With Due Apology - Poem by Akhtar Jawad
Oh God! I know,
I am your contrast!
You are a smile
I am tears,
you are handsome
I am ugly,
you are nothing but love,
I am nothing but hate,
you are pleasant I admire,
I am painful fire,
but the clay,
your love your proud,
until my sacrifice,
my self for you!
Do you know why?
I hate the rest,
but I truly love you!
(Based on Allama Iqbal's lines: -
Ho kabhi khilwat moessar to yeh pooch Allah sey,
qissae Adam ko rangeen kar geya kiska lohu.
Ask God if you get a lonely moment,
whose blood gave color to Adam's story)
