पहली किरण : Initial Streak

मन में अंधेरा है घिरा ,
चारों ओर सन्नाटा है भरा ,
इसका अंत भी है निश्चित ,
संभल जा मन , ना हो विचिलित । 

जब काली रात और भी हो काली ,
जब सारी राहें दिखें खाली ,
इस समय हिम्मत मत हारना ,
बस कुछ क्षण हमें है लड़ना । 

हर अंधकार ले जाता है संग ,
दुखः दर्द के सभी अंश और रंग,
समझो अंत आ गया है निकट ,
अब न राहें यूँ  तू भटक । 

अंधकार से है ऊपर उठना ,
दृढ़ संकल्प ह्रदय में बनाना ,
यह है परीक्षा का कठिन पल ,
जुटे रहो, तपस्या न जाये विफल । 

यह पल तो ज़िन्दगी की नियति है ,
हर लम्हा जीने की सादगी है ,
मुस्कराकर इन कठिन रास्तों को ,
पार कर लेंगे अगर निष्य हो । 

सूर्य की पहली किरण बिखरी ,
मन में आस फिर है निखरी,
लाया अपने संग परीक्षा का परिणाम ,
अव्वल आया हमारा दृढ़ संकल्प महान । 

मन में उठी ख़ुशी की लहर ,
निखर गए चारों पहर ,
"जो काले अंधकार से जीता है ,
वही नयी सुबह देखता है "। 


English Translation:

Heart is surrounded by darkness
Silence is filed everywhere
End to this is for sure
Don't get fickle my heart, stay calm.

When dark night is even darker
Where every path is empty
Don't loose strength
battle is for just few more moments.

Every dark side takes along
sorrow despair and it's bits along
now the end is closer
don't get lost in paths now.

Raise above the darkness
keep your heart stronger
This is hardest moment of exam
Keep going, now your hard work shall pay.

This moment is destiny of life
live with peace
Smile on this difficult paths
one can cross it, if decision taken.

First ray of sun is out
heart is happy with it
brings along result of examination
Top comes the great self confidence.

Heart is filled with happiness radiance
entire day is filled with galore
the one who win battles from darkness
shall only see bright day.

  1. I read the Hindi lines ( I can read, but takes time) and then scrolled down to comment only to see that there was an English translation... :-D

    Beautiful lines Sonal... you're right to say that darkness is just a passing phase of life and we should face it with courage... :-)

    1. The English translation is added for better understanding of the poetry.Thank you for appreciating.
