Who Is Not Sad - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

Why the moon is so much grieved?
Moon light seems absent minded,
How much the stars are restless!
A silence is ruling the leaves,
wind has lost something,
how static is it?
The dew is crying,
without a reason?
Buds, too, are sleepless.
Queen of Night! Looking for the gone springs?
I am restless, sleepless,
having lost my self!
Could I say!
I am not waiting for her!
How can I say,
not waiting for her.
Night is a passing show!
Just for you,
everyone is sad with me!

This is a translation of the poem Udasi by Akhtar Jawad

    Our state of mind will be reflected in the surroundings. If we are joyful, everything around will be seen in a glorious light. On the other hand, if we feel low and sad, Nature and all objects in it will have a dark and desolate look! The image of the sad lover waiting for his love is effectively brought out! (Report) Reply

    A right title as Who is not sad . Yes every human being on this earth is ultimately sad. Because none can satisfy his or her goal or wish which is never ending or ever increasing. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful imagery, when we are sad we see everything around us sharing the same feeling, when we are happy we see the happiness around us..........Very well thought and written........10++++ (Report) Reply
