Look at the City From Here -Faiz

Faiz’s writing depicts a visual image of Karachi (1965), where he speaks about how the city was effected through massive depression and chaos in that time and era.What intrigues me the most about this piece  is that the chaos he mentions still prevails in the city we live in today. His writing inspired me write something myself on the city. Hope you guys like it 🙂

Ek aur raat guzarne ko hai..
Ek aur baat kehni tu hai..
Yeh kesa shehar hamara hai..
Bebas ghum ka maara hai..
Pehle roshan tha ab andhera hai..
Kahin loot machi kahin dhoka hai..
Har saaans ko kisne roka hai..

Yeh daur bahut harjayee hai..
Har moor moor ruswayee hai..
Yehin jeena hai..
Yahin marna hai..
Har ghoont zehar ka peena hai…

Yeh daur bahut harjayee hai..
Har moor moor ruswayee hai..

Ek aur saans bikharne ko hai..
Ek aur baat kehni tu hai..
