Philosophy And Religion
Samjha Nahin Tasalsul-e-Sham-o-Sehar Ko Main
Wherefore this succession of day and night?
And what are the sun and the starry heavens?
Darta Hun Dekh Dekh Ke Iss Dast-o-Dar Ko Main
Am I in my land or in banishment?
The vastness of this desert fills me with fright.
Laun Kahan Se Banda-e-Sahib Nazar Ko Main
I know not the enigma of this life of mine;
I know not where to find one who knows.
Rumi Ye Sochta Hai Ke Jaun Kidhar Ko Main
Avicenna wonders where he came from;
And Rumi wonders where he should go.
