PAKHWA

Che dunya aab-o-gil ta insan raghay .....................................When to the blend of sand and water (Earth), the “human” came.

Meena raghla fitna raghla toofan raghay..............................................Came love, Came curse, a storm came.

ma bega pa khob khwaray zulfay lidalay.....................................With disheveled hair, I saw her in a dream (last night);

Khuday dai khair kri chi Qaasid pareshaan raghay...............Her well-being I desire (from God); as worried the messenger came.

Shwa maluma chi zwani hum da kar siz wu...........................................Came to know youth was a thing of use.

chi kam khkule rana tair shu armaan raghay......................................The beauty that I passed, its yearning came,

chi mi zra ayena makho ta hawas kro.............................. .For when I let the greed for the mirror-faced reflect onto my heart;

hairaan taley wu zama na hairan raghay.....................................................Awe that had left me, in awe it came.

Khpalo malgaro pakhwano sara zam...............................................................With friends of time; I go,

za da sahra ta leewano sara zam.............................................................With mad men to the desert; I go.

umer shu tair nashwa poora latana................................................Life has passed, incomplete the quest remains.

agha nimgaro afsano sara zam.................................................................With my incomplete tales, I go.

wehshata sta merabani wa pa ma.................................................................O Fear! Your blessing; It is;

siri greewan da zamano sara zam.............................................................As fearlessly with the times; I go.

Wakht aakhiri dai sitamgara rasha.........................................................O cruel friend! Come, for the end is near;

sta daroghjano bahano sara zam...................................................................With Your false excuses; I go

la kho mi sthar pa nwar khaata prata di....................................................Yet, My way is set upon the rising sun

na laka nwar da preewato sara zam............................................................Not that with the falling sun, I go.

krama jahaan chi da Pukhtoon zalmay...............................................For when I make the world; a Pakhtoon of age;

da khpalo paighlo hoosalo sara zam..................................................................With my youthful spirit; I go.

ma hamza chi da beltoon tyaray sharalay...................................When I (Hamza) was fighting the darkness of separation

laka shama zama kor ta khandaan raghay...............................................The beacon of happiness; came to my abode.

thal ba pa laara mairano sara zam.................................................................Forever shall I go with the valiant.

yama Pukhtoon da Pukhtano sara zam................................................For I’m a Pakhtoon, and with Pakhtoons; I go.

waye aghyaar chi da dozakh jaba da.....................................................That the rivals name as the tongue of Hell,

za ba jannat ta da Puktho sara zam............................................................To Paradise, with Pakhto, I (will) go.
