    परन्तु, भूल कर भी

    फूलते नहीं तुम!

    माटी-सम

    तुम में आती नमी ना

    क्या यह तुम्हारी

    कमी ना ?

    बता दो रे कमीना!

     

    तुम में कहाँ है वह

    जल-धारण करने की क्षमता ?

    जलाशय में रह कर भी

    युगों-युगों तक

    नहीं बन सकते

    जलाशय तुम!

    मैं तुम्हें

    हृदय-शून्य तो नहीं कहूँगा

    परन्तु

    पाषाण-हृदय अवश्य है तुम्हारा,

    दूसरों का दुःख-दर्द

    देख कर भी

    नहीं आ सकता कभी

    उसे पसीना

    है ऐसा तुम्हारा

    ...सीना।

     

    फिर भी

    ऋषि-सन्तों का सदा

     

    सदुपदेश - सदादेश

    हमें यही मिला, कि

    पापी से नहीं

    पर! पाप से,

    पंकज से नहीं

     

    But, even by mistake,

    You don't get bloomed up!

    You don't catch dampness

    As the Soil does,

    Isn't it

    Your deficiency ?

    Tell me, O thou mean fellow!

     

    Where is there within you

    That capacity of sustaining water ?

    While staying into a water-tank

    You can't become

    Yourself a drift to water,

    For centuries !

    I won't tell you, really,

    To be heartless;

    But

    You are surely stone-hearted,

    Your chest holds likeness...

    To that of the one

    Who can never

    Sweat itself out

    In spite of beholding

    Others in trouble and pain !

     

    Even then,

    The preachings and precepts

    Of Sages and Saints always

    Communicated us, indeed, that-

    Hate the sin

    But, not the sinner,

    Hate the mire

    But, not the lotus
