    Default The World is a Playground!!

    I perceive the world as a playground
    Where dawn and dusk appear in eternal rounds
    In His Universal form is a plaything the throne of Solomon
    The miracles of the Messiah seem so ordinary in my eyes
    Without name I cannot comprehend any form
    Illusionary but is the identity of all objects
    My anguish envelopes the entire desert
    Silently flows the river in front of my floods
    Ask not what separation has done to me
    Just see your poise when I come in front of you
    Truly you say that I am egotistical and proud
    It is the reflection, O friend, in your limited mirror
    To appreciate the style and charm of conversation
    Just bring in the goblet and wine
    Hatred manifests due to my envious mind
    Thus I say, don't take his name in front of me
    Faith stops me while temptations attract
    Inspite of Kaaba behind and church ahead
    I am the Lover, yet notorious is my charm
    Thus Laila calls names to Majnu in front of me
    "Dies" not one though the union is a delight
    In premonition of the separation night
    Alas, this be it, the bloody separation wave
    I know not what else is in store ahead of me
    Though the hands don't move, the eyes are alive
    Wine and goblet, let them stay in front of me
    Says "Ghalib"
    Conscience is companion and trusted friend
    Don't pass any judgments in front of me.

    Ghalib Mirza Asadullah Khan (English translation)
