Sahil Ki Soughat! Khar-o-Khs-o-Khaak
O fearless wave, at bed of river gems are found.
What are the gifts of coast? There dust and thorns abound.
Lekin Neestan Tera Hai Namnaak
The temper of lightning flash that darts, my spark contains,
But still your bed of reeds is moist and sap retains.
Nadan, Nahin Ye Taseer-e-Aflaak
The age in which you live is influenced by you:
To spheres that ever spin, It can no way be due.
Jis Ne Siye Hain Taqdeer Ke Chaak
I have come ʹcross in life men with such craze and pluck;
They could darn with much ease the rents produced by Luck.
Masti Hai Jis Ki Be-Minnat-e-Taak
That man is toper fine,Who owes, no debt to wine:
Such men are very few, They raise no cry or hue.
Woh Mai Ke Jis Se Roshan Huwa Idraak
The East has taverns still where you can find such wine,
Which makes perception dull with grandeur gleam and shine.
In Ummaton Ke Batin Nahin Paak
Men with vision bright for West have hope so slight:
The hearts of West arenʹt chaste for actions good havenʹt taste.
