FIVE NEVER-HEARD-BEFORE-COUPLETS OF FAIZ
Faiz Ahmad Faiz was among the most celebrated and popular poets of Urdu. He faced political repression for his revolutionary views. He is acknowledged as a torchbearer of progressivism and modernism in Urdu poetry. Here are five couplets of Faiz that you may not have heard of or read before. You may read them below:
Love-afflicted I lay, why don’t you bring me a cure
What a healer are you, heal me for I adjure
I’m a lazy one, I’m not a Farhad
Who else in this city of dead than I
One may, or may not get, the desired wine in hell
But one would get rid of the counselor at least
Life is but a poor man’s cloak where one
Keeps sewing it with patches of pain
He’s coming; he’ll come; he’s on his way
Awake did I stay all the night for my day
