Shikwa THE COMPLAINT Stanza (1)

Shikwa
THE COMPLAINT

Stanza (1)

Kyun Ziyaan Kaar Banun, Sood Framosh Rahun

Fikr-e-Farda Na Karum, Mahw-e-Ghum-e-Dosh Rahun

Why should I choose the loser’s role? Forbear to seek what gain I may?

Nor think of what the morrow holds, But brood o’er woes of yesterday?

Naale Bulbul Ke Sunoon, Aur Hama Tan Gosh Rahun

Humnawa Main Bhi Koi Gul Hun Ke Khamosh Rahun

Why should my ears enraptured hear the plaintive notes of Philomel?

Fellow‐bard! a rose am I to lose me in sweet music’s swell?

Jurrat Aamoz Miri Taab-e-Sakhun Hai Mujh Ko

Shikwa Allah Se Khakam Badahan Hai Mujh Ko

For I too have the gift of song which gives me courage to complain,

But ah! ‘tis none but God Himself whom I, in sorrow, must arraign!
