I Desire Poem by Allama Muhammad Iqbal

I Desire

Rating: 3.3


I want to have the extremes of your Love,
See, how silly am I, wishing for unachievable.

I don't care if you maltreat me or promise to unveil your beauty,
I just want something unbearable to test my fortitude

Let the God fearing people be dwelling in the paradise,
For, instead I want to be face to face with you.
(I don't want to go to paradise but want to observe the Divine Beauty)

O fellows, I am here for a few moments, as a gust,
Like morning star I will fade and vanish in a few moments.

I disclosed the secret in public,
I need to be punished for being so rude.

I Desire

It would be nice if English translation of Iqbal's poems is also provided. Non-Urdu-Persian readers obviusly cannot benefit from his thoughts. I hope the managers of the website will do something in this regard. thanks

Powerful poem betwixt passionate love and obeying God, between meeting his Beauty in Paradise or seeing the Light. He is a Great Poet from Pakistan.
