A motivational poem

Kehtey hain:
"Khamosh raho tu sukhi raho ge
Ghar mein raho tu sukhi raho ge
Kitabon mein jo tum ne seekha hai
Bhool jao tu sukhi raho ge
Sola crore jo bhooke mar rahe hain
Marney do, tu sukhi raho ge"

Insaaf per nafiz nazar-bandi hai
DiloN ke milne pe pabandi hai
ZubanoN pe taale laga rahe hain
Niyyat in hukamranoN ki gandi hai

kia yeh aik mushkil faisla hai?
kia ab bhi intizaar ki gunjaish hai?

Nahi chahiey mujhe yeh
Sisk'ti hoi lachaar zindagi
Dari hoi, murda, bekaar zindagi

Bohat kos chuke tareekh ko
Bohat pooj chuke iblees ko
Haq ki roshnai jab ragoN mein ho
Farz hai badlna taqdeer ko

Jeena hai tu dil se jeo
Dil ki baat her bol ke jeo
Jin haathoN mein bandoqeiN hain
Mal-e-haraam ki sandooqeiN hain
Un zalim hathoN ku tor ke jeo
Dil ki baat her bol ke jeo



--
And that inverted Bowl they call the Sky,
Whereunder crawling coop'd we live and die,
Life not your hands to It for help-- for It
As impotently moves as you or I.

-Omar Khayyam

(The Emergency Times Eds- We encourage all artistic expression of our revolutionary and unyielding thoughts and feelings. We have a rich tradition of poetry, literature, theatre and music and want to see more of the same. Let us also revisit the works of our historic greats such as Habib Jalib Faiz and Manto. It is time we found inspiration within ourselves ad within our history, and devised novel ways of raising our voices into a war cry to battle all forms of opression. Any such purposeful work be it in the form of theatre, music, poetry or art is more than welcome. Contribute pictures videos, audio files and other web links.
The artist. The intellectual. The revolutionary. In perfect harmony. This is how our movement must crystallize).

I was really touched by your poem. So much so that I translated it in english and will be reciting at a narrative night in Columbia university.
