Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

Mirza Asadullah Khan (Ghalib)-27-12-1797(Agra) To 15-02-1869 (Delhi)

Trapped

 

 

 

 

 

As in the trap of temperament human being is trapped,

Like preparing to celebrate festival, fasting has trapped.

 

Only has the longing for material of survival, not Paradise,

In the condition of every efforts, knowingly, promises has trapped.

 

When became habituated in the net of dejection and hope,

Found accused of not done sin and then prison has trapped.

 

Started travelling in the search to solve puzzles of destiny,

And destroyed the present, found tomorrow has trapped.

 

Tried to plan the future in his own particular way,

While doing so, he found himself in the dance of alcohol has trapped.
