Written: Lyrics written by Meher Baba as a young man under the pen name "Huma".
by “Huma” Avatar Meher Baba
Music composed by Anahaat Planet
A spiritual poem from the Persian style of sacred poetry speaks of the delusion of the hindrances such as anger, lust , and greed, renouncing such things and in longing for the love of the Divine you are freed from this cage....Anahaat's try at phoenetic translation..
Kando shakkar dilado, taure magazme hoon mai
Shireen sookhan joorado, harfi bahasame hoon mai.
Dooniyako chodtehi, rabka pata milega,
Kayamse dikhege malik, abtak havasme hoon mai
Khalikse mai hoon banda, bandeseh wo hai khalik,
Moojme hai haqadil, fariyad rasame hoon mai.
Khaki nazarse rabko, hai dekhneki kawahish
Aisa nahi ho sakta picaray absmeh hoon mai
Ye darde vo vafa hai, ch-haatimay dam rooka hai
Sab koochbhi ho chooka hai, akhri nafasme hoon mai
Huma ka roohi toota yehi tanke’ pinjareeme
Azad karde Allah, badhani kafas mai hoon mai.
