majaboor – a poem by Amrita Pritam

meree maan kee kokh majaboor thee…
main bhee to ek insaan hoon
aazaadiyon kee takkar mein
us chot ka nishaan hoon
us haadase kee lakeer hoon
jo meree maan ke maathe par
laganee zaroor thee
meree maan kee kokh majaboor thee

main vah laanat hoon
jo insaan par pad rahee hai
main us vaqt kee paidaish hoon
jab taare toot rahe the
jab sooraj bujh gaya tha
jab chaand kee aankh benoor thee
meree maan kee kokh majaboor thee

main ek zakhm ka nishaan hoon,
main maan ke jism ka daag hoon
main zulm ka vah bojh hoon
jo meree maan uthaatee rahee
meree maan ko apane pet se
ek durgandh-see aatee rahee

kaun jaane kitana mushkil hai
ek zulm ko apane pet mein paalana
ang-ang ko jhulasaana
aur haddiyon ko jalaana
main us vaqt ka phal hoon –
jab aazaadee ke ped par
baur pad raha tha
aazaadee bahut paas thee
bahut door thee
meree maan kee kokh majaboor thee…
