Sludge

 

jab se qareeb ho ke chale zindagi se hum
khud apne aaine ko lage ajnabi se hum

wo kaun hai jo paas bhi hai aur duur bhi
har lamha maangte hain kisi ko kisi se hum

ehsaas ye bhi kam nahi jeene ke waaste
har dard ji rahe hain tumhaari khushi se hum

kuchh duur chal ke raaste sab ek se lage
milne gaye kisi se, mil aaye kisi se hum

kis mod par hayaat ne ponhcha diya humein
naaraz hai ghamon se, na khush hain khushi se hum

gulzar

The sludge of life. It holds us, it traps us, it draws curtains over our eyes.

Our sorrows bring us closer, they bind us together in our common humanity.

If only we stopped denying them.
