Khudkushi shayari

The idea of bringing one’s own life to an end is a terrible one. When does a human being get so provoked to commit this act and under what circumstances? Some poets have addressed these issues in creative and personal terms. Reading some of the verses on suicide is like passing through the mixed states of despair and disappointment, as well as doubt and fear.

ġharīb-e-shahr to faaqe se mar gayā 'ārif'


amiir-e-shahr ne hiire se ḳhud-kushī kar

ḳhud-kushī jurm bhī hai sabr tauhīn bhī hai


is liye ishq meñ mar mar ke jiyā jaatā hai

ḳhud-kushī karne meñ bhī nākām rah jaate haiñ ham


kaun amrit ghol detā hai hamāre zahr meñ

koī ḳhud-kushī taraf chal diyā


udāsī mehnat Thikāne lagī

maut ke darinde meñ ik kashish to hai 'sarvat'


log kuchh bhī kahte hoñ ḳhud-kushī ke baare meñ

saḌak pe baiTh ga.e dekhte hue duniyā


aur aise tark huī ek ḳhud-kushī ham se
