na kisī aañkh nuur huuñ na kisī ke dil qarār huuñ

jo kisī ke kaam na aa sake maiñ vo ek musht-e-ġhubār huuñ

I'm not the light of any eye, for me none has a care

no use to anyone am I, dust merely scattered there

na kisi ki aankh ka nur hun na kisi ke dil ka qarar hun

jo kisi ke kaam na aa sake main wo ek musht-e-ghubar hun
