Swal Jannat da NahiN

Jannat, 38, was buried alive with Fatima, 45, for trying to stop the burials of three young women of village Mir Wah in Balochistan, July 2008.

Jannat da nahiN
swaal tera mera ae

Oh chawhndi
te saah kujh bachaa awndi
Koi aas hyati de viah awndi
Kaal koThri ch eidaN manaa awndi
PeyareyaN dae
ishareyaN te
koi din
hor
nach-nachaa awndi

Jannat vuDee se
vaDeRi ae

KewaiN apna aap bachaa awae ha
Saah ghuT ke hyati langhaa awae ha
Kaal koThri ch eidan mana awae ha
PeyareyaN dae
ishareyaN te
sathnaN
jewndiaN
dafna awae ha

Jannat de karni
kehndi ae
Vo!
Hyati dheeyaN dae
mul pujdi
naaN putraN dae
mul!
Ja hakoomat joR lae apni,
asseiN ve koi kaleyaN neesae,
punj lukayaaN,
lakhaaN vaikheiN!

A Punjabi poem by Fauzia Rafiq
