Dreams can grow on Concrete, Just Believe…

One Evening when Kavi on iPad (poet next door) was walking down on streets of New delhi, he saw a small crack on side of a road and a yellow flower just emerged and started talking…

Poem in Hindi Text, Followed by English Version
Taken from bilingual poem collection ‘Poetic Buddha’ by Siddharth

ख्वाब खड़े हो सके

इसके लिए

ज़मीन खरीदो

रूह बेचो

ये दस्तूर लगता है

थोड़ा बदल रहा है

वो देखो

कॉन्क्रीट पर,

घुटने के बल

एक नन्हा पीला फूल

मचल रहा है

© सिद्धार्थ

International Version

For dreams to stand up in this real world

You don’t need to buy a Piece of land

You don’t need to sell your Soul

All the Old Sayings have changed

You just need to believe

See that little Yellow flower

emerged from that crack

standing and saying

Yes, i was able to come out

yes… Dreams can grow on Concrete

(voice over is by me in hindi, i recorded audio while on move on an iPad, so please bear with that slight disturbance, from now on i would try to do voiceover in both hindi and english languages, till then my international viewers can read the translation)
