Hoon main ek fakir

Jaoon, lage jahan mera teer

Jahan le chale meri taqdeer

Hoon main ek fakir

Dhoond raha hoon mera pir

Jaise Ranjha ko dhoonde Heer

Na koi naqsha na koi lakeer

Buss, hoon main ek fakir


A wanderer am I

Walking wayward paths

Going with the wind

Sometimes seeking wisdom

Sometimes on a whim

No notion of direction or outcome

A simple wanderer am I

And onward I tread


  1. Maybe, because of my own departure, this poem makes me feel sad and somehow strikes a chord with me. I’ve always recognised that we spend much time searching for the unfathomable as it’s not always easy to just be. Perhaps I’m also of the opinion that what would drive us, make our lives meaningful if we weren’t wanderers and wonderers ? A beautiful and touching poem Kunal.😀
