मेरा गन्तव्यहीन यात्राहरु

यतिका बर्ष बितिसकेछन मेरा कुनै लक्ष्य बिनानै । अब जीउनु पनि कति नै छ र बाँकि यस धर्तीमा ? अनि के नै पो गर्न सक्छु र मेरा बाँकि जिन्दगीमा? फगत जीउनु सिवाए । लक्ष्यहरु प्राप्तिको लागि जीन्दगीका दौरानमा अनेकौ हण्डर पनि खाइयो, तर अपसोच! गन्तब्यमा नपुग्दै मेरा ती सबै लक्ष्यहरु बीचबाटोमै चकनाचुर हुन्थे । हेरौं, यी मेरा बाँकि जीन्दगीमा लक्ष्य प्राप्ति हुनेछ या छैन? तरपनि गन्तव्यहीन यात्रामा लक्ष्य प्राप्तिको लागि मेरो हर प्रयास रहनेछ.....रहिरहनेछ

मेरा भावना...

धन कमाउने ठूलो सपना देख्दै छु म विदेशमा
थाकेको यो ढाड घाममा सेक्दै छु म विदेशमा

उहाँ छँदा नाम्लो पनि नछोएका हातहरूले
सकी नसकी भारीहरू थेग्दै छु म विदेशमा

सक्दिनँ म हिँड्न पनि दुखिएका पैतालाले
ऐया ! आमा भन्दै भुइँ टेक्दै छु म विदेशमा
