salet

salet

bachpan accha tha
salet jaisa
jo bhi likha jata tha
mit jata tha asani se


ab accha nahi kuch
ration-card ke form jaisa
tera naam likh diya hai
mit-ta hi nahi



an attempt at translation...

slate board

childhood was good
like a slate board
whatever used to be written
got erased easily

nothing is good now
like a ration-card* form

have written your name
it doesn't get erased

* one of the many essential documents of government life in India. one of the proof's that you are who you are!
