क्यों: Some experimental poetry

I am trying to innovate on existing forms of poetry with this post. This is an innovation inspired by the haiku tradition. The presentation of this poem is designed as follows:
  • The expression is in the form of very short phrases leaving the interpretation open to the reader to some extent
  • It begins with two related but seemingly different question
  • Each stanza answers the two questions, in order of their appearance, in a concise way till the point both the questions seem to merge
  • A final conclusion is in the form of a word picture
Please give your feedback and you are also welcome to try your hand at this new game format in comments.

जीना...
लिखना...
क्यों?

अपरिचित क्षमताएँ.
अनदेखे सवाल.

उलझे राज़.
हकीक़त का रोग.

खुद का एहसास.
सपनों की तलाश.

चैन की सांस.
स्वछन्द सोच.

अपरिमित ब्रह्माण्ड.
