I can barely chew gum and walk at the same time. Sometimes walking is hard even when I’m not chewing gum.
chup chaap bhaithe raho kehte ho,
wahaan likha hai khade hona haraam hai.
kyun mila te ho paani mein zeher
aur pesh karte ho ke jaam hai?
kyun banke qatil-e-ishq, kehte ho
mebhoob ki bahoon mein araam hai?
kyun manate ho azaadi ka aaj jasn,
jab asliat mein aaj tanhaai ki shaam hai?
kyun rastoon pe todh ke patthar, phir kehte ho
yeh zakhm meri nakaami ka anjaam hai?
kyun mujhe chodte nahin, zaalim,
teri duniya mein mera kya kaam hai?
and i fear that this moment
too quickly withers and dies.
and i wonder if you see in mine
what i see in your eyes.
Well, I’ll be damned! And so will you.
Sometimes I will ask people how they are doing just to remind them how they are doing.
People have small imaginations, the world is pretty big.
while you do mean what you say,
what you say doesn’t mean anything.
I once made a decision, but then I undecided.
i, too, saw dreams.
but then i did,
and my doing did more than my dreams ever did.
