The Real Hero Poem by Akhtar Jawad

The Real Hero

Rating: 5.0

Who is the real hero of Milton’s Paradise Lost?
Adam or the one whose blood, according to Iqbal,
A famous Urdu poet, made the story colorful,
A work of art, shining in the poems, large or small!

When Gabriel asked his old friend,
Could you plead guilty and regret your sin,
I am hopeful He is benevolent and kind,
He may bandage your bleeding chin!

I feel the heat of the painful fire,
You are burning in for violating the accord,
The hero replied; go on reiterating My Lord, My Lord,
My pleasure! I’m a thorn in the heart of God!

What I did, I did in His love,
Let me live there, that’s a lovely place,
Wait for the Day of Judgment, you’ll see,
My chin, my body, my face with a grace!

You don’t know who’s been incarnated as a lover,
Who is a beloved, a secret accord?
All you know she is beauty n sacrifice,
So go on reiterating My Lord, My Lord!

(Based on an Urdu poem of Allama Iqbal)
