiring the birds lost in a peck,
And the trees

With the right tunes & spaces,
As your heart opens up with grace,
Let it be for a while, it has been such a long wait,

A footstep before caution,
A kinship so pure,
Those scars chanting his name

Rui ka ek baksa, uski thi ek anokhee duniya,
Itne saare khwaabon ke saath,
Kahaan tha usko sukoon paana?
Kai raatein bechain, kai subahein betaab,
Kya koi sunta usse agar woh kuch kehta baje raat ke teen?

Kho gaya jahan na pohoch sake nigaahein,
Har almaari, darwaaza, khidki kuch khaamosh,
Aakhir kahan tha mere chain ka waaris?
Jo aaraam dekar khud jaagta rehta?

Phir ek awaaz aayi bartan …
