अभी बाकी है
दिल में है जो दबी, एक आस बाकी है,
मिला सकूँ मैं खुद से नजर एक प्रयास बाकी है।
ये अदृश्य ज़ंजीरो नें जकड़ा है मुझे,
फिर भी आज़ादी का एक एहसास बाकी है।
खुद को देखा है हारता मैंने,
सौ बार हार कर मैंने जीत देखी है,
मुझको तुम निर्बल ना समझना,
टूटकर भी मुझमें एक विश्वास बाकी है।
सर झुकाकर मैंने तेरी हर बात मानी है,
कुछ तो तुझपर मेरा उधार बाकी है,
मुझे पल दो पल तो दे खुशकिस्मती के,
जो कर गुजरूं, वो इतिहास बाकी है।
ना तो सुकून, ना चैन बाकी है,
जब तक है जान एक उम्मीद बाकी है,
ऐ सपनों की दुनियाँ तू ओझल ना हो,
मेरे हौंसले की एक छलांग बाकी है।
There’s still something left
There’s still some hope buried deep in my heart,
There’s still some fight to raise my head,
These invisible chains of morality are holding me back,
Yet, I’m still experiencing a sense of freedom.
I’ve seen myself fail,
And then I’ve seen the victory that came after a hundred failures,
Don’t consider me weak,
There’s still a lot of belief left in me.
I’ve bowed down before all your choices,
You owe me something,
Give me at least a few moments of good luck,
I’ve still not been able to create history.
There’s no sense of calm left in me,
But there I will remain hopeful till my last breath,
My dearest dreams, don’t fade away,
I’m still to take a courageous leap of faith..
