The True Guide
Khawar Ke Sawabit Hon Ke Afrang Ke Sayyar
The sedent nations of the East, or active dwellers of the West;
Are inmates of such dungeons that were built by them with zeal and zest!
Ne Jiddat-e-Guftar Hai, Ne Jiddat-e-Kirdar
The priests who guide the Christian church, and elders who maintain the Shrine,
Lack newness of discourse and speech, Bereft are they of actions fine.
Shayar Issi Aflas-e-Takhiyyul Mein Giraftar
Experts in statecraft practise still the same antique guile and wily tricks
No flights of fancy the bard can claim to ideals low and mean he sticks!
Ho Jis Ki Nigah Zalzala-e-Alam-e-Afkar
It is time that the expected Guide may soon appear on worldly stage;
His piercing glance in realm of thought would cause a violent storm to rage.
