What are you thinking?

کیا بتاؤں میں کیا سوچ رہا ہوں؟

شہیدِ عشق کا صلہ سوچ رہا ہوں


مقصدِ انساں تو سمجھ گیا میں

اب مقصدِ خدا سوچ رہا ہوں


جو گلے تھے  سب کر لیے

نئی وجہِ گلہ سوچ رہا ہوں


کم عقلی ایسی کے مقتل میں

سزاِ جرمِ وفا سوچ رہا ہوں


سوداِ عشق تو گھاٹے کا تھا

کیا دے کیا ملا؟ سوچ رہا ہوں


استاد متمنی ہے میری دعا کا

کیسے کروں دعا؟ سوچ رہا ہوں

How could I tell you

What I am thinking about

A gift, a boon and its reward

That’s what


And I understand the reasons

Behind man’s creation

Now why

The creation of God?


I had things to say to you

And I said them all

As complaints

Now I am thinking of new ones


And even though

I stand in the killing fields

I am not smart enough to realize

The punishment for honesty


Since love was a trade

I suffered a huge loss

I gave up what for what

I think about that


And he wants me to pray for him


I do not know

How to pray
