Sublime Hope

image

My thoughts pure as a white rose
From maligning them, I detest.

My destination is a bright star
From falling ,my steps I guard.

Embarking on my strong will
I trudge my path.

Loom of hatred and lies
Circling me around.

Unaware of how high I rise
My hopes shall keep me astound.

#A famous song in urdu, from a Pakistani Drama.

The Door to Peace

image

Here follows a much heard old hindi song, with it’s english translation. The reason I share it here is to kindle the light of hope in every heart across the globe. Believe me , the melody of the song will enthrall you.

The current era, where goodness is almost forgotten. Brother shedding brother’s blood. Homes are no more a haven. Women are safe nowhere.  Innocent children losing their lives to barbarism. Suicide bombers and what not ?

Massacre killings have become common. Life remaines with little meaning to itself, uncertainty has surrounded us from all sides. Bomb blasts shattering our souls. You never know, a smiling person you met in the morning,  can be shot with an AK-47 for no reason at all?

Ridiculously painful this is.

In such times when humanity is almost synonymous with brutality. Commoners like you and me,  whose voice often goes unheard, whose pleadings are mere documents stacked in piles of records, who can only sigh watching the pains of their beloved fellows. We need to connect. We need to be together. To give each other courage.

I write this post because the recent terribly painful Peshawar attack shaked my being from it’s root of existence. I actually sensed the fear, spent a sleepless night. Words fall short of how grieved my heart was , watching the plight of our fellows across the border.

Let’s respond to this call. Let’s stand together. Let’s hold hands. Let’s become one. Let’s forget the differences among us. Let’s pray for goodness to strike our lives again. Let’s connect to every other miserable soul like our’s. Let’s ignite a flame that’ll enlighten self conscious to make this world a better place .

We shall overcome some day…

The Song

Hum Honge kaamyaab, hum honge kaamyaab 
hum honge kaamyaab ek din 
ho ho mann main hai vishwas 
poora hai vishwas 
hum honge kaamyaab ek din. 

[We shall overcome, we shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We shall overcome some day]

hogi shanti charo aur , hogi shanti charo aur 
hogi shanti charo aur ek din 
ho ho mann main hai vishwas 
poora hai vishwas 
hogi shanti charo aur ek din 

[We shall live in peace, we shall live in peace
We shall live in peace some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We shall live in peace some day.]

hum chalenge saath saath 
dale haathon main haath 
hum chalenge saath saath ek din 
ho ho ho mann main hai vishwas 
poora hai vishwas 
hum chalenge saath saath ek din. 

[We’ll walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We’ll walk hand in hand some day.]

Nahi darr kisi ka aaj 
nahi bhay kisi ka aaj 
Nahi darr kisi ka aaj ke din 
ho ho mann main hai vishwas 
poora hai vishwas 
nahi darr kisi ka aaj ke din.

[We are not afraid
We are not afraid some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We are not afraid some day.]

Please listen to this song. Its beautifully composed.

Unfound Love

image

Friends promised to stay
Unfulfilled, forgotten were their words I say.
But he will be their in my thick and thin,
He will be my rock forever to stay.

Defeated I have been by few,
Now i wait for him, to bring sunshine of love
And remove the misty dew.

Nothing would compare to his commitment,
His overwhelming presence,
His soothing words.
The scent of his love will fill my life,
Erasing my scars and all strifes.

Lamenting in dark nights,
When will u come?
To become my knight.
Take me far and kill my pain,
No more can I now bear the strain.

The moon, stars and sky will smile at us, 
In Flowery fragrant of love we will indulge.
My first true friend he will be
For my soulmate,  my strength will be in thee.      

We will hold hands forever,
Never to part, in love to shelter.
My strength will never falter,
Our love shall only prosper.

Our promises firm as the last verdict,
Life’s journey we will walk together.
Gliding across the many phases,
We will stay close,  until death chases.

Filling all voids with our vigorous love,
Never to repent, pain shall shove.
Implicit communication to be,
My eyes powered for the message of thee.

Lonesome is my every single day,
Little happiness comes to stay.
Though, not in reality have we met,
In your wait, my dreamland is all set.

I have faith in my Lord,
He will not fail my hope.
One day, I will meet him,
Love, love and love will fill the space.

Mornings will come with a delightful surprise,
From a beautiful dream to a charming reality.
The song of love we will sing together,
Dancing on our love tunes, memories we will gather.

Days turning into months, months to years,
No metric for my painful solitude.
Your face I have seen once in my dream,
Satiated , blissful I was with no seam.

Enough I have dreamt of you in my blue hours,
Come in my life and fill your color.
Calling with my heart, calling you loud,
My unfound love to be found.
