नन्हे कदम

वृद्धि गोविन्द

कभी बेटी बन ,
तो कभी माँ बन ,
बहुत ज़ख्म झेले उसने ;

कभी बहन बन,
तो कभी दोस्त बन,
बहुत दर्द उठाए उसने ;

कहाँ सोचा था
उस नन्ही सी जान ने ,
इस धरती पर पाँव रखते ही
एक जंग शुरू होजाएगी ;

एक पल देवी कह , पूजा जाएगा
अगले ही पल डायन कह, धुत्कार दिया जाएगा ;

एक तरफ लक्ष्मी कह , सम्मान दिया जाएगा
दूसरी तरफ मर्दो के पैरों तले , रौंदा जाएगा ;

फिर भी ,
उसने हार न मानी;

चेहरे पर मुस्कान लिए ,
आँखों में चमक लिए ,
अपने सपनो की उड़ान भरने ,
अरमानो की गहराइयों को छूने ,
वह लड़ती गयी ,
बस ,
लड़ती गयी ;

इस धूप में अपनी छाँव बन ,
इस अँधेरे में अपनी मशाल बन ,
चलती गयी ,
बस,
चलती गयी ।
