shikwa / jawab e shikwa - Iqbal

Iqbal's Shikwa and Jawab-e-Shikwa


Why should I abet the loss, why forget the gain,
Why forfeit the future, bemoan the past in vain?

Hear the wail of nightingale, and remain unstirred,
Am I a flower insensate that will not say a word?

The power of speech emboldens me to speak out my heart,
I'll sure be damned, I know, if fault my God.
