The End

Poem By Abdul Bari Jahani

In every today I see remains of a yesterday
Do not speak to me of mornings and morrows
I have been deprived of free flight
Do not explain life to a wounded bird like me
Beware, do not cry for my false sighs
Beware, believe not, my screams and my pain
Fearing the hunter, I have left many a flock
Speak not to me of parting from friends
Do not pride yourself on your tricks, cheating and talismans
I fell willingly in to the trap of destiny
I have just emerged from the prison of reason
Spare me the tales of Plato's intellect
Since i have chased away my heart's hopes for the future
Do not tell sweet stories about yesterdays
Seeing the seeds of the end in the beginning, I wept.
Do not lament to me of time's passing
Do not hope in the begging bowl of the sky
The Cup Bearer of eternity has placed your bowl upside down.

This land is Afghanistan - It is the pride of every Afghan
The land of peace, the land of the sword - Its sons are all brave
This is the country of every tribe - Land of Baluch, and Uzbeks
