Dazzled By Europe
Ke Tu Wahan Ke Amarat Garon Ki Hai Tameer
Your light is only Europe’s light reflected:
You are four walls her architects have built,
Faqat Nayam Hai Tu, Zar Nigar-o-Beshamsheer!
A shell of dry mud with no tenant soul,
An empty scabbard chased with flowery gilt.
Meri Nigah Mein Sabit Nahin Wujood Tera
To your mind God’s existence seems unproved:
Your own existence seems not proved to mine.
Kar Apni Fikar Ke Johar Hai Be Namood Tera
He whose self shines like a gem, alone exists;
Take heed of it! I do not see yours shine.
