ज्यों निकल कर Jyon nikal kar

(This poem was perhaps in Hindi text book
of my 5th or 6th standard. Despite passing of
decades I have never been able to forget it.
See if it appeals to you also.)

ज्यों निकल कर बादलों क़ी गोद से
थी अभी इक बूंद कुछ आगे बढ़ी
सोचने फिर फिर यही जी में लगी
आह घर छोड़ कर मैं क्यों यों कढ़ी

देव मेरे भाग्य में है क्या बदा
में बचूंगी या मिलूँ गी धूल में
या जलूँगी गिर अंगारे पर किसी
चू पडूँ गी या कमल के फूल में

बह गयी उस काल इक ऐसी हवा
वह समुन्दर क़ी ऑर आई अनमनी
एक सुन्दर सीप का मुहं था खुला
वह उसी में जा पड़ी मोती बनी

लोग यूँ ही झिझकते सोचते हैं अक्सर
जब क़ी उन को छोड़ना पड़ता है घर
किन्तु घर का छोड़ना अक्सर उन्हें
बूद लौं देता है कुछ और कर

Jyon nikal kar badlon ki god se
thi abhi ik boond kuchh aage badhi
sochne phir phir yahi jee men lagi
aah ghar chhod kar main kyon yon kadhi

dev mere bhagya mein hai kya bada
main bachoon gi ya miloon gi dhool mein
ya jaoon gi gir angaare par kisi
choo padun gi ya kamal ke phool mein

bah gayi us kaal ik aisi hawa
vah samander ki or aayi anmani
ek sunder seep ka moohn tha khula
vah usi mein jaa padi moti bani

log yuh hi jhijhkate sochte hain aksar
jab ki un ko chhodna padta hai ghar
kintu gha ka chhodna aksar unhen
bool loun deta hai kuchh aur kar.

(Poet: Ayodhya Singh Upadhaya)
