"Hum Suffer"

Just something off the mind....at one go...no multiple drafts!

Humsafar the Hindi word for a soul mate and Hum Suffer is the 'Hinglish' derivation of the word conveying, we all Suffer. I feel our true soul mate is suffering. So here it is to all Hum Suffers, to one and all who suffer silently everyday!

Zindagi mein mile kuch humsafar,
and I feel, karein kyun Hum Suffer?

Safar shuru hua by giving Amma Suffer,
Aur khatm honay tak we all Suffer!

School aur college thi to ek haseen dagar
Jahaan kuch Teacher banein saale Hum Suffer!

Jab dost kartey thay Suffer,
to unmein mile naye Hum Suffer!

Yeh dost samajhte mere dard ko,
Because for once, thaa hamara common Suffer!

Society ke rules follow karte karte,
Aur milay naye Hum Suffer!

Maa-baap kehte Life banana hai to aur padh,
MBA ki kulhaadi khud pe maar kar, met hundreds of more Hum Suffers!

Zindagi ki shuruaat aur ab tak ke darmiyaan,
Ishq ke maare praani banein Hum Suffer!

Almighty ko laga thaa yeh sab kam,
To dharm, politics aur City Life ka phoda bumm!

Koi Sena, Kisi ka agenda har jagah par,
Saare Mumbaikar hain thukay hue Hum Suffer!

Mazhab ke naam par jab jale hazaaron ghar,
Tab samajh aaya hum nahi karenge ab Suffer!

Zindagi mein milenge saare hi Hum Suffer,
Lekin inhay he banana hai humein apna humsafar!

I usually make parodies of songs instantaneously, so I though I'd write some slam - poetry! This is my first attempt; wrote this at one go in few minutes with top-of-the-mind words.

Waiting for your responses.
