I Desire – Allama Muhammad Iqbal

I want to have the extremes of your Love, 

See, how silly am I, wishing for unachievable. 
I don’t care if you maltreat me or promise to unveil your beauty, 

I just want something unbearable to test my fortitude 
Let the God fearing people be dwelling in the paradise, 

For, instead I want to be face to face with you. 

(I don’t want to go to paradise but want to observe the Divine Beauty) 
O fellows, I am here for a few moments, as a gust, 

Like morning star I will fade and vanish in a few moments. 
I disclosed the secret in public, 

I need to be punished for being so rude.
