A Flower to Myself – खुद को एक फूल दिया है

Have a Rose or any other Flower in your hand and read on

First Hindi version which is followed by International Version

Taken from bilingual poem collection ‘Poetic Buddha’ by Siddharth

आज मैने खुद को एक फूल दिया है

जो टूटा था… बिखरा था… जोड़ा है… जिया है

जिस्म का पैरहन, सलवटें वक़्त की

मन के कदमों पर बेड़ियां सख़्त सी

पिंजरों में पलती क़ौम को आकाश नया दिया है

जोड़ा है… जिया है

आज मैने खुद को एक फूल दिया है

International Version

A New Day.. Today

I have gifted a rose to Myself

Try doing that to Your self

Let the Poison flow

And the strength grow

See the sky beyond the bars of Cage

Break free of chains around

Make your mind a sage

Hey You, Have a date with you


All Journeys end up with in you
