Image result for images of a girl sadly smiling

Why have you been constantly smiling?

What’s the despair that you are veiling?

Having wet eyes and a smile on your face

What’s fact that you’re showing on the face?

The tears you sustain now with such patience

Will turn into venom if bear so much patience

Time has healed your wounds with resilience

Why are you scratching those with touchiness?

Destiny is the game of unreliable phase of life

You’re being beaten by the passing time of life
………………………
tum itnā jo muskurā rahe ho

kyā ġham hai jis ko chhupā rahe ho

āñkhoñ meñ namī hañsī laboñ par

kyā haal hai kyā dikhā rahe ho

ban jā.eñge zahr piite piite

ye ashk jo piite jā rahe ho

jin zaḳhmoñ ko vaqt bhar chalā hai

tum kyuuñ unheñ chheḌe jā rahe ho

rekhāoñ kā khel hai muqaddar

rekhāoñ se maat khā rahe ho

The birds may not have squealed for no reason
Someone from city may have come for treason

Tree cutters would be aware of consequences
Bodies will burn in the sun if no shade resilience

Blooming spring’s founder didn’t even assume
Who let thorns to pierce into blood in volume?

A cheery chirpy bird sitting on the electric wire
Considers jungle to be of someone else’s pier

Flying from the jungle the terrified thirsty birds
Appeared every mirage as an ocean to the birds

Urdu Poetry: Kaifi Azmi
Translator: Tanveer Rauf

شور یوں ہی نہ پرندوں نے مچایا ہو گا
کوئی جنگل کی طرف شہر سے آیا ہو گا

پیڑ کے کاٹنے والوں کو یہ معلوم نہ تھا
جسم جل جائیں گے جب سر پہ نہ سایہ ہو گا

بانی ِ جشن ِ بہاراں نے یہ سوچا بھی نہیں
کس نے کانٹوں کو لہو اپنا پلایا ہو گا

بجلی کے تار پہ بیٹھا ہوا ہنستا پنچھی
سوچتا ہے کہ وہ جنگل تو پیارا ہو گا

اپنے جنگل سے جو گھبرا کے اڑے تھے پیاسے
ہر سراب ان کو سمندر نظر آیا ہو گا

shor yūñhī na parindoñ ne machāyā hogā
koī jañgal kī taraf shahr se aayā hogā

peḌ ke kāTne vāloñ ko ye mālūm to thā
jism jal jā.eñge jab sar pe na saaya hogā

bānī-e-jashn-e-bahārāñ ne ye sochā bhī nahīñ
kis ne kāñToñ ko lahū apnā pilāyā hogā

bijlī ke taar pe baiThā huā hañstā panchhī
sochtā hai ki vo jañgal to parāyā hogā

apne jañgal se jo ghabrā ke uḌe the pyāse
har sarāb un ko samundar nazar aayā hogā
