What are you thinking?

کیا بتاؤں میں کیا سوچ رہا ہوں؟

شہیدِ عشق کا صلہ سوچ رہا ہوں

j

مقصدِ انساں تو سمجھ گیا میں

اب مقصدِ خدا سوچ رہا ہوں

j

جو گلے تھے  سب کر لیے

نئی وجہِ گلہ سوچ رہا ہوں

j

کم عقلی ایسی کے مقتل میں

سزاِ جرمِ وفا سوچ رہا ہوں

j

سوداِ عشق تو گھاٹے کا تھا

کیا دے کیا ملا؟ سوچ رہا ہوں

j

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

j

And I understand the reasons

Behind man’s creation

Now why

The creation of God?

j

I had things to say to you

And I said them all

As complaints

Now I am thinking of new ones

j

And even though

I stand in the killing fields

I am not smart enough to realize

The punishment for honesty

j

Since love was a trade

I suffered a huge loss

I gave up what for what

I think about that

j

And he wants me to pray for him

However

I do not know

How to pray
