Wohi Meri Kam Naseebi Wohi Teri Be Niazi

Wohi Meri Kam Naseebi Wohi Teri Be Niazi

 

 

Wohi Meri Kam Naseebi, Wohi Teri Be Niazi
Mere Kaam Kuch Na Aya Ye Kamal-e-Ne Nawazi

Mine ill luck the same and same, O Lord, the coldness on Your part:
No useful aim has been served, By skill in poetic art.

Mein Kahan Hun Tu Kahan Hai, Ye Makan Ke La-Makan Hai?
Ye Jahan Mera Jahan Hai Teri Karishma Sazi

Where am I and where are You, Is the world a fact or naught?
Does this world to me belong, Or is a wonder by You wrought?

Issi Kashmakash Mein Guzreen Meri Zindagi Ki Raatain
Kabhi Souz-o-Saaz-e-Rumi, Kabhi Paich-o-Taab-e-Razi

The precious moments of my life, One by one have been snatched:
But still the conflict racks my brain, If heart and head are ever matched.

Woh Faraib Khurdah Shaheen K Pala Ho Kargason Mein
Ussay Kya Khabar Kya Hai Reh-O-Rasm-E-Shahbazi

Na Zuban Koi Ghazal Ki, Na Zuban Se Ba-Khabar Main
Koi Dil Kusha Sada Ho, Ajami Ho Ya Ke Tazi

Nahin Faqar-O-Saltanat Mein Koi Imtiaz Aesa
Ye Sipah Ki Taeg Bazi, Woh Nigah Ki Taeg Bazi

Koi Karwan Se Toota, Koi Bad-Ghuman Haram Se
Ke Ameer-E-Karwan Mein Nahin Khuay Dil Nawazi
