My first Urdu poetry book “Hum Banajarey Loag” or “Us Nomads” is under publication.
Here is the title poem along with its English translation. English translation is just for online audience and will not be part of the book.
Slowly and Gradually we turned into Nomads / Couldn’t bare restricstion, us Nomads
Trust we must only in God and then ourselves / Found every route on our own, us nomads
Paid the price of freedom all our lives / Even the highest bid couldn’t buy us Nomads
Never liked expensive clothing like Itlas & kamkhwab / Worship Not Wealth us Nomads
Unstoppable to waves of injustice and oppression / Tyranny but surrenders to us Nomads
Startled by the game of hope and despair / Eyes went blind & home all lost us Nomads
Yesterday Ohio Today Dallas & who knows next / Pack stuff and hit the road us Nomads
