Use kahna ye duniya hai

yahaN har moR par ayse bahot se

log milte haiN

jo andar tak uterte haiN

abad tak saath rahne ki

ikatthe dard sahne ki

hamesha baat karte haiN

use kahna yeh duniya hai

yahaN har shakhs matlab ki

hadoN tak saath chalta hai

yuN hi mausam badalta hai

sabhi qasmeiN

sabhi wade

sabhi rasmein

achaanak toot jaate haiN

Use kahna


Tell her, this is the world

Where at every corner you will meet many people

Who manage to gain access to your inner self

Who always talk of living together till end of time

Talk of facing together all hardship

Tell her

This is the world

Here everyone walks together

Till their own need is met

Then the weather changes

All of a sudden

All the promises. All the wows

And all the traditions are broken.

Tell her.

      I would think it is of Parveen Shakir. In any case I found it on FB page named after her. It doesn’t say the name of the shayer. It is simple but powerful and based on truth.
