Isse Hai Sodaye Bakhya Kari, Mujhe Sirr-e-Pairhan Nahin Hai
O God! Teach a little Love to my happy Intellect.
It loves fine stitching but my shirt has no collar
Misal-e-Shama-e-Mazar Hai Tu, Teri Koi Anjuman Nahin Hai
As I got Love’s ardor the angels said on azal’s morning
“You are like the grave’s candle, you have no assembly”
Woh Cheez Tu Mangta Hai Mujh Se Ke Zair-e-Charakh-e-Kuhan Nahin Hai
No friend is available here, this land is friendless, O Heart!
You want something from me which does not exist under the sky
Bina Humare Hisar-e-Millat Ki Ithaad-e-Watan Nahin Hai
The Arab architect made it distinct from the whole world
The foundation of our nation’s fort is not geographical unity
Namood Har Shay Mein Hai Humari, Kahin Humara Watan Nahin Hai
Why this coming and going, future’s concern is a conceit
We are manifest in everything, we do not have any homeland
Jo Kaam Kuch Kar Rahi Hain Qoumain, Unhain Mazaq-e-Sukhan Nahin Hai
Somebody should take my message to the Makhzan’s editor
Activist nations do not have taste for poetic literature!
