The Hajjis Go To Mecca - Poem by Bulleh Shah

The hajjis go to Mecca.
My beloved Ranjha is my Mecca.
Yes, I am crazy!

I am wedded to Ranjha.
Still my father pushes me.
Yes, I am crazy!

The hajjis go to Mecca
My bridegroom, within me, is my Mecca.
Yes, I am crazy!

Hajjis and ghazis both lie within us,
Thieves and pickpockets too.
Yes, I am crazy!

The Hajjis go to Mecca
But I am going to Takht Hazara.
Yes, I am crazy!

Wherever is your beloved, there lies Kaaba,
Though you search the four books.
Yes, I am crazy!
