Mu'tamid's Lament In Prison (Allama Iqbal)

Make This Poetry Your Favorite

In my breast A wail of grief Without any spark or flash Alone survives Passionless, ineffectual A free man is in prison today Without a spear or a sword Regret overwhelms me And also my strategy My heart Is drawn by instinct to chains Perhaps my sword was of the same steel. Once I had a two-edged sword It turned into the chains that shackle me no. How whimsical and indifferent Is the Author of fates
