i was reading kabira's couplets.. dohas.. and i found it very nice way to express feelings.. i started humming and wrote few last weeks.. here are they
Jo agar tu karta kahi, kahat wahi jo tu karat
Na hota fir panga koi, jagva hota prem magan 1
if you do what you say, say only what you do
there wont be heartache, happiness will follow you.
Maan ka panchi bada anootha, bandh pinjre se uda jaye,
mane agar jo kaha tera to, nirvana tujko dila de 2
bird called mind is very interesting, fly away from locked cage
if he does what you would say, he can assures you your nirvana
kar sirf itna tu abhi, jitna sambhla jaye,
bada chuha jo nigal gaya, aab saap bichara pachtaye. 3
do only rite now, things that you can take care of
after eating giant mouse, poor snake regrets.
ram ram ka le kar naam, kiya naam badnaam,
jo dekhe raam ne tere kaam, dil uska bhi jal jaye. 4
By chanting Ramís name, you disgraced his name,
If he could see what you did, he surely would be embarrassed
jivan ki bas eek hi aas, kab mitegi meri yeh pyaas,
jate kaha bas yeh bata de, chalte chalte thak gaye pav. 5
There is only one question, when I will quench my thirst,
Tell me where I will have to go, I am tired of walking clueless.
abhimaan tu kar kar ke, na kar apna apaman,
khud kahe na bade hote, yeah shayad kaheta kabira aaj. 6
Donít be proud of yourself, you will dishonor yourself
You wont become superior if you say so, that what might Kabira have said.
aap hase to jag hasa, aap roye jag roye,
thank u jo apne kah diya, dil gad gad ho jaye. 7
when you smile world smile, when you cry world cry,
by saing just thank you, you have just made my day.
ku rovat he raat ko, so ja na chup chap,
kal din fir aayega, kar lena baki kaam. 8
why you sleeping at night, go back to sleep quietly,
sun will rise again tomorrow, then finish your left work.
Me going from left to right, donít u try to stop me tonight,
I will fly from here to moon; donít wake me up to spoil my mood. 9
Never knew it will be so funny, going naked when it so sunny,
I just wanted to go full tan, never knew I will be damned. 10
karta rah tu apna karam, kahe fal ki chinta hoy,
jitna tera hai tu payega, na kam jyada hoy. 11
You just keep on doing what you can, donít worry of what you would get,
You will get what you deserve, nothing less or more ever given.
hui raat fir huva savera, jo aya usko hai jana,
kar aisa tu kaam yaha par, yaad kare tujko jane par. 12
Night is gone its morning again, one who came has to go,
Do such work while you are here; you remembered when you are gone.
chalti rahti tu nirantar, nadiya kese rahti to nirmal,
chalti rahti me nirantar, rahti isi liye me nirmal. 13
You always keep on running, river why are you so clear,
I always keep on running, that how I am always clear.
Naam naam me rakha kya hai, keh gaya koi maha gyani,
khud ka naam likha usne fir, baat samaj me apne na aayi. 14
What there in the name, said some very famous man,
They wrote his name beside, I just donít understand.
I go out in full moon night, there no need of candlelight,
One moon shining in the sky, Iíve got one more by my side. 15
