☆ English translation of Urdu poetry couplets of  Anonymous litterateur of Social Media# 33☆

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

लोग लम्हों में ही

ज़िंदा  रहते  हैं

वक़्त अकेला सिर्फ

इसी  सबब  से  है…!


People  live  mere

in the   moments

Time is aloof due

to this reason only…!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

रिश्तों  का  नूर  तो

मासूमियत  से  है…

ज़्यादा समझदारियों से…

रिश्ते  फ़ीके पड़ने लगते हैं…


Effulgence of relationships

resides just in innocence

Relationships begin to fade

with excess of wiseness!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

सर  पर  ताज  रखते  ही,

दुश्मन तो मिल ही जायेंगे

पहले  दोस्त  तो  ढूँढ़  लूँ,

लिबास पहनकर फकीरी का..!


Inevitably many enemies will

be found with the coronation,

Let me first find the friends

donning the garb of a fakir..!

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃

अक्सर  वही  दीये

हाथों को जला देते हैं,

जिन्हें  हम  हवा  से

बचा  रहे  होते  हैं..!


Often,  the  same lamps

only  burn  the  hands,

whom we keep protecting

from  the  gust  of  wind!
