(Zarb-e-Kaleem-040) Falsafa

Falsafa
Philosophy

Afkar Jawanon Ke Khafi Hon Ke Jali Hon
Poshida Nahin Mard-e-Qalandar Ki Nazar Se

The thoughts of young both masked and plain
From Qalandarʹs eyes canʹt hid remain.

Maloom Hain Mujh Ko Tere Ahwal Ke Main Bhi
Muddat Huwi Guzra Tha Iss Rah Se

I know your states for I too crost,
These tracts in times which now are past.

Alfaz Ke Pechon Mein Ulajhte Nahin Dana
Ghawwas Ko Matlab Hai Sadaf Se Ke Guhar Se!

The wise ʹbout words do not quarrel,
He heeds not shell who seeks the pearl.

Paida Hai Faqat Halq-e-Arbab-e-Junoon Mein
Woh Aqal Ke Pa Jati Hai Shaole ko Sharar Se

Men crazed with love of God possess,
Wit that from spark the flame can guess.

Jis Maani-e-Pecheeda Ki Tasdeeq Kare Dil
Qeemat Mein Bohat Barh Ke Hai Tabinda Guhar Se

An import complex confirmed by heart,
Is precious more than gems in mart.

Ya Mudra Hai Ya Nazaa Ki Halat Mein Giraftar
Jo Falsafa Likha Na Gya Khoon-e-Jigar Se

As good as dead is science and art,
Which took not birth from bleeding heart!
