Koi Aawaz Nahin

gard hamare gharon tak phail gai

us mausam men koi barish nahin

ham ne badal ke akhiri tukde ko guzar jaane diya

ab vo mere na-farman bete ki tarah

vapas nahin aaega

Not a Sound

dushmani hamare dilon tak phail gai

us raat men koi karamat nahin

ham ne paani ko kichad men mil jaane diya

ab vo budhe ki khoi hui binai ki tarah vapas nahin aaega

maut hamare jismon tak phail gai

in galiyon men koi avaz nahin

ham ne khuun ko sadkon par bah jaane diya

ab vo mere bichhde hue khuda ki tarah

vapas nahin aaega

Dust has spread through our homes

there’s no rain in this season

we let the last bit of torn cloud pass away

now

like my disobedient son

it won’t come back

Hatred has spread through our hearts

there’s no miracle in the night

we let the water run into the mud

now

like an old man’s lost vision

it won’t come back

death has spread through our bodies

there’s no sound in these lanes

we let blood run in the streets

now

like my lost god

it won’t come back
