Shot At Urdu Poetry


Tum The Nahi

Zindagi ke utaar chadhao mai kho diya tum ko kahin
Tum kehte the saath ho mere, par kabhi saath the nahin

Hum tum se kya gila karein jab khud bhi the behosh pade
Hosh toh aata tha kabhi, par tumhare saath kabhi hosh mai the nahi

Insaan hoon, galtiyon se seekhta hoon
Aik jo galti hui mujh se, maaf karne ke liye tum yahan the nahin

Tadapte the tumhari ik nazar ke liye, socha yaadon se kaam chala lun
Par hua yeh meri kismat mai ki yaadon mai bhi tum the nahin.

This is my first attempt to write urdu poetry. I am thinking of writing in urdu as well. I hope I do. 🙂

Sir Muhammad Iqbal


Duniya Ki Mehfilon Se Uktaa Gya Hoon Ya Rabb

Kya Lutf Anjuman Ka, Jab Dil Hi Bujh Gya Ho?

Sir Iqbal was a very influential poet and wove magic into the words he spun around in his poems. He brings out the deep, buried feelings of a person. He inspires through his poems towards one’s conscience. It pulls a person into its depths and makes one reflect at the inner self. He was a passionate person who covered all fields and subjects through poetry. He voiced his feelings during the freedom struggle and inspired the people of India to fight. He instilled courage in the hearts of people. “I have seen the movement of the sinews of the sky, And the blood coursing in the veins of the moon.” “IQBAL” Words are a powerful tool and if known how to use it, a man can make history. Sir Iqbal was one such person. A jewel among the various urdu poets.
