Waqt Ka Tu Intezaar Kar January 14, 2016

Posted by simarp in : Poems , add a comment

This poem is in Hindi, I am sure a friend would volunteer to stitch it together in English. This came together as a response to a Jigar Moradabadi’s poem shared by a dear friend. I wrote it under my pen name Simar Patialvi.

Waqt ka tu intzaar kar…

Dil ka kaya kassor hai

Dimag be dastoor hai

Mahoobat be daag hai

Yeah ek adbhoot aag hai.

Is aag ko roko mat

Jasbaat ko toko mat

Waqt hi inko fuslaae gaa

Kuch naya geet soonaae gaa

Jawani ka yahi kasoor hai

Duniya ka yahi dastoor hai

Mahoobat pae yahi daag hai

Yehhi ek adbhut raag hai.

Is raag ko bajne do

Is aag ko thamne do.

Waqt hi inko tokay gaa

Kisi nayee aag main jhonke gaa…

Kisi nayee aag main jhonke gaa..

Waqt ka tu intzaar kar…

Waqt ka tu intnzaar kar. –

 

Mind – The Poem March 21, 2011

If “dead” is the first thought in your mind
You still have a hope.
If the first color in your thoughts is “black”
You still have a hope.
If your dreams are all about “life unplugged”
You still have a hope.
If you see color of your face as “pale’
You still have a hope.
If the only thing you want to write is “your obituary”
You still have a hope.
If the only music on your mind is “the last post”
You still have a hope.
If the air around you smells like a “gas chamber”
You still have a hope.
If the only drink you need is “poison”
You still have a hope.
If the only thing you wish to discard is “your life”
You still have a hope.
If your all fantasies are heap of “nightmare”
You still have a hope.
If you pronounce your name as “shame’
You still have a hope.
If you abhor God and have no trust in “him”
You still have a hope.
As long as your mind “works”
You still have a hope.
As long as your “mind works”
You have a hope
As long as “your mind works”
You are a hope
As long “as your mind works”
You are ‘The Hope”
“You are The Hope”
