Foul And Fair
Takhiyyulat Bhi Hain Taba-e-Tulu-o-Ghuroob
Just like the stars that shine in azure sky,
Thoughts have short span of life and soon they die.
Yahan Bhi Maarka Aara Hai Khoob Se Na-Khoob
The realm of self has its ups and downs,
Even here, the Fair and Foul exchange their frowns.
Jo Ho Nashaib Mein Paida, Qabeeh-o-Na-Mehboob
If self has reached the height, its acts are fine,
Debased, its deeds as good one canʹt define.
