Atal Bihari Vajpayee Poems
#1. दूध में दरार पड़ गई
ख़ून क्यों सफ़ेद हो गया?
भेद में अभेद खो गया।
बँट गये शहीद, गीत कट गए,
कलेजे में कटार दड़ गई।
दूध में दरार पड़ गई।
खेतों में बारूदी गंध,
टूट गये नानक के छंद
सतलुज सहम उठी, व्यथित सी बितस्ता है।
वसंत से बहार झड़ गई
दूध में दरार पड़ गई।
अपनी ही छाया से बैर,
गले लगने लगे हैं ग़ैर,
ख़ुदकुशी का रास्ता, तुम्हें वतन का वास्ता।
बात बनाएँ, बिगड़ गई।
दूध में दरार पड़ गई।
#2. जीवन की ढलने लगी सांझ
जीवन की ढलने लगी सांझ
उमर घट गई
डगर कट गई
जीवन की ढलने लगी सांझ।
बदले हैं अर्थ
शब्द हुए व्यर्थ
शान्ति बिना खुशियाँ हैं बांझ।
सपनों में मीत
ठिठक रहे पांव और झिझक रही झांझ।
जीवन की ढलने लगी सांझ।
#3. टूट सकते हैं मगर हम झुक नहीं सकते
सत्य का संघर्ष सत्ता से
न्याय लड़ता निरंकुशता से
अंधेरे ने दी चुनौती है
किरण अंतिम अस्त होती है
दीप निष्ठा का लिये निष्कंप
वज्र टूटे या उठे भूकंप
यह बराबर का नहीं है युद्ध
हम निहत्थे, शत्रु है सन्नद्ध
हर तरह के शस्त्र से है सज्ज
और पशुबल हो उठा निर्लज्ज
किन्तु फिर भी जूझने का प्रण
अंगद ने बढ़ाया चरण
प्राण-पण से करेंगे प्रतिकार
समर्पण की माँग अस्वीकार
दाँव पर सब कुछ लगा है, रुक नहीं सकते
टूट सकते हैं मगर हम झुक नहीं सकते
#4. मैं अखिल विश्व का गुरू महान
मैं अखिल विश्व का गुरू महान,
देता विद्या का अमर दान,
मैंने दिखलाया मुक्ति मार्ग
मैंने सिखलाया ब्रह्म ज्ञान।
मेरे वेदों का ज्ञान अमर,
मेरे वेदों की ज्योति प्रखर
मानव के मन का अंधकार
क्या कभी सामने सका ठहर?
मेरा स्वर नभ में घहर-घहर,
सागर के जल में छहर-छहर
इस कोने से उस कोने तक
कर सकता जगती सौरभ भय।
